The virtual lineup of the band consists of singer and keyboardist, 2D, drummer Russel Hobbs, guitarist Noodle, and bassist Murdoc Niccals. The four are an international group, representing the United States, England, and Japan. Through their songs and music videos, we are able to witness their adventures.
Following four incredibly successful albums, Damon Albarn revealed to The Guardian in 2012 that future Gorrilaz projects were unlikely after a falling out with the band’s co-creator, Jamie Hewlett.
During their active time, Gorillaz collaborated with an array of musical powerhouses, including Ike Turner, Neneh Cherry, Snoop Dogg, De la Soul, Little Dragon, Mos Def, Bobby Womack, and Dennis Hopper, who was better known for his acting prowess.
