He's one of the best rock guitarists ever, and I like his fingerpicking style. I like his older stuff better - can't say I'm too thrilled with his change of genre as of late.

I love Dire Straits. I have to say I haven't really heard much from his solo career. Telegraph Road has to be the most epic, grandest rock song ever.

I love Mark Knopfler he is so amazing, husband and I have seen him 4-5 times now..we go whenever we get the chance. I love Dire Straits..I grew up with them and U2 (both parent were huge fans ) but I also love his new stuff, he writes some really beautiful songs.....*crosses fingers for a Bono & Mark collaboration

Have you guys noticed that very often when you walk into some hifi shop, they're playing Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler to demonstrate the equipment?

Dire Straits only works when played LOUD.

But LOUD, they sound F***king great.
