Pretty sick guitar player for Dire Straits. My favorite album is the one he did with Chet Atkins.

No doubt. Chet and Knopfler are two of my favs.

I was lucky enough to see Dire Straits in 1979 at Emerald City in N.J. One of their first shows in U.S. I think. Probably less than 500 people there.

Then, in 85, when I traveled to Red Rocks for the first time to see the Dead, Dire Straits was playing at RR the night before, on their Brothers in Arms Tour. It was so tight. I have a tape floating around somewhere. If I had a clue, I'd get it up on Sugarmegs.

I'm with ya on that. I remember when the 1st Dire Straits album came out; it was the hottest thing on the planet. Sorry I never got to see them, but to see him do "Down Below the Waterline" or "Once Upon A Time in the West" would make the shortlist.
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!

He recently toured with Dylan. He also played on Dylan's Slow Train Coming.

Agree'd!!! I loved Dire Straits with the original drummer Pick Withers. Here's some more sick Dire Straits for ya'
The addition of a pedal steel player adds a new dimension to the sound.
Always wondered what Knopfler thought of Jerry's playing. I always saw some similarities.

You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?

It's dead and over when close enough is good enough.
