Mazzetti has held executive positions at A&M Records and A&M/Polygram, among other record companies, and been a consultant and independent contractor to Universal Music Enterprises, Gateway Mastering, Rondor Music and Mattel. He has worked with and guided superstars including John Mayer, Sting, Janet Jackson and Amy Grant.
He purchased the home in 1992 from singer-songwriter Axl Rose of the band Guns N' Roses for $640,000, according to public records.
The buyers this time were attorney Alan Hearty and his wife, Hilary, a finance executive who moonlights as a singer-songwriter and can continue the home's musical line of ownership.
The listing agent was Cliff Weimer of Prudential California Realty's Pacific Design Center office. Lisa Brende of Coldwell Banker, Los Feliz, represented the buyers.
