Makes you think are you doing enough for your heart.

Here is the story from cp24.com
Sad Song

The world has lost yet another beloved celebrity.

Robert Palmer, whose famous hits included “Addicted To Loveâ€, passed away on Friday of a heart attack at the age of 54.

According to his manager Mick Cater, Palmer was on a two-day break in Paris after participating in a television recording session in Britain. He’d spent the past 16 years living in Switzerland.

Palmer began his musical career as a member of several U.K. acts before topping the charts on his own. The fame and accolades poured down in the 1980s with successful singles that included “Simply Irresistibleâ€. And the tracks came hand-in-hand with videos that showed a dapper Palmer accompanied by a plethora of beautiful women.

And his suave style even won him the best-dressed male artist nod from Rolling Stone in 1990.

But he was never drawn to the flash and excess that often is associated with rock and roll stars. “I loved the music, but the excesses of rock 'n' roll never really appealed to me at all,†he once said. “I couldn't see the point of getting up in front of a lot of people when you weren't in control of your wits.â€

Palmer’s other famous projects included the 1985 formation of Power Station with John Taylor and Andy Taylor from Duran Duran. It earned three U.S. top 10 hits including “Communication†and “Get It Onâ€.

When I saw this I got a lump in my throat. I noticed it on MSN when I was going into a work website to do some research. I read that Palmer was as sophisticated as I had imagined him to be. Loved his music and as a teenager he gave something to dream about. Had a major crush on the Dude.


All the good ones are dying.

Wow. That's twice now in quick succession that two celebrities died in the same day.

Palmer and Plimpton. Wow.

Stanley Farara also died, don't know what day though.

I saw that in this morning's paper.
How sad. Too young!
As I get older I'm having a difficult time remembering who's left! So many celebrities are disappearing.
