Singer Robert Palmer has died of a heart attack in Paris. He was travelling all over Europe promoting his new CD "Drive". His best known monsterhit is ""Addicted to love" from 1985.

He had been in the French capital on a two-day break with partner Mary Ambrose, after recording a TV appearance in the UK.

His manager said he suffered the heart attack in the early hours of Friday morning.

The Yorkshire-born singer had recently been on tour of Europe to promote his latest album Drive.

Palmer had been performing since the early 1970s, playing in bands including Mandrake Paddle Steamer and Dada, featuring Elkie Brooks.

He then went on to front Vinegar Joe, releasing three albums with the band before launching his solo career.

Palmer on stage with Chaka Khan at Wembley Arena recently. He was also a member of 1980s supergroup Power Station, which also included members of Duran Duran. But it was it was during the 1980s that he achieved mainstream recognition.

Known for his sharp dress sense, his solo album Riptide produced the top five hit Addicted to Love, which was backed with one of rock music's most famous videos.
