Title: MK and DS pictures
Post by: Elise on November 11, 2016, 01:51:43 am
So, since the 'Rare MK pics' thread has been deleted I thought it would be nice for everyone to just share their own pictures of MK or DS somewhere else :)

Keep them coming, I love to see them!

Early headband pics there.  I think we established he never wore one on the UK leg of the tour in late '82.

Cool electric blue jacket.  Is it custom made with short sleeves so they don't get in the way?

These seem to be rare indeed. He looks unfamiliar with short hair (or wet?) at those times. But fresh colours. Not exactly that kind of humble understatement of today. I like those head bands!

To the light of your post I did some little researches and found out that member Pensaboy was the author of that thread but appears now as "banned" with almost all of his posts removed.
Dunno what sad thing happened with him but always a strange feeling seeing a long time and active member going away.

By the way, as it often happens with threads like this, many links simply would die as time goes by, so I think, to really preserve the pictures, you either need to upload it here on AMIT or on really, really reliable image hosting website. So to me there's nothing wrong with a new topic.

I never understood why they were using the same Mark Leialoha picture again and again, specially when it was from the last DS days to promote the MK solo career 4 years later...

MK didn't look like in that picture at all in 1996...

I think they photoshopped a 1996 shirt onto his body for authenticity though because he was wearing one with playing cards on the chest for most of '92.  I don't remember that pink/cerise one being worn at all on the OES tour. :think

A lot of the professional photos are taken at certain shows though and not every concert.  I can recall the Edinburgh show in '96 I attended was professionally shot by photographers.  There was a leaflet on the seat when I entered and it said that if I wanted to purchase any from tonights show it was being photographed.  Never had that before.  I think I sent away for one.  Need to have a look.   :think

Those were the times when German photographer Guido Karp was Mark's tour photographer. He made 50 (or 100?) Photos available from those tours, mostly and naturally shot during one or two German shows. They gave you the illusion the pics were from "your" concert and you got that leaflet where you could set your order. It was first time done so in 1991 and  also that same way during the 2001 tour.

I'd say Cafe Racers, I think in the Myles Palmer book is a picture of MK playing with them that looks similar.

It's not from the Myles Palmer book - I just checked, but I recognise the tin of toffees on the piano as 'Farrahs of Harrogate' toffees, just up the road from Leeds, so I would say it was taken, possibly, from Mark's time in Leeds, circa 1969/73.  However, David is wearing a similar outfit in another photo in the Myles Palmer book - and on darkshiver's avatar, so maybe it was from the time of The Polytechnic gig in Leeds, 1978.   :think

Dunno what sad thing happened with him but always a strange feeling seeing a long time and active member going away.

Explanation:

There was a thread were Pensaboy (not in a nice way) reacted to Quizzaciously about his MK songbook. Some insults (from a couple of members) were pointed to Pensaboy because of his reaction. That's why he decided (his own decision) to leave the forum. He told me that he was insulted (by some people here) many more times in the last year. He deleted almost all his posts and topics, including the populair rare pics topic. After that we gave Pensaboy a ban. We tried to recover this topic out of a backup, but unfortunately almost all pics are lost, so we don't put it back here.

And now we have a new pics topic  ;)

Yes, I definitely agree.  It's the Duolian String Pickers days for sure c.1970.  He wore that bunnet in another picture from those days.

The String Pickers never lasted long.  It was a case of hair today, gone tomorrow. ;)

Colin wrote:
- Picture 3 and 5 "But they were pleased with the new song, "Portobello Belle ", Mark had just written and were itching to rehearse it. If I recall correctly Mark and the boys had had a bit of a late one the night before. Perhaps it shows!"
- Picture 1,4 and 6 "Dire Straits down by the waterline in Greenwich, summer, 1978.Between Thames barges, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits pulls a face for the camera, 1978"

I agree, there is no harm in him. Fortunately, John is not the one who harbours a grudge over the years.  :)

I recall seeing this picture of MK and John Illsley playing live with the Talking Heads in 1978 in big size and without that "bar" in the image, did any of you have it?

This is not from 1978, not from the January tour when they were supporting Talking Heads. It is from summer 1979 when both bands played together on some  German (?) festival gigs, and I think some TH joined DS on stage, not the other way around. There are some more pictures of it around.

Never heard about it but makes sense as all DS are on the stage. I never saw more pictures of this, do you have them?

I *might* have them, at least this one a bit bigger, but not sure. A quick search did not get any results yet.  :(

But I remember seeing this one for the first time in a Spanish book on DS (which unfortunately I do not own), it was rather a big format. I guess the 'bar' in the picture is a shade where the page is bent when it was scanned from this book.

I love purple and always thought of that as the forgotten Pensa.  In the guitar Stories documentary they discussed with Rudy going to the café and jotting down notes on a napkin before announcing the flame maple MK1 as the very first Pensa-Suhr, however he used this on tour with EC at least whole year before that.  He certainly had it in January '87 for the RAH shows, whereas the MK1 debuted at the Prince's Trust Gala on 6th June '88.

Oh, those terrible striped trousers. Hope they will never come back into fashion.

