Robert Palmer was an English singer-songwriter who had a very diverse singing career.
Known for combining soul, jazz, rock, pop, reggae, and blues, he caught his big break when he was invited to replace The Alan Bown Set’s lead singer on the single “Gypsy Girl.” Over the next couple years, he sang and played guitar for jazz and R&B groups (such as Vinegar Joe) before signing to Island Records in 1974.
His biggest commercial success came in the ’80s, most notably with his signature tune “Addicted To Love
The single was bolstered by a hit video on MTV, which featured him backed with fashion models. It became an iconic video that earned Palmer a lot of notoriety.
He won two Grammy Awards for Best Rock Vocal Performance, one for “Addicted to Love” and one for “Simply Irresistible
He was a member of the ’80s supergroup The Power Station, which put out the Top 10 hits “Some Like It Hot and “Bang A Gong (Get It On).
For today’s reaction I’ll be watching his performance of “Addicted to Love”.
