Legendary music producer Nile Rodgers has been busy. He’s reviving his old disco band Chic and trying to stay in the forefront of technology, as technology plays such a key role in music these days. What Rodgers didn’t expect at Google’s Zeitgeist 2015 was to meet renowned cosmologist and Cambridge University professor Stephen Hawking.
Rodgers posted a photo of the two together and wrote in the caption: “I don’t have the vocabulary to explain the feelings I have at this moment.” Rodgers was either starstuck or dumbstruck after hearing Hawking’s warning about computers overtaking humans within 100 years. P.S. Rodgers will perform “I’ll Be There” with Chic on the season finale of American Idol on May 13, 8pm on Fox.
