My Guitar Tonight

Walking on Planet C

My Guitar Tonight


My guitar tonight

My Dear e-Family, I love you all very much. Your thoughts, prayers and guidance are key to helping me fight my ongoing cancer battles, but I've been away from My practice Guitar for two weeks. It's an Epiphone ES-295 that sat on the stage of the Broadway musical "Grease" as a prop - until I snagged it. I love it too and I've really missed it. I'll be back up to speed with the blog tomorrow but all I want to do is play My Guitar Tonight.

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
