This is truly one of the best books ever written about art, music, life, and the way we grow to be exactly who we are. Actually, one of the best books period.
Le Freak Written by Nile Rodgers. But before he reinvented pop music, Nile Rodgers invented himself. He was born into a mixed-race, bicoastal family of dope-fiend bohemians who taught him everything he needed to know about love, loss, fashion, art, music, and the subversive power of underground culture.

The stars of the scene were his glamorous teenage mom and heroin-addicted Jewish stepfather, but there were also monkeys, voodoo orishas, jazz cats, and serial killers in the mix. By the time he was sixteen, Nile was on his own, busking through the sixties, half-hippie and half—Black Panther. And then one night, he discovered disco. Le Freak has plenty of sex and drugs.
Rodgers gave those dreams a beat—and helped invent pop as we know it today.
Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny
Le Freak does all that and much more. This is truly one of the best books ever written about art, music, life, and the way we grow to be exactly who we are.
Actually, one of the best books period. His legacy as a funk-rock visionary is assured, and his autobiography serves as further proof that disco does not suck. But far from being a succession of name-dropping anecdotes, this autobiography is a wonderfully funny, moving and wise reflection upon the important things in life: the people you love and the things you create.
His storytelling skills propel the reader through the book, making the ending all the more jarring.
