Dire Straits

How It All Started
Everyone knows Dire Straits has become famous because of the voice and also the guitar-play of Mark Knopfler (1949), the one and only frontman Dire Straits has ever had. But only few know that Dire Straits was founded mostly by Marks younger brother, David Knopfler.
Together with John Illsley (1949) they formed a line-up which was soon completed with Pick Withers, who played the drums. At first they played a couple of gigs under the name of Mark's previous band, called the Cafe Racers.

In my opinion Dire Straits is one of the greatest bands ever. It's almost a shame they have sold so many records. Now it's less exclusive...
But hey, good music should be heard!
