So it seems a good time to revisit ‘Le Freak’, Nile’s 2011 memoir (and it accords nicely with my current early-’80s NYC obsession). The Chic years (they take a while to make it) are dealt with much more briskly than I thought they would be, though with the bands story tied inextricably to the timeline of disco, Rodgers covers this time well (enjoying the excesses that were there, whilst being astonished that he was responsible for a significant part of it - the Rappers Delight business, for instance, is both amusing and surprising).

Too many times, one or the other was doing something that had me turned on my side laughing to tears. Today’s pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created.He settled on learning the guitar after failing to bluff his way into a band, feeling he now had "something to prove," though his initial studies were a rocky road, with a friend having to point out that he should not tune guitar strings like those of a violin if h

But perhaps the most well-known book on the list, the one that every single musician should read at some point in their lives, is Chronicles: Volume 1 by Bob Dylan.

At the age of 13 he was already sniffing glue and had been turned on to acid by Timothy Leary himself.That and a whole lot more, actually, and the charmed if drug-fueled life he led as he produced hit after hit for the Material Girl as well as Diana Ross, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, the B-52s, Duran Duran and countless others is the heart of this book. Rodgers and Edwards regarded Chic as a rock band for a multicultural disco movement that made good on hippie peace, love and freedom. I was really looking forward to reading Rodgers’ autobiography and about his experiences working in the music industry particularly during that time. He changed disco, funk and perhaps even rap and helped them to infuse the music that came afterwards.
