Nile Rodgers is auctioning guitars for talented teenagers
Nile Rodgers, the multi-award winning music producer and guitarist, is set to offer for sale his guitars, cars and personal items to raise cash for his ‘We Are Family Foundation’.
The nonprofit organisation provides support and encourage skilled teenagers around the world. One of the guitars being auctioned is a replica of his famous Hitmaker.
Still Rodgers, who has won several Grammy awards, is not quitting with the real Hitmaker. That’s staying with him as he still plays it on stage and also on the albums he produces at London’s Abbey Road Studios, the place he is creative adviser.
Nile Rodgers has made and played with David Bowie, Diana Ross, Sister Sledge, Madonna, Duran Duran, Daft Punk, and co-founded the 70s band Chic.
The public sale of over 160 lots of guitars, cars and personal items takes place at Christie’s in New York on 16 December.
