He was a member of the '80s supergroup The Power Station, joined by Chic drummer Tony Thompson and Duran Duran's John Taylor and Andy Taylor. The band's eponymous album yielded the Top 10 hits "Some Like It Hot
" and "Bang A Gong (Get It On)
." On the accusation of copying the group's sound for his own solo records, Palmer told Number One
magazine: "Listen, I gave the Power Station that sound. They took it from me, not the other way around."
