A Miles Davis-Nile Rodgers Collaboration Would Most Likely Have Been Awesome

51c0bqyb60l It seems that for the talented Nile Rodgers, who just ripped it up a few days back at the Glastonbury festival, his biggest regret is never working with jazz legend Miles Davis.

The Chic guitarist, who has worked with the likes of Davis Bowie, and most recently Daft Punk on ‘Get Lucky’, exclusively told BANG Showbiz:

The thing that I lament most in my life is that Miles Davis wanted me to write a hit record for him, but he was Miles Davis, so he didn’t just call me and say Nile, ‘Will you write me a hit record?’ He went, ‘Nile write me a mother-f***ing ‘Good Times’.’ I didn’t know that’s what he really meant. I was embarrassed because we were good friends and I knew he had a wicked sense of humour, so I thought he wanted me to write a cool song, so I kept writing these jazz fusion songs and every time I turned one of them in, he’d say, Man I can write that. I want you to write me a mother-f***ing ‘Good Times’.
