What? Hugh played on the debut. He did not co-write anything. He wrote his own bass lines, yes. That is not song writing, just like writing guitar solos is not song writing. He was not brought in to compose the songs.

Also, to say that Richie "was responsible for all the guitar riffs"... that is wrong on so many levels. Richie was NOT "the guitar guy". He contributed lyrics. He contributed vocal melodies. He ALSO wrote some guitar riffs, yes. If I Was Your Mother is most definitely his riff. Just like In & Out Of Love is Jon's.
