Nile Gregory Rodgers (born September 19, 1952) is an American musician, producer, composer, arranger, and guitarist. He’s the lead guitarist and co-founding member with Bernard Edwards of the group Chic, that has been active since 1976.
Between gigs they recorded their very first album with then-manager Luther Vandross, who provided background vocals on the group’s early records. The group scored numerous top ten hits and helped propel disco to new levels of popularity. Chic’s chart-topping songs “Le Freak”, “I Want Your Love”, “Everybody Dance”, “Dance, Dance, Dance”, “My Forbidden Lover”, and “Good Times” became club/pop/R&B standards. “Le Freak” was composed after being turned away from Studio 54, after being invited by Grace Jones. “Le Freak” is Atlantic Records’ only triple platinum selling single and “Good Times” shot to the No. 1 position in spite of the “Disco Sucks” backlash in 1979. The success of Chic’s first singles led Atlantic to offer Rodgers and Edwards the opportunity to make any act on its roster. They selected Sister Sledge, whose 1978 record, We Are Family, peaked at No. 3 and stayed on the charts well into 1979. The initial two singles, “He Is the Greatest Dancer” and the title cut “We’re Family” both reached No. 1 on the R&B chart, and No. 6 and No. 2, respectively on the Pop chart. “He is the Greatest Dancer” was sampled in 1998 on Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”.
