    I heard the bass player wrote this, Freddie loved it...but the rest of the band HATED it. I could be wrong, but it's what I remember from a documentary on TV?

    Don’t blame the Brothers, blame Robert Stigwood. But we did get two great Beatles covers from Aerosmith and EW&F.

    Worst than Disco was when my idols RUSH dipped their toes in the Rap game with that turd Roll the Bones they thought was a good idea. Would have been a perfect career for them if not for that nightmare

    "Another Brick in the Wall" is far more funk than disco. It's not disco, but Pink Floyd used a lot of funk rhythms.

    I would say this is disco-like.
