    This reminds of a story that Nile Rodgers told on "Fresh Air," the NPR show. He said John Deacon was in the studio with Chic when they recorded "Good Times." Deacon proceeded to leave the studio, got with Queen and recorded "Another One bites the Dust." I forgot who said it, but the saying goes: "A good musician doesn't borrow, a good musician steals." That's not meant as a put down, very few of us is 100% original.
