    Now, a collaboration of Nile and Chas & Dave would be something!!!! ;)

    BTW, the sampled bass line on Eminem's "My Name is" was played by Chas (well-respected session bass player in his day) and was lifted from a Labi Siffre's  "I got the"

    Nope, that was played by Dave, who was the respected session bass player.

    Chas played drums on a lot of the Joe Meek stuff, played session guitar, played in Head Hands and Feet with Albert Lee etc

    BOTH of them are super talented musicians - and nobody does what they do better. And try playing it... its not easy!

    But, I'd love to see Nile try to find some space to do his chock-a-wocka guitar in between Chas' piano and Dave's bass - good luck on that, sunshine. ;-)

    Thanks for putting me right @impmann - I thought I read it was Chas, as I know Phil Lynott was a fan of his bass playing. Seems he played guitar on this one

    Ta :)

    Do we have many famous Fretboarders walking amongst us on this thread? 

    I'm sure Ricky Ross from Deacon Blue is on here - he has a lovely Fender Jag for sale.

    As a starter for 10, I'm sure he can be beaten though. Jimmy Page, reveal yourself now...!

    I think I enjoyed Chas n Dave the most. Bit underwhelmed by the new Chic song but when they got into Good Times they are such a slick machine. 
    Dum dum dum, dum dum de dum, dum dum dum, dum dummmm.

    It didn't do much but I didn't like the guest singer's voice but 'Good Times' just summed up their brilliance and how fantastic to see all the other bands dancing and enjoying them.

    I actually found Nakhane quite interesting

    Goat Girls - too busy trying to look uninterested and "cool" - was the bassist even playing?  It looked like her right-hand fingers weren't actually touching the strings...

    Grown most uncommonly fat!

    Got the Saturday night version on. Different guest singer for Chic who seems better but still not as good as the band’s own vocalists. 
    I enjoyed Goat Girl second time around. I think sometimes with Later it’s easy to think ‘ go on impress me’ and these things can be better if they just sneak up on you.

    Gaz Coombes was a bit good. Which one was the Fretboarder?

    I saw Chas & Dave supporting Led Zeppelin, in the 70s.

    Why did Goat Girl feel the need to look bored all the time? As a result, they were boring to look at (with the exception of the drummer). I know its about looking 'cool' but ffs, ladies...

    Chas and Dave do look a bit frail now, bless 'em. National treasures IMHO.

    Gaz Coombes was playing one of the new US Jaguars - it certainly stayed in tune well despite some extreme wang bar action. I can't say I loved the new stuff... maybe it'll grow on me, but its just great to see and hear him play again.

    I know its not good sport to criticise Nile but... jesus those new songs are tedious. The first one went on and on and on... but didn't go anywhere. The band seemed very under-rehearsed, the new stuff felt like a jam tbh.

    The chap from South Africa (name escapes me) was the stand out for me - I thought he was genuinely different to everything else, plus he's a very interesting chap to listen to (speak and music). I must investigate more...
