As The Wife & I come to terms with recent events, I stumbled across the blog of one of my heros – Musician, composer, producer, Funk monster & part of the funk/disco behemoth that was CHIC, Mr Nile Rogers.
‘So what ?’, you may say.
Turns out he’s been battling a particularly aggressive form of cancer since late 2010 and has been blogging about it & the effect on his life in ‘Walking on Planet C’.
We aren’t having to deal with cancer (thankfully) & while don’t think I could make that decision to blog about it, I DO applaud him for taking the step to bring the issue out into the open and FULLY respect his decision to do so.
It has also helped to make my feelings more bearable – hopefully I can be more supportive of My Wife in the times to come……
