Robert Palmer Net Worth
Robert Palmer Net Worth: Robert Palmer was a British singer, songwriter and musician who had a net worth of $10 million dollars at the time of his death. He made a name for himself as a musician with a distinctive voice and rare ability to make eclectic mix of musical styles, combining soul, jazz, rock, pop, reggae and blues.
Palmer was born on January 19, 1949, in Batley, England. He spent the most of his childhood in Malta where his father served as a British naval intelligence officer. At the age of twelve, right after returning to England, he started learning guitar. In 1969 he joined a jazz rock group called "Data". They eventually signed to the Island Records label. The band released three albums: Vinegar Joe (1972), Rock 'n' Roll Gypsies (1972) and Six Star General (1973), before breaking up in March 1974. That same year, Palmer signed a solo deal with Island Records.
He saw the release of his first solo album "Sneakin' Sally through the Alley" in 1974. After he moved to New York with his wife and children he released "Pressure Drop" in 1975. He would eventually release eleven more studio albums, each leaving its own mark in the music world.
It was the 1978 "Double Fun" that broke Robert into the mainstream but it was his 1985 album "Riptide" that made Palmer a superstar. That album's lead single "Addicted to Love" was a massive hit, thanks in no small part to its memorable music video which was played non-stop on the new MTV. The song won him a Grammy. His next album, 1988's "Heavy Nova" featured the single "Simply Irresistible" which won him a second Grammy Award in 1988.
Unfortunately Robert Palmer died in a hotel in Paris, on September 26, 2003. The cause of his death was a heart attack. He was 54 years old.
