ADY CRAMPTON CHATS TO THE STARS

Robert Cotter

March 18, 2021

New York City was rightly acknowledged to be the disco epicentre of the world in the mid-70s with local talent bubbling beneath as well as above the surface. The Big Apple Band, featuring Robert Cotter, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards was one such group that deserved far more exposure than they received, if only for their original version of Saturday, made more famous by Norma Jean Wright.

When the Big Apple Band split in 1976, Bernard and Nile formed Chic, and Robert persued a solo career creating the highly sought after albums MIssing You (1978), and Timeless (1980)

Here Robert chats about his life in the industry and his excitement at the re-release of ‘Missing You’ through WeWantSounds records, which launches on April 9th
