We all know of Shorty Rogers (1924 - 1994), who composed for The Partridge Family. He wrote "Together, Havin' a Ball" among other things. I just read that his son Michael died.

The following is quoted from the 06/03/05 front page of

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/

Michael Rogers died on April 25th, 2005 in Los Angeles at the age of 55. The son of jazz bandleader Shorty Rogers, he began his career in music as a drummer for L.A. bands in the 1960s before working as a copyist at Columbia Pictures Music in the 70s, for such shows as Police Story and Police Woman. He became head of Universal's music library in 1981, involved in music preparation and licensing, and continued at MCA Music as director of clearance. Donations in his memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
