GOOD READ: Nile Rodgers “Le Freak” (2011)
Since the new Daft Punk album “Random Access Memories” features 3 tracks (including the lead single “Get Lucky”) with the legendary Nile Rodgers, now is a good time to share my review on his autobiographical book “Le Freak” that he released in 2011.
It’s a brilliant & honest look at his childhood, upbringing, rise to stardom alongside Bernard Edwards in Chic and his musical productions with the major artists & groups that he helped take to the next level… superstars like Madonna, David Bowie & Duran Duran who did their best work with Nile Rodgers producing and writing material for them. The book also talks about his current battle with cancer, which is also highlighted on his excellent blog called Planet C here: http://www.nilerodgers.com/blogs
Check out this amazing video of Nile discussing his latest project with Daft Punk for their album “Random Access Memories”:
I highly recommend this book for all music fans, it’s a truly inspiration story. Nile is a living, breathing reminder that you can accomplish anything that you are passionate about and you can do it with a smile on your face. You can get it from Amazon here.
