Overview.

They wear dull hairbands and simple clothes, making them look like a poor old band who's trying to make it big, but their perfomance has won them a million fans across the globe; Including the late Princess Diana! Their guitaring is metallic and full of meloncholy and Mark's lyrics reach deep down to your soul. Besides that their Public Appearance is what makes them one of the biggest bands in the history of rock!

Although a group effort Dire Straits revolves around a nucleus named Mark Knopler. A superb guitarist Mark has written all the lyrics Dire Straits has played. His song Private Dancer performed by Tina Turner has been a major hit. Besides providing lead vocals and guitars to the band, Mark has also done some Solo projects, played Producer and also ventured into Film making.

Their albums have sold by the tonnes and in the mid eighties with Omar Hakim (Weather Report), Brecker brothers, Eric Clapton (The God) and the Evergreen Sting supporting them Dire Straits cut out which was probably their best Album to date...'Brothers In Arms'.

If you are a Dire Straits fan I don't have to persuade you, but if you have'nt heard Mark Knopler & Co. you are missing something...Nobody makes music as good as Dire Straits...They were, Are and Always will be...The Sultans Of Swing!
