Dire Straits

One of British rock music’s biggest legends, Dire Straits have left behind them a legacy of Platinum selling albums and timeless singles such as Money For Nothing, Private Investigations, Romeo and Juliet and Sultans of Swing. Before their stadium filling days, when Mark and David Knopfler first formed Dire Straits they were allegedly quite unassuming, asking pub landlords to keep their sound system to a low volume while they played to allow the punters to continue their own conversations. You have to wonder if any of those punters had any inkling that these guys playing quietly in the corner would some day sell 120 million albums.
