Having spoken with Hall of Famer, Nile Rodgers last week, we are pleased to examine the career legacy, influence on generations of artists and the technical prowess that is funk/dance music.
Harking back to James Brown, George Clinton’s Funkadelic and Sly and The Family Stone, Nile and Chic took the baton in 1977 and created a soundscape that inspired hundreds of artists most notably “our INXS”!
We get to hear some fascinating “time and place” anecdotes from Darryl Hall, Tim Farriss, Michael Hutchence and Jon Farriss in working with Nile Rodgers combined with the huge respect that Nile had for the drumming exploits of Jon Farriss. And with the power of You Tube, we might even have a unique song opening to episode 167 with the band warming up to an obscure Nile solo song: Yum Yum!!
So sit back, pour a drink of your favourite poison and embrace the genius that is Nile Rodgers Part 2!
