I'm Headed Back Home

Walking on Planet C

I'm Headed Back Home

I'm headed back home

Today I leave England to head back home for a few days. Soon, I'll be going on tour with Seal, Alison Moyet, and Stanfour.

We'll be performing in Germany, doing Aida - Night of the Proms. I've played with the Night of the Proms Orchestra before, they feel like family, in fact, they are featured at the end of my Video Bio Clip.

I've traveled extensively since I was a child and like to think of myself as a world citizen. Since I was attacked by cancer last year and started this blog, I feel even closer to people around the world. Regardless of where I'm going I always feel like I'm Headed Back Home.

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.
