Legendary Disco Star, producer and Guitarist Nile Rodgers has published his autobiography, and it’s storming the bet-sellers charts worldwide. While promoting his autobiography “LE FREAK” on BBC News, Nile Rodgers spoke about what inspired him to form his band, Chic.

“There were a couple of catalysts … I saw a band called Roxy Music here in London and I thought they had this completely immersive artistic experience and that was interesting to me … they looked cool, the audience looked like them … Roxy had these great covers and everything was stylised … So we dressed up in suits, called ourselves ‘Chic’ and we became a concept band, if you will.”
