THE word legend is bandied about far too easily these days - but Nile Rodgers is right up there and widely recognised as one of the most influential producers in the history of popular music.

As well as being the mastermind behind his own band Chic and disco classics like Good Times, I Want Your Love, Le Freak and Everybody Dance, he has produced a host of Sister Sledge anthems, and went on to produce albums like Diana Ross' Upside Down, David Bowie's Let's Dance and Madonna's Like A Virgin, plus Duran Duran's singles The Reflex and Wild Boys and their album Notorious.

Originally a session guitarist playing live in the early 1970s with soul stars Aretha Franklin and Ben E King, Nile's trademark sound went on to shape a generation.

He plays a one-off London gig at The Forum in Kentish Town on Friday and the Recorder has two pairs of tickets to give away.
