Disco isn't Rock and Roll and most of his contributions are in the Disco genre. If there's ever a Disco Hall of Fame, though, this guy is a shoo-in.

Who is this guy?

A legend. Pure and simple. Not sure what your musical taste is and how old you are, but that is the best way for me to describe him.

For someone who made such a mark starting back in the '70s to still be relevant today, producing songs with some of the best current artists, is a remarkable achievement.

Oh, and he puts on one heck of a good show. Yes, a lot of it is his old hits. But I would challenge anyone to go to one of his shows and not leave having had a Good Time.

on Youtube. The contrast between the simple riff Bowie gave him and what Rodgers did with it is very funny.
