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.
