On this day in music history: November 12, 1984 - "Arena", the fourth album by Duran Duran is released. Produced by Duran Duran and Nile Rodgers, it is recorded at The Oakland Coliseum, The Forum in Los Angeles, CA, Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Canada, and Wembley Arena in London from December 1983 - April 1984 (live tracks) and Maison Rouge Studios in London in July 1984 (studio track only). Recorded live during the bands' "Sing Blue Silver" World Tour, the ten track album will also include the newly recorded studio track "The Wild Boys" (Pop) produced by Nile Rodgers. The video for the single will be an elaborate short film directed by Russell Mulcahy based on the William Burroughs novel "The Wild Boys: A Book Of The Dead". The clip is shot on the 007 Sound stage at Pinewood Studios in London at a cost of over one million dollars, making it one of the most expensive music videos made to that date. The original LP is packaged in a gatefold sleeve (designed by Assorted Images) with a bonus photo booklet ...

1944, Born on this day, Jeff Beck, guitarist. Beck worked with Screaming Lord Sutch before replacing Eric Clapton in The Yardbirds. As a solo artist, he released the 1967 single 'Hi *** Silver Lining', before forming The Jeff Beck Group, which featured Rod Stewart on vocals and Ron Wood on bass. His 1975 album Blow By Blow was produced by George Martin and set a new standard of jazz-rock fusion music. Beck had previously formed Beck, Bogart and Appice with Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice, and later recorded with The Honeydrippers, (alongside Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Nile Rodgers), who had the 1984 US No.3 single Sea Of Love.

This was the first hit song with a rap. Artists like Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, and Kurtis Blow had been rapping since the mid-'70s, and The Sugarhill Gang had the first Top 40 hit earlier in 1980 with "Rapper's Delight," but until "Rapture," rap had never been incorporated into a hit Pop song. Debbie Harry did the rap, and it was really ridiculous, with lyrics about the "Man from Mars eating cars," but the novelty helped the song become a hit. Harry's rap is so goofy that it sounds like she could be mocking the genre, but this was very early in the evolution of Hip-Hop, and many of the rhymes that came out of the New York block parties were just as silly. Harry and Chris Stein of Blondie championed rap and got involved in the community, often attending these block parties - they even took Nile Rodgers to one, which is where he learned that his song "Good Times" was a DJ favorite. Blondie brought rap to a far larger audience with this song; Debbie Harry says that a lot of rappers - including mem ...

"Any song that sells a million copies is amazing because it means it connected on an emotional level with a million strangers. Think about that the next time you feel like trashing a super-successful pop artist. You may not like the song yourself, but a million people did. Are you smarter than a million people?" "Every song is non-fiction. The success comes when the listener is convinced to enter the reality provided by that song." -Nile Rodgers and Paul Williams
5 years ago almost to the day, I was sitting in News24's offices alone, working the 10pm - 6am shift, updating the elections map for a measly R400 so I could buy food for the month and have some change. I was on a steady diet of two minute noodles, water, and bread. Today, I'm sitting at Toronto airport leaving for New York, after playing a couple of shows here and in London too. Yesterday, I sat 10m from Quincy Jones and listened to him speak about his career and life for 2 hours. The day before I listened to Nile Rodgers speak about his. Life is weird, sometimes.

SAM LONDON, born Jared Samuel Erskine, is a 23-year-old singer songwriter from South Bend, Indiana. A natural tunesmith who possesses an R&B drenched honey toned tenor, London’s ability to craft infectious pop accessible melodies in seconds has led him to work with some of the biggest names in the music business. Much of his training came as a teenager, performing cover songs in local bands.“I basically learned how to imitate all the hot acts of the day whether it was R. Kelly, John Legend or Lenny Kravitiz and through that constant studying I found my own sound,” he says. “One thing I noticed about great songs is that they generally have great stories. As an artist my main objective is to reach people and tell them a story that they can either relate to or in some way learn from.” London recently wrote some songs with legendary Chic guitarist and producer, Nile Rodgers, the week after he received three Grammy awards from his work with Daft Punk and Parrell including “Get Lucky”.“How can y ...

