"It was against this conflicted backdrop that (Nile) Rodgers found himself out one night, club hopping with Queen bassist John Deacon. He and Deacon wandered from the clubs straight to the Power Station, a Manhattan recording studio, where the band (Chic) were working on their third album, "Risque'"."
