Bernard Edwards

If it were only for his inestimably copied motif in “Good Times” the late, truly great Bernard Edwards would be legend. However his career as a producer, songwriter, recording artist, and bassist with Nile Rogers and Chic, The Power Station, Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, Robert Palmer, Jody Watley, and Debbie Harry to cite a select few, is equally legend. An absolute master of the groove, Edwards’ immaculate tone by way of flat-wound strings on a MusicMan Stingray bass, matchless use of rhythm and space, and melodic genius continues to inspire generations of players ranging from rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, disco, dance, funk, and rhythm and blues.
