Robert Palmer dies of a heart attack (news.bbc.co.uk)

You'll probably know him for his biggest hit, Addicted To Love. Died aged 54.

Damn, I just heard this on the radio. I am upset and sad now. He had a great voice and his music videos were great as well. RIP

Just heard myself. What a shame, he had a unique sound, and since no one ever bothered to imitate it, it's probably good as gone now.

He did some cool stuff in the 80s and 90s, including a cover of Devo's "Girl U Want" in the 90s that I liked a lot despite the fact he got about 75% of the lyrics wrong.

I think the first Robert Palmer album I got was "Secrets" back in 1979. Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor) was an awesome tune that almost everybody knows. But it also had tunes like "In Walks Love Again" and "Jealous" that were outstanding. That caused me to go back and get "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley," his first album. "Every Kinda People," was memorable for me as well. Most of the board, I am guessing, will remember him for "Simply Irresistible," and maybe the Power Station stuff with the Durans, but for me, his older stuff really worked. He was kind of in that blue-eyed soul kind of vein when he started out and that I really dug.

No CD collection is complete without "Sneaking Sally through the Alley" - but my all-time favorite tune of his is his cover of "Pressure Drop" - if I'm not mistaken, Lowell George was still with him at that point.

I've got "Double Fun" out in my car and will have to listen to it on my way home.

O irony, that his latest album cover is an image of him holding a cigarette with the album title designed as the smoke, even. The price you pay to look glamorous. (And he always did look very very glamorous.) :'(

Tho I'd heard "Doctor Doctor" quite a few times before (but had no idea who sang it), my first introduction to Robert Palmer proper was the Power Station.

The reason I didn't beg beg beg my parents to drive me to Louisville for their concert was the fact that he didn't tour with them (Michael Des Barres [SP?] took his place on tour). Their appearance on Miami Vice w/Des Barres validated my fears. Yikes.

All the best to his family and fans.

It seems like we're losing "celebrities" every week or even every few days now doesn't it? With pop culture as prevalent as it has become, we're going to start seeing these on a daily basis in the years to come.

Geez, one of these days former "internet celebrities" will probably even make a ripple on the national conscious when they pass.

Didn't this already happen when the WrestleCrap guy committed suicide a few years back?

Well, one of them did...

Q: Who created WrestleCrap.com?
A: The site was the brainchild of two men, "Real Deal" RD Reynolds and the "Worldwide Menace", Merle Vincent.

Q: I see the "Real Deal" on the site all the time, but where is Merle?
A: Sadly, Merle passed away in September 2000. I still miss my friend, and think of him every day.

The Power Station's one and only album still remains a favorite of mine. I think it's the drums that I love so much.
Take a listen to "Murderess" or "Bang a Gong".
I remember it, but I can't believe they toured without Robert Palmer.
That would be like Audioslave touring without Chris Cornell.

They had another CD called Living in Fear that was released in 1996. Pretty good CD.


Audioslave did tour without Chris Cornell, they called themselves Rage against the Machine.

"Audioslave did tour without Chris Cornell, they called themselves Rage against the Machine."

I knew I was setting myself up when I chose that example....

Reminds me of a Billy Crystal quote (quoting his daugther)
"Dad, was Paul McCartney ever in a band before Wings?"
