Nile Rodgers sleeps with his guitar.
The 62-year-old producer and guitarist revealed he still has to practise every day to be on top form, and enjoys playing the instrument in bed which means he ends up snoozing next to it.

He said: ''I think when I got my first guitar I tried to sleep with it on the very first [night] but it doesn't work. Electric guitars get very uncomfortable.''
However, the Chic musician - who premiered the group's first single in 23 years, 'I'll Be There' on BBC Radio 2 this morning - insisted if he didn't practise every day, his live show would suffer.
He told radio host Chris Evans: ''I have to. I always say that if I don't go one day without practise, I know it. If I go two days without practising, you know it.''
