    Producer Nile Rodgers has revealed he is battling cancer. Rodgers announced on his blog that he is fighting "aggressive" cancer and gives a lengthy, detailed recap of the past few months of his life. Oh no! Nile, you are in our thoughts and our prayers.

    Rodgers is best known as a co-founder of Chic, but also co-wrote and produced a number of hits with other acts, including David Bowie's "Let's Dance," Sister Sledge's "We Are Family," The B-52's "Love Shack" and some of Madonna's '80s classics, such as "Material Girl" and "Like a Virgin."
