Nile Rodgers Thanks Michael Jackson
Music legend Nile Rodgers has come out to say that it was because of Michael Jackson that he re-entered the music business in the 1990s, after the King of Pop invited him to work on the 1995 ‘HIStory’ album.
The Chic legend says that without the encouragement from Michael and the opportunity to work on Michael’s smash hit album, he wouldn’t have returned to the industry after disbanding his group Chic in 1983.
Rodgers, who played on Michael’s song ‘Money,’ said;
“24 years ago when I’d stopped playing music for around eight months, I got a call from Michael Jackson to come down to the studio and work with him on his album ‘HIStory’. He was a good friend at the time and it thanks to him that I got back into the music industry.”
Nile Rodgers & Chic are back with their first album in 26 years called ‘It’s About Time,’ which will be released on September 7th. The new record will feature collaborations with Blondie, Bruno Mars and Craig David.
