The highlight of The International Music Summit (IMS) 2014 was the impromptu performance of four musical giants, at the IMS Legend’s Dinner in honour of Chic’s Nile Rodgers. Nile was joined on stage by Nona Hendryx best known for her collaboration with Patti LaBelle, Talking Heads, Bill Laswell, and Bootsy Collins. Also on stage Funkadelic and Parliament of Funks George Clinton was asked to take lead but the biggest surprise of the night was Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon flying out that night making an appearance, much to Nile’s shock and surprise. These 4 colossuses played renditions of Sister Sledge’s We are Family and Le Freak by Chic.

The sonic blue 1960’s Fender Stratocaster played by Nile on Stage was then donated to the IMS’s official charity The Hepatitis C Trust. The guitar was then signed by Nile, Simon Le Bon and George Clinton making it one of the most unique Fender Stratocaster’s in musical history.

The Hepatitis C Trust is particularly close to Nile Rogers heart as both his parents had the disease so he knows first-hand the harm caused by the disease. The guitar will be sold online on eBay. Click here for the link to the auction, which will be available to fans to bid on all over the world.
