No, no member of the Palmer family sanctions the website. Mark Palmer, Robert Palmer's younger brother kindly posted a blog to the site, but he does not endorse it in any way. From 2003 to 2006, the Palmer family and friends of Robert Palmer posted a website to honor his life. As they pointed out, it was only to help Robert Palmer fans who were having a hard time getting over his death. They took the site down in 2006. This site is posted by a Brigham Young University graduate who is a webmaster and very young. He is simply a fan of Robert Palmer's and wanted to post the site. He is not, nor has he ever been in contact with any Palmer family member or friend to get any endorsement of his site. A picture was sent to this site by Richard Coble, a former Production Coordinator of Robert Palmer's and a sometimes tour assistant Robert Palmer used while he was on tour from time to time. Also, a former administrative assistant from Island Records sent a couple of blogs to the site, one showing a telex that Robert Palmer sent her and a picture of Robert Palmer and Billy Bob Thornten with a blog attached that seems far fetched. She goes on at length about a double date at the movies with Robert Palmer in 1996 where "she, Harper, Mary and Robert saw Slingblade together. Not true. Robert Palmer was married to Susan Palmer in 1996, and David Harper who was Robert Palmer's manager at the time was married to singer Jo Florian, who was introduced to him by Robert Palmer. This woman was not on a date with David Harper like she stated, and Robert Palmer was not galavanting publicly with Mary Ambrose while married to Susan Palmer. An early article about Vinegar Joe is also posted by Elkie Brooks, who Robert Palmer had not spoken to since the seventies. The reason that this webmaster posted incorrect information in the discography section to certain songs was because Mary Ambrose contacted him to advise him that she was the co-author of several songs that she did not co-write with Robert Palmer. All anyone has to do is look at the albums' liner notes on any of the albums to be mentioned and Mary Ambrose's name will not appear anywhere within. This man gave credit to Mary Ambrose for writing Aeroplane in 1991 with Robert Palmer. Robert Palmer wrote that song alone, which appeared on Don't Explain in 91 and Ridin' High in 92. He also gave her credit for You Can't get Enough of a Good Thing which also appeared on Don't Explain. He gives her credit for Love Takes Time which appeared on 94's Honey and finally he gives her credit for True Love which appears on 99's Rhythm & Blues. Robert Palmer did not even meet Mary Ambrose until late 1995. She co-wrote none of these songs, however, the young man who put up the site wanted a connection to Palmer and got that through Mary Ambrose contacting him. He has been advised that his discography is not correct, but he will not change the information. Unfortunately, several other sites picked up this mans errors and started posting the lyrics and giving Ambrose credit for songs she did not co-write. The fact of the matter is that Robert Palmer wrote Aeroplane and You Can't Get Enough of a Good Thing alone, and he wrote Love Takes Time and True Love with Sharon O'Neill, who is a singer and songwriter from New Zealand. Mary Ambrose attempted to take credit for this woman's work. All in all, the Palmer family and close Palmer confidantes do not not recommend this website as a source of information regarding Robert Palmer. The information contained in large portions of this site are flawed or suspect.

No, it is not. Robertpalmer.com is posted courtesy of Mick Carter's IP address. In the IP information that I researched, Mick Carter states that the website is posted on behalf of The Estate of Robert Palmer and himself. That information is false. The Palmer family has publicly denounced this site. The Palmer family posted their own site entitled The Authorized Website of Robert Palmer in 2003 and took it down in 2006. Their site featured a letter written to fans of Robert Palmer by Leslie and Anna Palmer, Robert Palmer's parents. It included pictures of Robert Palmer from childhood and forward and also featured pictures of Geraldine Edwards, his girlfriend, who was also mentioned in the sites biography of Robert Palmer. Articles were contributed to the site by Jack Bruce, John Taylor, Andy Taylor and Carl Carlton. Music was provided for Robert Palmer's fan's as well, as well as letters wrote to his family and friends. The site was posted by the Palmer family to help fans of Robert Palmer get over his passing and have an opportunity to remember him from an insiders view. Robertpalmer.com is the exclusive vision of Mick Carter, and is not backed by the Palmer family. Carter was assisted in the creation of robertpalmer.com by a Brigham Young University graduate who specialized in Webdesign and was a diehard Robert Palmer fan. Together, this man and Mick Carter posted this site in 2008.
