Jack of all trades Nile Rodgers is a producer, songwriter, musician, composer, guitarist - everything - as well as co-founding member of one of Disco music's greatest bands, Chic. For over forty years, Nile Rodgers & Chic have retained peak popularity in the UK since their first hit 'I'm Doing Fine Now'.
Beyond just their own sound, Nile Rodgers & Chic have developed music and musicians as a whole. The Sugarhill Gang aka the original founders of recorded hip-hop used 'Good Times' as a basis for 'Rappers Delight', and so did Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. Blondie, The Smiths, Duran Duran, Queen and more have all cited Nile Rodgers & Chic as a formative influence on their sound.
