Rod Temperton, the UK's most successful songwriter after Paul McCartney, has died in London aged 66. His hit songs include Thriller, Off the Wall, Rock With You, Give Me The Night, Sweet Freedom, Boogie Nights and Always and Forever. An amazing talent.

Oh the memories. Those of us in the UK will remember Heatwave and Johnny Wilder too.
