Sharp dressed 80s icon, Robert Palmer is dead. Heard it first from the radio station I was listening to when the DJ paid tribute to the late singer by announcing his recent demise and played the live version of Bad Case Of Loving You. Those who grew up in the 80s would remember him as the powah behind the Duran Duran side project Power Station and his being the original Mr. Suave in some unforgettable solo videos. Not one to give in to the trappings of success, he said in an interview:
"I loved the music, but the excesses of rock 'n' roll never really appealed to me at all," he said. "I couldn't see the point of getting up in front of a lot of people when you weren't in control of your wits."

"I can't think of another attitude to have toward an audience than a hopeful and a positive one. And if that includes such unfashionable things as sentimentality, well, I can afford it."

Very well said m'man. Very well said.
