What is Nile Rodgers' net worth? Nile Rodgers' net worth is $40 million dollars. Born in New York, New York, Nile Rodgers began his professional career playing guitar with the Sesame Street band, and backing such artists as Maxine Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Parliament Funkadelic. Throughout the 70s, he attempted to secure a record deal with his bands, The Big Apple Band and The Boys, but he was told that no one would buy rock produced by a black band. In the 80s, after meeting Luther Vandross, and changing their name to Chic, Nile Rodgers and his band mate, Bernard Edwards, finally broke through. They scored multiple Top 10 hits with the debut album, "Chic", and went on to become two of the most successful producers in music. Nile Rodgers has produced albums, or tracks, for such artists as Sister Sledge, David Bowie, Madonna, Mick Jagger, Sheena Easton, Peter Gabriel, Cyndi Lauper, and most recently, Adam Lambert, among many, many others.
Nile Gregory Rodgers (born September 19, 1952, New York City) is an American musician, producer, composer, arranger, and guitarist.
Rodgers began his career as a session guitarist in New York, touring with the Sesame Street band in his teens, and then working in the house band at Harlem's world famous Apollo Theater, playing behind Screaming Jay Hawkins, Maxine Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ben E. King, Betty Wright, Earl Lewis and the Channels, Parliament Funkadelic, and many other legendary R&B artists.
Nile met bassist Bernard Edwards in 1970. Together they formed The Big Apple Band that backed R&B act New York City ("I'm Doing Fine Now"). The band's one hit allowed them to tour extensively, even opening for The Jackson 5 on the American leg of their first world tour in 1973. The band dissolved after their second album failed to yield a hit, but Nile and Bernard joined forces with drummer Tony Thompson, and worked and recorded as a Funk Rock band called The Boys, which played numerous gigs up and down the East Coast. Despite major label interest in their demos, they could not get a record deal when the record companies discovered they were black, as they thought that black rock artists would be too hard to promote. The band continued playing mostly local bars.
As The Big Apple Band, Rodgers and Edwards worked with Ashford & Simpson, Luther Vandross and many others. Since another New York artist, Walter Murphy, had a band also called The Big Apple Band, Rodgers and Edwards were forced to change their band's name to avoid confusion. Thus, in 1977 the band was renamed as Chic. Rodgers has stated that a major inspiration was a Roxy Music gig he saw in London: "It was a totally immersive artistic experience - the crowd were fly, the band were fly, the music was textual, they were saying 'come into my world'."
Between gigs they recorded their first album with then-boss Luther Vandross, who provided background vocals on the group's early recordings. The band score
