You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy. Legendary producer and co-founder of Chic, Nile wrote 'We are Family' for Sister Sledge and 'I'm Coming Out' for Diana Ross, and then produced Let's Dance for David Bowie and Like a Virgin for Madonna. But before he reinvented pop music Nile Rodgers invented himself. Le Freak is an astonishing, exuberant and inspiring story of a creative genius. It is also a stunning recreation of a time and place - by the man who wrote its soundtrack.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A rich, warm tale of a fascinating life in the golden age of New York - and pop - Observer

Consistently exhilarating - Independent on Sunday

The lonely, sickly child of two jazz-obsessed junkies, Rodgers grew into a brilliant musician blessed with a clear artistic vision that propelled him into almost unimaginable success, with him riding a spectacular tidal wave of sex, money and drugs. An unforgettable, gripping book - Sunday Times

Name a star and you can bet they're in this book, playing or partying with Rodgers. But far from being a succession of name-dropping anecdotes, this autobiography is a wonderfully funny, moving and wise reflection upon the important things in life: the people you love and the things you create - Sunday Telegraph

“Honest, refreshing and entertaining”

Le Freak is easily the best Biography I have read in a long time. It is engaging, brutally honest, heart warming and most of all charts the recollections of possibly one of the most influential musical genuises. Well... More
