WESTPORT, Conn. -- Grammy-winning recording artist Nile Rodgers of Westport is just one of the hundreds of musicians who worked with the late David Bowie during his multidecade career, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Rodgers, who worked with Bowie on the hugely successful album "Let’s Dance" and its famous title track, told the magazine that working with Bowie “basically bought me back to life” professionally, said Entertainment Weekly.

Before "Let's Dance," Rodgers said he had six flops in a row, and no one was interested in working with him. He said that all changed when he worked with Bowie, added Entertainment Weekly.
