ARC Boardmember (Almost) Looses his Cool (Guitar)

18 10 2013

hitmaker3ARC board member Nile Rodgers had a close call last week when he nearly lost his beloved 1959 Stratocaster on the Metro-North railroad.

The guitar has been nicknamed the “Hitmaker” due to the number of hit records (“Good Times,” “We Are Family.” Bowie’s “Let’s Dance.” and most recently this summer’s hit with Daft Punk, ” Get Lucky.” )  it has been played on.

Rodgers is currently having a replica of the guitar made, so perhaps he will consider donating the original to the archive where it will be preserved and he will never have to go through an ordeal like this again!
