Nile Rodgers Felt He'd Been 'struck By Lightning Twice' When Prince Died


Nile Rodgers Prince

Nile Rodgers felt he'd been ''struck by lightning twice'' when Prince died.

The 64-year-old artist has admitted he was deeply wounded when he heard the news the 'Purple Rain' hitmaker had died in April this year, although it inspired the title of his album titled 'It's About Time'.

Speaking on his website NileRodgers.com, he said: ''When Prince suddenly died, it was like I'd been struck by lightning twice. It made me ''see'' why I named the next CHIC album ''It's About Time.'' Time is so important, and what we do with it is everything.

Nile Rodgers Given Cancer All Clear, But He Remains Realistic


Nile Rodgers Daft Punk Pharrell Williams

Nile Rodgers is an experienced man; the musician, producer, composer, arranger, and guitarist has collaborated with a whole host of artists in his ranging career, from Diana Ross to David Bowie, from Madonna to Daft Punk. This guy knows a thing or two when it comes to life, so you’ll excuse him for being a realist, won’t you?

The legendary guitarist showed his glee at being given the all clear from cancer, Tweeting, "Instead of showing gross internal video I'll show my doctor's fly examination room. I'M ALL CLEAR AGAIN."

But the funky guy wasn’t ready to count his chickens. "I never celebrate much when I get an All Clear because in 6 months I'll go through the same drama." He added: "All clear is a lot better than the cancer has returned and it's spread."

Like The Legend Of The Phoenix, Daft Punk Climb To The Top Of The UK Singles Chart


Daft Punk Nile Rodgers Pharrell Williams

Daft Punk's infectious comeback single 'Get Lucky' has shot to the top of the UK Singles Chart over the weekend, with the Pharrell Williams and Nile Rogers-featuring track scoring a first number one hit for the French duo this side of the English Chanel. The reincarnated French maestro's chart success comes eight years since their last chart entry, and is their highest position to date, with their previous best effort 'One More Time' reaching the number two spot in 2000.

It only took a week for the foot-tapping disco-revival track to climb to the top of the charts, with the single entring the chart at number three last wek despite only being available for little over 24-hours. During that 24-hour gap, Spotify announced that 'Get Lucky' had become the most streamed song in the UK and the US over a 24-hour period in the company's five-year history. The streaming service predicts that the band's comeback album, Random Access Memories, will mirror this anticipation and turn out to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, streams of the year when it is released on 20 May (UK).
