Thanks to Daft Punk's new single Get Lucky which features Chic's legendary guitarist, Nile Rodgers is back! He never went away in my opinion, but it's lovely to hear his soulful, sophisticated chords making the rounds again. Gigslutz gives you a little of his history including this one: "A little fact about ‘Le Freak’ for you; it was written initially as a slate against the doormen at Studio 54 after Rodgers and Edwards were refused entry on a night when they had planned to meet Grace Jones there. Originally the chorus went ‘aaaaaahhhhhh, fuck off” and it wasn’t meant to be a single. It was eventually released and ended up selling 6 million copies in the process becoming Warners’ biggest ever single." MORE: GIGSLUTZ
