    Song writer Rod Temperton dies

    Incredibly sad news.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-37565125

    This is just a selection of the fantastic tracks Rod wrote or co-wrote:

    For Heatwave-
    • Boogie Nights
    • Always and Forever
    • The Groove Line


    George Benson -
    • Give me the Night
    • Love X Love
    • Star of a Story


    Michael Jackson-
    • Off the Wall
    • Rock with you
    • Thriller


    He also wrote for The Brothers Johnson, Aretha Franklin, Herbie Hancock, Karen Carpenter, Quincy Jones, Anita Baker, Rufus, Michael McDonald - the list goes on.

    He was an unassuming white guy from a small town in Northern England and he had so much talent and so much soul.

    RIP Rod and thank you for some fantastic music.

    2016 continues its efforts to be a truly crap year in as many ways as possible.

    Aweeeeee. I have a lot of musician friends on FB. I'm surprised they haven't posted this.
