I bet HairyHammer diddles his imaginary children in his wank fantasies, even now they are older and at imaginary universities.

Yes definitely, as you said Nile does not shut up about Edwards he gives him the exact same billing as himself if not more so, when it comes to the musicality of the songs.
I only know this because I have watched several docs on Nile and Chic over the past two years, always loved the music but I cannot lie I knew nothing of any of the band members and had it not been for that daft punk hit 5 years ago I doubt I would know much about them today.

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
At the start of Good Times, you hear Nile Rodgers' guitar accentuating Edwards bass riff (basically playing along in unison with it) I'm not in any way denying that Rodgers is a genius, just pointing out that almost all (but not all) his greatest work, and in particular Good Times was done in collaboration with his great friend, the equally talented Edwards (who also did some great stuff on his own).

Never be the one that dies first. Unless you are John Lennon.

In another one bites the dust Queen that is all Bernard Edwards.

Maybe I do not know what a hook is should I have said bridge? , I thought it was the 'Good Times' bit which is the part Niles did, personally I think the Base is the most Interesting part of rappers delight, but if you listen to good times by chic you can hardly hear the heavy base as you do in rappers delight it is much more the Nile Rodgers bit.
In fact it only seems to hit the ear at the end of the song.

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
Fuck me! The bass line to Good Times and Rappers Delight isn't also the hook. The things you learn on here. Somebody should tell Queen they nicked the wrong bit. ;)

I think the base or Bernards bit goes from start to finish but what I see as the hook comes in around 24 or so seconds, that is all Niles.

'The hook in Rappers Delight was taken from Niles Rodgers...'

The hook in Rapper Delight is taken from long-time friend, partner and co-composer of Good Times, Bernard Edwards' iconic bass-line - as Nile Rodgers would be first to say.

It's not the most sampled song of all time. it's Amen Brother by The WInstons.

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
Niles was brought up by two selfish drug addicts (Heroin) and still managed somehow to keep his brain focused enough to learn how to play classical flute but primarily clarinet by the time he was 12-13, he could also read music at that age.
He picks up a guitar at 16 and three years later at 19 he is playing with the Apollo band at the Apollo Theatre who notoriously had to be tight and on point as the Americans say, in other words if you are not a very good musician you cant and will not get in so he was playing Guitar for the crem de la crem of black artistes/singers, he is a genius without any doubt

Didn't realise that hits define talent. Cliff is a fucking genius then. I'm with Mr Hatred on this one.

I think Nile is a bit of a genius personally. He’s underrated if anything.

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
I watched that Chic concert on tv last night and thought it was awful. They sounded like a Northern club act and what are they doing covering crap like Like a Virgin and The Reflex?! Rodgers should've given it up after the hits dried up and stuck to producing.

'...cos I have two teenage kids who never even heard of him till recently '

Maybe your kids are retards, which wouldn't be too much a surprise...

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
I would put Rodgers up there with Jeff Lynne and Barry Gibb for being able to consistently write and produce hits for other artists as well as themselves.

Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
There is no way that anyone you have mentioned could do what Nile Rodgers can do to a song he is a fucking Hit maker.

HairyHammer 11:27 Mon Jan 1
Re: Z Listers, Scotchers and Benders - Then there is Nile Rodgers
Are you serious ?.

Have any of those artists had hits in every decade because Nile has.
Sorry but none of them comes close to what Rodgers can do.
I think you need to study his catalogue a bit.

The hook in Rappers Delight was taken from Niles Rodgers do you have any idea what that means that is basically hip hop covered.
He produced Like a Virgin Madona, Lets dance Bowie,Reflex Duran Duran, We are Family Sister Sledge, Get Lucky daft Punk, Upside Down Diana Ross.

Go on then who is a musical genius in your mind and I am talking popular music.

I bet none of the people you mention will have people up and dancing the way Nile Rodgers can.
