  1. Hey,
    Im a pretty big Chic fan and im curious to weather edwards and rogers realeased their own album outside of chic and sister sledge, or did they just write stuff for various bands?

    Both Nile Rogers and Bernard Edwards released solo albums. Bernard Edwards solo album did not really feature any especially hot bass playing. Bernard just stayed in the groove. Nile let out at least two solo albums, both of which featured Bernard Edwards on s few cut. Rogers first solo album was "The Land of the Good Groove."

    Some other good non-Chic Bernard Edwards would be his work with Robert Palmer on stuff like "Addicted to Love", the Power Station album (I read that John Taylor replaced Bernard Edwards tracks note for note on the final tracks.) and Madonna's "Like A Virgin" album.
  3. Don't forget Diana Ross' "Diana" from 1980.

    ...or Bernard on Debbie Harry's "Backfired".
  5. They wrote the music, but their arrangements got dumped, allegedly because La Ross didn't want to sound like a singer for Chic but like herself. Diana The Deluxe Edition has all original tracks PLUS the Chic mixes, aka the mixes that got the boot....

    Atlanta / Macon (sigh)
    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    There's also Sister Sledge and Bernard played on Jody Whatley's first solo disc.
  7. Funny, cos it still sounded like Chic! Especially "Upside Down."

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    as far as the reference to the other projects that you mention that Nile & Bernard did work on is valid,however John Taylor did not replace any of Bernards tracks on the Power Stations 1st lp.
