Join us in wishing a Happy Birthday to the man behind many dancefloor-filling smash hits, the legendary guitarist Mr. NILE RODGERS, born September 19, 1952 is an American guitarist, songwriter, musician, composer, arranger and record producer. He is the lead guitarist and co-founding member with Bernard Edwards of the band CHIC, which has been active since 1976 and was one of the most successful groups of the disco era. He is famed for his "chucking" rhythm guitar style. Although he recorded three solo albums during the 1980s and 1990s, and one as part of the short-lived group Outloud, Rodgers has found more success in collaboration as producer and performer with many artists including Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Duran Duran, Madonna, Britney Spears, and more recently, Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Pitbull, Lady Gaga, Sigala, Keith Urban and many more. On April 7, 2017, Rodgers was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received an Award for Musical Excellence. In 2015 he won Grammy Hall of Fame for CHIC’s “Le Freak”, in 2016 Rodgers Inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame. Chic's chart-topping songs "Le Freak", "I Want Your Love", and "Good Times" became club/pop/R&B standards. Early in this decade he also produced projects for David Bowie, Eric Clapton, David Lee Roth, Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many other artists. In recent years, he has continued to collaborate with an array of musicians including his 2014 three-time Grammy Award-winning collaboration with Daft Punk, Avicii, Disclosure and Sam Smith among many others. His advanced knowledge of jazz chord inversions gave Rodgers a significant harmonic edge over many of his R&B counterparts, and he soon became one of the most in-demand rhythm guitar players and producers in pop music. 🎂🎸

Perhaps it's because we know ourselves behind the weirdness.
👽
We are not the weirdness we are the ones witnessing the weirdness.

The soul behind the identifying qualities. 🌐
I don't think dogs think bringing a dog is weird do you? 😁
