My Last Few Killer Days

I did so much that I feel that I need to share some more pictures and music with you. ~ NR

Coming home from a great meeting with Broadway theater man Albert Nocciolino - We met about both my shows

This is an exciting period of my life. Though cancer's aftermath makes everyday life difficult, I keep moving forward. Music gives me the strength to pull it together and do my job no matter what. And even if my daily responsibilities are not music oriented, I act as if they are and call upon that musical strength.

In the last two weeks I've performed with some of my favorite artists, received an honorary doctorate from the prestigious Drexel University, and directly afterward flew to London, performed that day, got fitted for a white three piece suit around midnight, and flew back home and to do a movie, and then I'm meeting with the CEO of NAC Entertainment, who's one of the biggest producers on Broadway.

The following pictures will give you a glimpse at My Last Few Killer Days.

 


This is an exciting period in my life - Here I'm preparing to receive an Honorary Doctorate from prestigious Drexel University


I did a film on funk with Nelson George today at my NYC apartment. I've know him since the 1st CHIC album


Music gives me the strength to pull it together and do my job no matter what


In the last two weeks I've performed with some of my favorite artists, like Johnny Marr from the Smiths


Me and Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips at Parklife in Manchester


Directly after my commencement speech, I flew directly to London


CHIC LOVEBOX TENT


Sam Sparrow (co-writer of Adam Lambert's "Shady" that I played on) and me in the tent


Chaka, Grace, and me cracking up big-time in Grace's dressing room


Group shot of Incognito, CHIC, and Chaka Khan - Chaka looks SCARY FINE!


Grace in fierce Head Gear


Then she takes the head gear off


Then we performed...


And performed some more


Then came the "Good Times" bum rush


And chaos, which we love


Followed by more chaos, which we love too!


Which built up to full fledged revolution


After the show I was fitted by Mark Wesley "Earl of Bedlam" for one of my latest white suits


I'm shooting a documentary with Nelson George


Jamming at Parklife!


Grace taking the stage for her 3rd number


Grace performed this enitre song on one leg
