Since 1994, they’ve delivered a signature post-grunge sound that has cemented them as heroes of rock and roll, with Dave Grohl going from drummer to frontman and lead guitarist. After ending the 2018 tour for their 9 th  studio album, “Concrete and Gold”, fans knew they wouldn’t be waiting too long for some new material.

  Wu-Tang’s RZA Talks Second Chances and Cut Throat City Film By Allison Kugel As leader of the legendary multi-platinum selling rap group, The Wu-Tang Clan, RZA, or Bobby, as he is known to close friends and colleagues, had a particular way of putting beats to razer-sharp lyrics that made you feel part of a song’s creative process.
