A Music Man

V posted a classic Chic tune on his blog today. It reminded me about the brilliance of Nile Rodgers. 

Nile Rodgers is legendary within the world of music producers.  Whether it was his work with Diana Ross, Cyndi Lauper, Duran Duran Madonna, David Bowie, or his own band Chic, there is a track Nile birthed that made you feel the groove.

Nile has written an autobiography that should be out, if not now, any minute now. I got a taste of his story in the NYT. Click here for a look into his early childhood. It was so not what I expected, which made it very interesting. 

I'm gonna hunt down this book. I want to know more about his journey.