Drop The Mic:! Nile Rodgers, from his bio Le Freak: ''By now ''dance'' was a loaded word for me. The Disco *** backlash had given me a post traumatic stress disorder and I'd vowed not to write any songs with that word in them for a long time….It gets even more outrageous: In my early twenties I'd studied dance with famed choreographer Syvilla Fort, who taught the Dunham technique (Dunham has been called ''The Matriarch and Queen Mother of Black Dance) Later in life I even had the Nicholas Brothers tap on a Chic record out of sheer admiration for them. I had a spiritual and a physical connection to the word 'dance'. How could I be afraid of it? Its not impossible to explain. In almost every sphere of life I'd seen the same pattern: The dominant culture manages to direct less powerful people away from their cultural, financial, geographical and residential base so that the dominant culture can move in and claim it. They rename those assets and presto change, you've got gentrification. ..As a well-res ...

Just a little trivia: Disco was the last mass popular music movement that was driven by the baby boom generation.[28] Disco music was a worldwide phenomenon, but its popularity declined in the United States in the late 1970s. On July 12, 1979, an anti-disco protest in Chicago called "Disco Demolition Night" had shown that an angry backlash against disco and its culture had emerged in the United States. In the subsequent months and years, many musical acts associated with disco struggled to get airplay on the radio. A few artists still managed to score disco hits in the early 1980s, but the term "disco" became unfashionable in the new decade and was eventually replaced by "dance music", "dance pop", and other identifiers. Although the production techniques have changed, many successful acts since the 1970s have retained the basic disco beat and mentality, and dance clubs have remained popular. A disco revival was seen in 2013, as disco-styled songs by artists like Daft Punk (with Nile Rodgers), Justin Tim ...

Just caught up with the Brits... thank God for the skip button. Physically cringed with embarrassment at James Corden, behaving like the naughtiest boy in school let loose in the adult's staffroom. Pharrell Williams was cringing as well as Corden sat with his back to Nile Rodgers to quiz Williams on his effing HAT! As for the Arctic Monkeys... felt quite sorry for them having THAT *** for a frontman. Thank God also for Beyonce. Is it any wonder Bowie didn't turn up.
Freaky Friday practice - Since 'Rappers Delight' has in a way made it back 'in the news' again, I thought I'd share the source material. "Good Times" was written by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers, the founding members of Chic (as in Le Freak, c'est Chic) in 1979. It's the most sampled song in rap, with the Sugarhill Gang making it the most familiar and famous with Rapper's Delight. Since I'm teaching Simon bass, learning this bass line is a must!
The FULL Episode of this week's UNSUNG featuring NILE RODGERS AND CHIC is available on While you're there, get the FULL CHIC experience br revisiting their Classic Interviews from 1978 and 1979 and the 2-part conversation Darnell Meyers-Johnson had with Nile Rodgers on the release of his no-holds-barred autobiography Le Freak in 2011.
Chaos and calamity surrounded the youthful years of Nile Rodgers. Nile was exposed to alternative and dangerous worlds that could have resulted in a short stint on planet earth. Nile Rodgers and his band Chic may be identified with the party anthem Good Times; but his path to a pop paradise was awash with mayhem and madness. The paths of addiction and ambition meet head on in Nile Rodgers: Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco and Destiny (Little Brown Books); and an astonishing autobiography is unleashed. Rodgers childhood was surrounded by beatniks with insatiable appetites for fast living. Teenage Nile fled a family nest that was more like a mobile home with an interchangeable cast and he took to busking. He later jammed with Jimi Hendrix, toured with the Sesame Street road show, and played with a variety of acts. However, a 70’s bond with Bernard Edwards (Nard) was the inspiration to mix up diverse influences (including Roxy Music and Kiss) and as a result Chic and the sharp end of disco r ...

Adele Emerges to Attend Prince Concert in London While Adele keeps mostly to herself these days, one thing that can get her out in public is a great concert. Last year, she made the scene at Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga concerts, and on Monday night, she stepped out to check out an intimate show by Prince. The British paper The Daily Mirror reports that Prince staged the gig at the legendary London venue Ronnie Scott's, which only seats 140. The gig started at midnight and ran 'til 3am, but that didn't stop Adele from turning up, along with the likes of Kate Moss, Michelle Rodriguez, model Cara Delevigne, actor Steven Fry and Nile Rodgers of Chic and Daft Punk fame. Adele wore a hat and bulky striped coat to the gig, making her harder to spot than most of the other stars in attendance. Prince has been playing spontaneous, so-called "guerilla gigs" in London, as part of what he's calling the Hit and Run Tour, playing classics and surprise numbers.
Great Performance and sorry forgot to mention the great Nile Rodgers on guitar :) Disclaimer: I do not own these songs all rights go to Daft Punk and crew an...
