With respects to the Wu, and RZA in particular, the number of musicians that are in awe of his talent is pretty substantial. When he isn't dropping beats on the Afro Samurai animated series, he is pairing up with some heavyweights in music to do amazing things. Consider for instance, Blackroc, a collaboration with the Black Keys. I think one of the best parts of this colabo is to listen to Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney talk about meeting RZA on Fresh Air (which as a complete aside, I cannot tell you how awesome listening to Terry Gross is). Listen especially around 36:02 - "I couldn't even speak to him, I was so nervous".
I have to say that Wu-Tang week was a blast - Any suggestions of future theme weeks or things you would like to see would be great -
