Nile Rodgers Cancer Free

(Gibson) Legendary guitarist and producer Nile Rodgers has wrote on a blog post that he is winning his battle against cancer. The Chic guitarist/mastermind was diagnosed in October 2010, but admits he still faces a long road to recovery.

Rodgers, 58, blogged: "It was rainy and warm as I went to see my doctors for the second straight day. Though I'm now Cancer Free, my post operative symptoms require a huge amount of recuperative therapy." Rodgers has declined to say what form of cancer he has been suffering from.

The funk guitarist /producer who has written or overseen a huge amount of floor-filling hits including Chic's "Le Freak," "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge, "Remember The Time" by Michael Jackson and "Material Girl" by Madonna compared the disease to "jaws savagely eating me from the inside out." more on this story
