Does anybody else here listen to the band Dire Straits? I think they're an amazing band, they have some good lyrics and Mark Knopfler is just amazing. My favorite songs from them are "skateaway", "sultans of swing", and "money for nothing".

Heck yeah! I love watching the Sultans of Swing music video. Mark Knopfler is awesome on the guitar. i especially love the ending when he solos.

He's got such a great,casual playing style, like its nothing. "Brothers in arms" for exemple, its like the guitar is singing for him. Yeah they're really one of a kind, great qualitative music.

Yeah I agree 100%. Not only is the man a stellar guitarist, he's also a great vocalist.

off of the brothers in arms album the songs "mans too big" and "ride across the river" get over looked these two songs are just mind blowing!
