Dire Straits are amazing!!  Mark Knopfler is a criminally underrated guitarist.  His melodies are just wonderful.

Brothers in Arms and Making Movies are incredible albums.  ANyone who hasn't got them, go out and buy them.  ok

Steven's drumming made the band; he made a big musical difference.  His sense of swing was the push and pull that gave those songs their feel, afterwards, nothing worked. ~ Izzy Stradlin

i love dire straits.

i agree with miz, knopfler is an extremely talented guitarist. also extremely underated. i wonder how he fairs on those greatest guitarist lists. he's definetly in the top 20 in my book.

played with his fingers too, awesome i say.

just an alround great band.
excuse my ignorance but what nationality are they? i thought they were australian but im not sure any more.

They're british.  Knopfler is a Geordie which means he's from Newcastle (although I think he was born in Glasgow) for all you uneducated people.

The rest of the band (other than the Knopfler brothers) was assembled in London I think and I'm not sure where they all came from.
