Nile Rodgers and Mark Ronson both worked on the album, but there was a lesser known producer who was the unsung hero of the new Duran Duran album.
He also speaks about the upcoming Chic album, his Freak Out Let’s Dance festival, his love for the Country Music Hall of Fame, and that time he produced Bob Dylan covering Johnny Cash.
