Born September 19, in New York, New York, Rodgers clearly possessed exceptional musical talent early on, and by the age of 19, he was playing guitar as part of the house band for the world-famous Apollo Theatre alongside the likes of Aretha Franklin and Funkadelic. He was probably the lone member of the Sesame Street house band with a prior Black Panther Party affiliation. Rodgers soon grew tired of his status as a backup musician, however, and sought to put together a band of his own. So with Chic no longer occupying most of his time, Rodgers was free to focus solely on working with others.
