Dire, News, Rockpalast, Straits
this is the man!
Honest music is not hypocrisy
this bloke is the best 3 finger guitar picker in history
one correction not “they never wrote” but “he never wrote” as you’re writing about Mark Knopfler’s songs
you are listening to a musical genius, is MK an alien, no human can play a guitar like him
One of their best.
…and even then, Bob Dylan is massively overrated and more than a little bit self-inflated. John Lennon over Dylan as a songwriter any day of the week.
Agreed – Dire Straits are like the opposite end of the scale to Dylan. They never wrote sprawling poetic stories; just simple, beautifully simple songs, and that’s the key to their success. Even ‘epics’ like Telegraph Road are still very simple narratives about humble, everyday shit. I think their sound is far more important than their lyrics, whereas with Bob Dylan I’d say his words were what made the music.
… sorry … ! But this is my opinion.
Have you ever listened to Blood on the Tracks? It’s one of the best albums by Dylan. Listen to it if you haven’t and I think you’ll like it a lot , if you like him!
DYLAN? I see nothing that would resemble – especially verbally… ! Dylan’s lyrics are usually long and often are like “stories” . And most is kind of political, “dense”. Dire Straits sound is brilliant, like Dylan’s is too, his guitar was very good! , but Dire’s lyrics are more to the here and now and “lighter” . ( well I am refering to the older stuff which was REALLY good and worth listening to)
Thought so too! He is SO young there too! Even better looking than ever! :)) Very very slim!
I couldn’t agree more!
I LOVE IT ! ALL THE SONGS IN COMMUNIQUÉ I REALLY LOVE!
S h .. ! I LENT THE CD and the S O A B NEVER GAVE IT BACK THOUGH I DID ASK MORE THAN ONCE! WHAT TO DO?
But now I have got ALL the songs in the PC and will be burning a CD soon , now I have a little time for that!
Thx for sharing! ALL the D STRAITS performances at ROCKPALAST here at YT are AWESOME! I loved them all!
Ofcourse, you can hear him play the fast muted chords.

Thank you for this – I just joined U-tube today and part of the reason is to be able to see stuff like this. So tasty.
