It's been said that "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture." But the rock critic Robert Palmer didn't have any trouble. Palmer wrote effortlessly about all kinds of music – rock and roll, blues, jazz and world music. The fact that Palmer was also a musician didn't hurt. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, Palmer's daughter, Augusta, and his fellow critic, Anthony DeCurtis, talk about what made Robert Palmer such a great critic. Also...John Mendelssohn on his double life as a music critic and a singer.
