Chic

Chic is an American band that was formed in 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers, drummer Tony Thompson, and bassist Bernard Edwards[?]. They are best remembered for their disco songs, including "Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)" (1977), "Everybody Dance" (1977), "Le Freak" (1978), "I Want Your Love" (1978), "Good Times" (1979), and "My Forbidden Lover" (1979). In the 1980s, the band struggled to obtain airplay and sales and eventually disbanded. In the early 1990s, Rodgers and Edwards regrouped and worked on new material. Edwards died in 1996 in Japan, but Chic continued to tour with new musicians.
