Mark Knopfler and His Music

Dire Straits appeared at the end of the 70s and set the pace for their enormous success in the following decade.  We celebrate Mark Knopfler, the main man behind the band who went on to collaborate with big names in the pop, rock and country world as well as becoming a great solo artist in his own right.  We’ve made his Official Website our Website Of The Week this week on The 80s Lunchbox, weekdays at midday on The Cheese.
