Nile Rodgers Has Eleven TVs On 24/7 At His Home

If you've been working from home during the coronavirus pandemic chances are you'll have seen your electricity bill creep up. But spare a thought for Nile Rodgers because he has 11 televisions switched on '24 hours a day'.

The legendary musician explained how he has them on in a bid to boost his creativity by providing him with a distraction.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, the 68-year-old even revealed that the company providing his electricity have even told him he has 'the most TVs in one house of anyone they've ever known'.

Rodgers told the publication: "Music is at the heart of everything I do and it never leaves my day. I think in music, not words, and I have this hyperactive music machine for a brain, which is a blessing and curse.

"It's always composing, but don't get me wrong: it's not always good stuff. Most of it is ridiculous stuff but, boy, does it have me interested."

He went on to add: "I need a distraction to narrow my focus, so I have televisions switched on all over my house 24 hours a day, creating a white noise in the background.

"The cable company says I have the most TVs in one house - it's 11 right now - of anyone they've ever known, but I just can't function without that distraction."

So how does he chill out? By going on holiday apparently: "Some people's days wind down gradually, but I've never been like that. I take vacations to relax - or holidays as you chaps say - but my day only slows down by accident.

"I might just fall asleep by accident, but usually, even after I've eaten - more of yesterday's increasingly delicious leftovers - I'll be answering emails or indulging in my only hobby, which is practising my guitar, which people might be surprised that I still need to do.

"My head never hits the pillow at a set time as I'll always be trying to clear tomorrow's email backlog today while the bedroom TV is on and set to the same decibel level as Concorde. I always fall asleep with the TV on, only to wake the next morning when I just laugh and think to myself: 'Jesus, how the hell did I sleep through that?'"

Ultimately, he's always in work-mode, and continued: "Music is at the heart of everything I do and it never leaves my day. I think in music, not words, and I have this hyperactive music machine for a brain, which is a blessing and curse.

"It's always composing, but don't get me wrong: it's not always good stuff. Most of it is ridiculous stuff but, boy, does it have me interested."
