At the Coachella festival, Dhani Harrison talked to Rolling Stone about how much fun he's been having as a member of Fistful of Mercy, his band with songwriters Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur. "We don't always agree because it's three frontmen, but just kinda took our skateboards around America and just had a good laugh," he says. Harrison also discussed his ongoing collaborations with RZA, whom he befriended when the rapper wanted to use a sample from his father George's song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on a Wu-Tang Clan track.
