TV Times - - Saturday -

Some of the many hits Nile has had a hand in over the last 40 years in­clude David Bowie’s Let’s Dance and Daft Punk’s Get Lucky.

Nile, 66, says he was once a mem­ber of the Harlem chap­ter of the Black Pan­ther party, ‘I was sec­tion leader. I moved up in rank rather quickly be­cause I was a mar­tial artist’.

New York-born Nile made his name in disco band Chic. His gui­tar nick­named ‘The Hit­maker’ is said to have ap­peared on records with total sales of around £1.3 bil­lion.
