Robert Palmer 1949-2003


September's shaping up to be a sad month. First Warren, then Johnny. Now Robert.

Palmer's first album Sneakin Sally Through The Alley was quite infectious with it's syncopated sound influenced by Little Feat's backing musicians.

Here's a video obit from The Feedroom with a video clip of the ubiquitous "Addicted To Love".

Michelle at A Small Victory: The Gentle Art of Making Enemies writes on Blogcritics:

"For those who know only of Palmers post 1985 efforts, it would be worth your while to check out his earlier stuff and to realize that the man was more than a video star with catchy riffs."

Interesting comment's on Palmer's career follow Michele's chronology. From Eric Olsen:

"His '80s hit period is also extremely appealing - the image he crafted of the jaded Euro-sophisticate sort of took the Bryan Ferry image to its furthest extension."
