NEW YORK: Nile Rodgers survives on only two or three hours sleep a night. The 60-year-old musician went to a sleep clinic when he was five years old to be treated for what doctors then thought was insomnia. However, the medics soon realised young Nile was not sleep deprived at all but in fact ‘’very aware’’. Nile told BANG Showbiz: ‘’I only sleep two to three hours a night, maybe if I’m exhausted I’ll sleep four, and the rare occasion I sleep five. I feel like Rip Van Winkle. I just don’t sleep, I don’t need it - I’ve never needed it. I function very well, I’m 60-years-old and I feel great.’’–EX
