Airport Sheraton Hotel in Frankfurt


Airport Sheraton Hotel in Frankfurt

I am so disappointed. In yesterday's blog I gave a detailed account of what the next two days of my life were going to be like. I presented it as fact. My plans were crystal clear because they'd been scheduled for months.

When this blog goes out today, I don't know where in the world I'll be. I'm setting it to go out in advance and I'm hoping to be over the North Sea, but it's supposed to snow in Germany which is where I am at the moment of me writing this.

I'm still here because today was the first major snowfall of the year in Europe and it changed my perfect plans completely. The only thing that I'll present as fact today is: I spent last night in the Airport Sheraton Hotel in Frankfurt.

 


We got checked into Bremen Airport in no time at all. A few moments later they told us the flight was delayed two hours

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.
