  • “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin” is the opening track for Michael Jackson’s sixth studio album “Thriller” in 1982. The song was such a commercial success that it topped the music charts in several countries and has been covered and sampled by multiple recording artists since its release. Having Jonathan Moffett in our studio to perform Michael’s hit tunes was a very special occasion and we hope you enjoy this performance.

      @John D and the trick of knowing when to play a little behind. Or right on top or a little ahead. The mark of a great drummer. That and the other thousand things you need to have locked in. Ugh. Now I have a headache.

    He is amazing. What everybody here seems to forget he started playing before drum tracks were a thing so those fancy beats had to be created and played before somebody could digitize them for drum tracks. His generation was there for all of that.

      Gotta love people that go ahead and start presenting their ignorant, misguided opinion as fact whilst having absolutely no idea what they're talking about. What's the point of saying anything at all then? Like the guy above said, it's a Linndrum drum machine. And there were instrumental tracks a few decades before albeit a little more cumbersome on reel to reel.

    Wanna be starting something is the ultimate Michael Jackson song. It’s got all Jackson-isms in it, the hee-hee, the shumon-a , a crazy bass line , insane lyrics , mikes delivery on the song is like a fast machine lyrical spit , and the end of the song with the song along chant and Mike just screaming and wailing and going off it’s incredible my favorite Jackson song ever

    Those A Custom hi hats and the work he’s doing on them is soooo good! They are so bright and sharp, cutting through the beat while not being too heavy sounding like K Customs can be sometimes. It all depends upon the sound of the whole kit and the pitch of the music you’re playing with. The man is literally so in the pocket that you don’t realize he’s actually playing with the music. It’s THAT CLEAN! 🤝
