(Radio.com) Legendary producer and CHIC guitarist Nile Rodgers has shared that he expects to make a "100% recovery" after having cancer surgery earlier this year.

Rodgers made the revelation in a new blog post, where he explained how a bout of food poisoning while CHIC was on tour with Earth, Wind and Fire this year led to doctors finding cancer. The illness caused him to miss a CHIC show for the first time ever.

After having surgery in August, the producer said that his "prognosis is 100% recovery." Rodgers successfully battled a previous cancer diagnosis earlier this decade. Read more here.
