In my "Top 10"...right up there with Clapton, Gibbons, Page, Paul and Atkins, IMHO.

I remember hearing "Money For Nothing" back in the mid-80's when MTV started up. Still one of my favorites.....what's not to love. I always have a little Dire Straits in the truck with me today.

But a spoonful of forgiveness
Goes a long, long way
And we all should do our best
To get along

Add a pinch of kindness crumbling
To your loving dumpling
Okra for thickening
When something's wrong

But who put old pigweed in the mulligan?
Was it you?
Who put old pigweed
In the mulligan stew?

I close my eyes for just a minute
What do you do?
Who put old pigweed
In the mulligan stew?

Mark Knopfler

He is definitely a "Guitar Hero". I love his style of playing.

He was born in Glasgow, but grew up in my hometown and thinks of that as his spiritual "home",always gives it a name check in interviews.
Good decent bloke,but I'm not really that fond of his music,it isn't LOUD enough.
