Dire Straits- Brothers in Arms 35th Anniversary- Mark Knopfler

"It's like someone pulling at a thread, unraveling your sweater, except the sweater is you, " former Dire Straits bandleader Mark Knopfler tries to explain the phenomenon of "Brothers in Arms" thirty-five years ago  and modern super-celebrity here In the Studio  in this classic rock interview. "I recommend success to anybody. I can't think of anything good about fame. If you can, let me know."

Dire Straits- Best pt 2- Mark Knopfler

When the song "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits became a worldwide hit in Summer 1985, the album Brothers in Arms spent a stunning nine weeks as the #1-seller in the US in 1985, eventually selling a staggering 26,000,000  copies worldwide. This kind of celebrity could not have happened to a more reluctant rock star than Dire Straits leader Mark Knopfler, and trust me, there is absolutely no way to prepare for what comes next.
