Rod Temperton, best known for writing Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and ‘Rock With You’ has died.

Temperton died at the age of 66 after “a brief aggressive battle with cancer.” In light of his low profile, Temperton has been known for his nickname “The Invisible Man” and his private funeral has already taken place.

Here are some of the hits that Temperton wrote:

  • Thriller – Michael Jackson
  • Rock With You – Michael Jackson
  • Boogie Nights – Heatwave
  • Give Me The Night – George Benson
  • Baby, Come to Me – Patti Austin and James Ingram
  • Sweet Freedom – Michael McDonald

We send our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends, and fans at this difficult time.
