Nile Rodgers has defended his decision to work with David Guetta.

The legendary guitarist/producer has teamed up with the maligned French DJ to work on a brand new Chic track. However, the news of this collaboration has upset some of Rodgers' fans and followers.

Responding to tweets about working with Guttea on the track, Rodgers replied:



Last week, Nile Rodgers revealed that he almost lost his iconic Hitmaker guitar. The funk icon played his white 1959 Fender Stratocaster, known as The Hitmaker, on some of the biggest-selling albums of all time by artists from David Bowie to Madonna and Diana Ross. The total value of music to have been played through the instrument was once valued at $2 billion (£1.3 billion).

Nile Rodgers recently announced that he was working with UK dance duo Disclosure.
