Robert Palmer Reload

Bildergebnis für robert palmer

It is 14 years ago Robert Palmer died on a heart attack in Paris at the age of 54. Of course too early because because sometimes I ask myself what he could made during the last decade. From his first appearance with Vinegar Joe when he replaced Jess Roden (another great voice I should feature on this place sometime) and played guitar and sung with Elkie Brooks. A band that was different to all others in the early 70's. Based on blues-rock they had a very unique sound based on both vocals. Palmer started a solo career in the 80's and had big success with a mixture of blues-rock based songs added with reggae. His songs were always present in the 80's and at every time it was possible to play one of his songs when your were DJ-ing. Just for reminding Robert Palmer, there were some songs from his career.

Rol hat gesagt…

I still miss Robert Palmer, and like you, Walter, wonder what he'd be doing now if he was still with us. He seems to have been carelessly forgotten in recent years by those who dismiss him as just the slick 80s Addicted To Love guy, but he was far more versatile and I loved much of his earlier - and later output. Plus he was born about 20 miles away from me, so he's a local lad.
