Nile Rodgers.

I'm not a huge fan of Chic and the disco/funk hits their responsible for, but you gotta hand it to Nile Rodgers. The dude is one prolific motherfucker. He's like the ultimate session man in the late '70's throughout the early '80's. He's played with everybody, from Bowie to Herbie Hancock to P-Funk to Duran Duran. His rhythm guitar work isn't really rhythm at all. It's a collection of incredibly complex riffs that build the fabric of a groove.

Now he's playing one of those classically complex riffs on the soon to be released Daft Punk album. Prolific. Indeed. Here's a nice video segment released by Daft Punk talking about Rodger's career and contributions to the new album.
