“To me, records are the same as films. Every time I make a record, I’m actually making a holistic story about the way I see the world whether it is a the world as I see it now or as a period of time.”

Nile Rodgers opens up to Strombo about turning down Miles Davis, working with the Black Panther Party, the story behind Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” the last conversations that he shared with Prince, his time panhandling, his parents’ heroin addiction, his fandom of John Coltrane, his work on Emeli Sande’s new record, what Madonna was best at, how Hendrix was their pack leader and so much more.
