    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.

    My father turned me on to Robert Palmer years before his upswing in popularity with The Power Station and all that came after it. I was disappointed to see him fall under the radar screen - he really was a classy and dynamic performer. Last time I saw him was with the Max Weinberg 7 backing him up a few years ago.

    54 years old. Wow.

    RIP, RP
