Robert Palmer: Some Guys Have All the Luck

He helped to define that odd era in the Eighties when pop stars wore suits, but Robert Palmer had been around for a long time.

In particular, in the early Seventies he had been a member of the highly regarded band Vinegar Joe along with Elkie Brooks.

This song made no. 16 in the UK charts in 1982. It was a complete reworking of the original song by the The Persuaders, clearly carried out by someone who had listened to a lot of Bowie.

Robert Palmer died in 2003 aged only 54.
