    Robert Palmer - Boz Skaggs

    Both started in groups before going solo. Later they each recorded albums with musicians, who had been or would become established bands (Little Feat and Toto). They each had blockbuster albums Riptide and Silk Degrees.

    They each lived in several different places, dabbled in multiple musical styles, had reputations (or images) as ladies' men and dressed well.

    Wrong; Mexico is North America (not Central America :wtf:)
    The southern border of Mexico with Guatemala and Belice defines the border of North America with Central America.

    My bad - but mistakes happen and the point is the same and doesn't change a thing. Thank though for the silly face.

    If the people of the Southern Hemisphere were the first to do maps, it would have been the other way around.

    At least the early years (i.e. 1969 - 1971).

    My comparison is reduced to innovation around 1965-67, which in my opinion is the best period of both bands. But I respect your disagreement.
