R.I.P. Robert Palmer — I met Robert in Hamburg St. Pauli when I was playing a gig at Schmidt’s on the Spielbudenplatz Reeperbahn – he came in with his band and they were all wearing frilly tuxedo shirts, so I asked him if they were a band and he told me his name Robert Palmer, I recognized him then – this was 1997.

He was telling me he lived in Switzerland, very nice cat. I gave him one of my Late Rent CD’s to take back to Switzerland. They must have had a gig in Hamburg, reminded me of being in show band Easy Living wearing our show band uniforms in to Howard Johnson’s after the gig. Rest in peace Robert Palmer – Jon Hammond
Robert’s Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Palmer_(singer)
Birth name Robert Allen Palmer
Born 19 January 1949
Batley, West Yorkshire, England
Died 26 September 2003 (aged 54)
Paris, France
Genres Rock, pop, blue-eyed soul
Occupations Singer-songwriter
Instrumentalist
Record producer
Instruments Vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass guitar, drums
Years active 1964–2003
Labels Island, EMI
Associated acts The Power Station, Vinegar Joe, Andy Taylor, John Taylor, Duran Duran
1964–1973: Early bands

Palmer’s father was an English naval intelligence officer stationed in Malta. Palmer moved with his family to Scarborough, Yorkshire in 1959. Influenced as a child by blues, soul and jazz music on American Forces Radio, Robert Palmer joined his first band, The Mandrakes, at the age of 15 while still at Scarborough Boys’ High School. His first major break came with the departure of singer Jess Roden from the band The Alan Bown Set in 1969, after which Palmer was invited to London to sing on their single “Gypsy Girl”.[5] The vocals for the album The Alan Bown Set!, originally recorded by Roden (and released in the US that way), were re-recorded by Palmer after the success of the single. According to music journalist Paul Lester, Palmer rose from northern clubs in England to become “elegant and sophisticated” and the master of several styles.[6]
In 1970, Palmer joined the 12-piece jazz-rock fusion band Dada, which featured singer Elkie Brooks. The band lasted a year, after which Brooks and Palmer formed the critically acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful rhythm and blues group, Vinegar Joe; Palmer sang and played rhythm guitar. Signed to the Island Records label, they released three albums: Vinegar Joe (1972), Rock ‘n’ Roll Gypsies (1972) and Six Star General (1973), before disbanding in March 1974
1974–1984: Early solo career..
