Rod Temperton 1949 - 2016

He wrote a lot of hit songs over the years, but his most famous one, of course, is Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

I've often wondered, however, what he thought about this version -- the definitive one, in my humble opinion.

Incidentally, I just got a copy of the 1984 HBO special that it derives from -- man, that guy was funny back in the days before the steroids destroyed his sense of humor.

Turning into Jerry Lewis is a truly inspired moment. And he does't drag the bit out too long.

Just what we need after last night.

Had never seen this one before. Didn't realize Piscopo screwed himself up with steroids.
