Producer David Bendeth is known for his top-charting work with Breaking Benjamin, Underoath, In Flames, As I Lay Dying and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. From his studio in New Jersey he told Noisecreep his thoughts about the passing of Michael Jackson.

"The first time I heard "Rock With You," I was completely amazed at the song, the vocal performance and the musicianship. 'Off the Wall' was one of the best R&B records ever made for me. It changed my whole idea of production. Michael will really be missed."

Michael Jackson died Thursday in Los Angeles, at the age of 50.
