Legends of Disco 40 Stars Discuss Their Careers by James Arena

In this candid retrospective of the disco era, 40 men and women who reigned over the dance music industry of the 1970s and 1980s recall their lives and careers before, during and after the genre's explosion. Artists interviewed include Alfa Anderson, formerly of Chic; Ed Cermanski and Robert Upchurch of The Trammps; Sarah Dash; producer John Davis; Janice Marie Johnson of A Taste of Honey; France Joli; Denis LePage of Lime; Randy Jones of the Village People; Studio 54 DJ Robbie Leslie; Rob Parissi of Wild Cherry; Bonnie Pointer; producer Warren Schatz; Debbie, Joni and Kim Sledge of Sister Sledge; and many more.


James Arena's passion for capturing the history of disco is not only interesting to discover, but a worthwhile discovery of all the artists who created all those 'good times.' --Edge Media Network.
