Nile Rodgers fighting cancer with new music projects!

Postby CNB » Tue Apr 30, 2013 2:43 pm

"My mind and body only require a few hours sleep a night to function at full capacity. The greatest benefit I receive from this natural quirk, is I get to pack so much life into a day.

When cancer viciously attacked my body a little over two years ago, I decided to consciously live my life to the fullest because I couldn't control the outcome of the medical treatment. It was also the best component could add to my therapy.

I never give medical advice because as my doctors said to me "Treatments and outcomes are so personal you must live or die with your own decisions." So I decided to create as much music and live as much life as I could in what ever time I have left on this planet.

It's approaching check up time and I always get nervous walking into the great unknown. Cancer has come after me once but failed to take me out. Statistically speaking, it's trying to figure out another way to get me. It's a persistant predator.

But the creative juices are flowing and that keeps me going. So for today, I'm working on many projects with Some Talented People."

I have to admire that :bigups:
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

~Sleep in peace old friend for me you'll never die~

He is finally getting his groove back as well. This song with Daft Punk is the first hit he's played on since 1989!

Apart from working on a couple of Freddie's tracks for their '92 release, he obviously heavily influenced John Deacon, as Back Chat is written in exactly the funk/disco style that Nile Rodgers and Bernie Edwards invented.

Well, I guess the hits will end with Daft Punk. :lol: :lol: :lol:

BTW It looks like Adam is reading the lyrics on his cell phone, so I'm not expecting this to be anything special. It's probably just them fooling around in the studio.

He's probably singing the new Daft Punk song. :lol: :lol:

Nile's collaboration with Adam is like his collaboration with All-4-One. :lol: :lol: :lol:

No!! And it IS a shock, as they were a major influence in the late 1970s. Duran Duran cites the band as having a lot of influence on how they developed their sound (and Nile helped create one of their biggest hits, "The Reflex"). One of these days! Sadly it won't be this year.
