Disco legend Nile Rodgers on his lifetime of hits

Nile Rodgers is the disco legend who changed the course of modern music.

The Chic track “Good Times” that he co-wrote has alone been sampled more than 200 times and sparked the advent of hip hop.

He grew up in New York but is spending lots of time in Britain curating the Meltdown Festival at London’s Southbank Centre next month.

He’s chosen the artists and is performing himself across nine days of performances.

We went to meet him at Abbey Road Studios where he’s become the first ever chief creative adviser.
