Anti-Madonna comments on Robert Palmers board. She may be loved, but she is clearly hated as well.

Robert Palmer's talent as a song writer, producer, and performer should be recognized by his industry. Yes, most know him by the 80's videos and Power Station, but there is so much more talent. I wish the younger generation could learn more about all his good music. Such a gift!

Robert Palmer was a musicologist. He wrote, sang, produced and performed music. He lived it, he up-lifited, he shared it, he persevered it and he studied it. He was always steps ahead of the industry. One of the first using synths, making videos, infusing world music into his work, singing with a chorus. You could even say he's "the father" of the modern day video. If there's one thing the R&R Hall of Fame tries to do, it is to instill into the youth and people around the world an appreciation of music, all genres. He personified it and should be there.

This is one man who is so over looked I wonder If his name's been mentioned ever by any of the nominating people. Name one white male singer today with half of this man's swagger...wait name one black, white, red or yellow man and I'm not talking about those girly men out there... I can't think of one!

Another incredible artist whose talent is overlooked and should be in the hallowed hall!

Hate to break the news to you, Yolanda, but he died in 2003. Don't know how that effected his looks, though.

A bit more skeletony I presume.

This is an interesting one. I think the "perception" of Palmer is built entirely around his mid to late 80s chart hits and MTV Videos. There was so much more to his music and contributions.

Melissa Manchester's version of Johnny and Mary had additional lyrics, both versions by Bernie Taupin. Also covered by Tina Turner. Music by Robert Palmer. Palmer's version was the original.

I know that this is an old thread, but I had to comment. Robert Palmer was AMAZING, and he was one of the kings of Blue-Eyed-Soul. He was so original, a gentleman, and an amazing performer. Bernie Taupin added the lyrics to Melissa Mancherter's version, but Johnny and Mary by Robert Palmer is 100% Robert Palmer, with no help from Taupin.

Bad Case of Loving You should be an essential song.

There is always wonder in how some artists can be overlooked and amazement as to how others where selected for the top honor. Through all the years THat I have witnessed rock and roll evolve the following should have been enrolled; Johnnie Brunette, Chubby Checker, almost all past R AND B PERFORMERS ACCROSS THE MUSICverse.
