The end of a great duo


Recommended Posts

There was a program on radio4 last winter about sampling on songs. On it, now don't have a go at me if its crap or owt, but my mrs and I are sure that they said Keyboard and Bass part of Eminem's My Name Is was nicked from a British Funk record and that Chas and dave were the session musicians who played it.

I could try and Wiki it I suppose....



Blimey, we was right!.

For rapper Eminem's hit single "My Name Is," hip hop record producer Dr. Dre wanted to use a sample (written by Siffre and including Siffre on electric piano) of his song I Got The for the rhythm track. Siffre objected to what he describes as "lazy writing" (in the sleeve notes of the EMI re-mastered CD of the source album Remember My Song): "Attacking two of the usual scapegoats, women and gays, is lazy writing. If you want to do battle, attack the aggressors not the victims". This tune also featured English duo Chas & Dave who were at the time prominent Session musicians.
