Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards Profile:
 
Bernard Edwards' supple, big-bottom basslines powered platinum hits by Chic, the '70s dance/pop
band that he co-founded with guitarist/songwriter/producer Nile Rodgers. The group scored three
gold singles and one platinum single including two number one pop/R&B singles, "Le Freak" and
"Good Times"; two platinum albums, C'est Chic and Risque; and one gold album, Chic. A Chic live
recording, Live at the Budokan, was released February 23, 1999, through Rodgers' Sumthing Distribution.
The bassist co-wrote and produced all of Chic's records as well as those the duo produced for Diana Ross,
Sister Sledge, and others.
Edwards later produced and played in '80s supergroup Power Station ("Some Like It Hot"); produced ABC's
"When Smokey Sings," Ross' "Telephone," and Rod Stewart; and played bass on the Rodgers-produced Madonna
LP Like a Virgin and Jody Watley's "Don't You Want Me."
By the mid-'80s, the duo was no longer producing together exclusively. Tiring of their rigorous production
and touring schedule, Chic disbanded with Take It Off (1981, "Stage Fright") and the 1982 LPs Tongue in Chic
("Hangin'") and Believer being their last albums for Atlantic.
Both men embarked on illustrious production careers: Rodgers had hits with David Bowie
(the number one gold single "Let's Dance," "China Girl"), Madonna (the nine-million selling LP Like a Virgin,
with the number one title track single and the Top Five hits "Material Girl," "Angel," and "Dress You Up"),
and the System ("Comin' to America") while Edwards recorded with ABC, Rod Stewart, Power Station, Starpoint,
Missing Persons, and Nona Hendryx, among others. Rodgers and Edwards reunited
for a 1992 Chic LP, Chic-ism
("Give Me the Lovin'," "Chic Mystique") for Warner Bros. Records.
 
At the age of 43, Bernard Edwards died of pneumonia
 while touring with Chic in Tokyo, Japan, on April 18, 1996.
