The Power StationLyrics Some Like It Hot

Upon the release of Duran Duran’s third album, Seven and the Ragged Tiger, its members split up in to two different projects. One was Arcadia, the other the Power Station. Roger Taylor played drums for the former, but also contributed percussion tracks to the Power Station. In early 1985, the Power Station made an appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing “Bang a Gong” and “Some Like it Hot.” This would be Robert Palmer’s only live appearance with the Power Station.

In the year 1985, the Power Station broke up. They would reunite ten years later with all the original members, including Palmer. However, John Taylor had to withdraw from the band before the recording of the album was complete, owing to a drug problem and a divorce battle. Bernard Edwards, formerly of CHIC, stepped in and took Taylor’s place, although he suddenly died before the band was able to go on tour.

The albums of the Power Station include The Power Station, Living in Fear, The Best of, and 2005’s The Power Station: 20th Anniversary Edition.
