Nile Rodgers Gets The Best Birthday Card Ever

Nile Rodgers is a well-liked guy. As the leader of Chic, he’s responsible for some of the biggest hit singles ever, including “Le Freak” and “Good Times.” And as a producer, he’s helmed records by Madonna, David Bowie, David Lee Roth and Mick Jagger.

JACK’s Inside Track: Soundgarden

Good to see Chris Cornell hasn’t lost his patented Banshee Wail–thought those years of non-Soundgarden “acoustic-ness” might’ve depleted it without the proper use. Glad to hear that I was WRONG!
