Johnny Marr at Nile Rodgers’ Meltdown

The legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist Johnny Marr delivered a hugely popular performance at Southbank Centre as part of Nile Rodgers’ Meltdown festival.

Before Marr went on stage we grabbed a few minutes of his time to talk about the influence of Nile Rodgers and Chic, and what performing on the Royal Festival Hall stage means to him. 

This short video interview includes footage of Marr’s Meltdown performance.
