Today's Quick Look Back

Walking on Planet C

Today's Quick Look Back

A Quick Look Back at Being with Ashford & Simpson on stage

I've always appreciated this gift called life, but sometimes I've taken it for granted. I've been clinically dead many times from drug overdoses but doctors have always brought me Back.

About a year ago, I was attacked by cancer. I started writing about my life everyday because I appreciated it even more now.

I don't want to live in the past - but it's a nice place to visit. My motto is, "Look Back, but don't stare!" This is just Today's Quick Look Back.

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.
