The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2013 ballot is out, and disco icons Donna Summer and Chic are both up for induction this year. Of course, “rock” fans have a complicated history with disco, although Chic’s Nile Rodgers has produced albums for rock icons including Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Bruce Springsteen, meanwhile, thought enough of Donna Summer to write “Protection” for her.
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. So, it’s no surprise that he has a lot of famous friends, many of whom sent him video or voicemail messages to celebrate his 60th birthday.