You have to understand and accept that Dire Straits peaked exactly in the heyday of bad taste, in the mid-eighties. If you look at the clothes alone, that can be fun now, as these great pictures show. More importantly, though, the bad-taste fiesta also took its toll on the music. Some of it, I'm afraid to say, has survived until this very day, in Guy's synths and keyboard playing ...  ::)

Yes, I have a vivid recollection of distinctive features of 80s. All that 'splendor' coincided with my first experience of being in love and I used tons of radiant make-up to look as beautiful as possible.  ;D

My fauvorite guitar. I own a replica  of the flamed mk1. I asked rudy to make it 12 years ago. He told me it would take half a year and 9k dollars to be finished.
I purchased every detailed part mk1 takes and found a local luthier to make it. It is not a Pensa-suhr but it looks alike.
Same pick-ups , body, fret, bridge, pegs and  whatever it took.

It was a long tour, he surely wore many shirts we don't know  ;D
i actually distributed flyers for him at the last Bremen concert, thnx to our very own markywes. so it is still being done.

A lot of the professional photos are taken at certain shows though and not every concert.  I can recall the Edinburgh show in '96 I attended was professionally shot by photographers.  There was a leaflet on the seat when I entered and it said that if I wanted to purchase any from tonights show it was being photographed.  Never had that before.  I think I sent away for one.  Need to have a look.   :think

Those were the times when German photographer Guido Karp was Mark's tour photographer. He made 50 (or 100?) Photos available from those tours, mostly and naturally shot during one or two German shows. They gave you the illusion the pics were from "your" concert and you got that leaflet where you could set your order. It was first time done so in 1991 and  also that same way during the 2001 tour.

This is not from 1978, not from the January tour when they were supporting Talking Heads. It is from summer 1979 when both bands played together on some  German (?) festival gigs, and I think some TH joined DS on stage, not the other way around. There are some more pictures of it around.
they also played the Torhout-Werchter festival "together" that year.

Yes it was. Got a long time I had the VHS from the show. But played so many times that it was ruined.  Mark sang it live but music was in playback. That was strange because they did a mini soundcheck during the comercial break of the show.

Together with the Dire Straits picture of the Farrer House first concert, probably the earliest Dire Straits pictures ever.

From the third concert ever Dire Straits played, 2/8/1977 at Tramshed, Woolwich.

It is absolutely true but since our currency was weaker than Neymar's acting skills and the rate of inflation higher than Bob Marley it became unviable for the promoters to bring them over.

I created that picture of the OES bus. The picture of the bus I scanned from an old photo, pre digital time... even the original photo was a bit too fuzzy to read all the countries unfortunately. The two pics below it are screenshots from a movie fragment. Mark speaks about not playing in south America and eastern Europe on that tour, click here if you are interested;

I think 90% of her subscribers are there because of her "daddy" lol. Including me. And on Guy's instagram, too. But yeah, knowing that I never comment or like, although this particular picture deserves the like under any circumstances, because it's awesome and to be honest, something that Mark could easily upload in his own Instagram, if only he knew how to use it lol.

Difficult to say because he is shrinking with age rather like a plum/prune.  Probably about 5' 10".

I thought he looked very bloated on the facebook interview, but thinner on the Ken Bruce videos!   :hmm   Maybe he lost some weight after the facebook interview, whenever that was filmed.    Yes, I agree, 5' 10".   :)

Agree about his weight.  I don't think I've seen him as heavy as he was in that Italian Q&A thing.  He's looking back to his old self now.

I guess that bike is such a speedy bike that the world tour could be at risk simply because it would take a year to drive home.
On a serious note, I remember Guy said Mark used Subway to go to O2 arena to avoid traffic, while Guy took a car and failed.

6th July :)

Great sounding recording! Apart from the very last part of Telegraph road, it's the complete concert. The last three songs have been taken from a very good second source to make the concert complete. In some points of those three last songs some music from the nearby disco (!) was recorded too. It's sounds pretty distant but it's there. Overal sound quality is great which makes it a must to have is you like the 1983 concerts.

Yes it was. I had already seen Dire Straits in November 1978 at a very small intimate gig (maybe 200) at Durham University having been listening to the album since March 1978 before it was officially released.

A very interesting picture auction in ebay this week. A piece of history in paper. A shot from 70's? Anybody knows the date? I think a similar shot appears in a book. Colin Irwin book maybe? In that picture, which I don't place now, I had always thought Mark was with John, but the man who smiles behind Mark doesn't look like John. Any help?

It's Ron Watts from Brewers Droop 1973, similar to the one in the Myles Palmer biography.

No Mention of John MacKay.   :)

Yes, it's my favourite MK picture after the one from Shangri-La sessions, here's the link: https://sun9-60.userapi.com/c627830/v627830999/16b43/waWBVq6COoU.jpg (https://sun9-60.userapi.com/c627830/v627830999/16b43/waWBVq6COoU.jpg).

Business, I guess. It's like "Business in front, party in the back" hair style in the 80s, if Mark is dressed formally you know something is up :lol

He's certainly slimmed down, especially compared to the way he looked on that Italian TV show.  Perhaps after touring, and hence losing some weight, he realised how much better and healthier he felt being a matchstick man!

Perhaps another corporate show?

Nice pic, thanks for sharing jbaent!
And Mark looks very fit!!  :-*

I agree with you, Lis.   He looks as though he has spent some time at the gym!   :)    Thanks, jbaent.
He looks grubby and like he just woke up

I think that during Why Worry the lighst are semi-off (sorry for the bad explanation of "semi.off"
And like says quizzaciously, Mark seems like singing with an energy that not uses in Why Worry
Sorry for my bad english  :smack

That pic of MK touching his nose... Now I know from where and who that pictures come. Those pictures were made by Carolyn Dean and sold through MK News some tears ago.

I've never seen this guitar before. Looks like a Pensa Suhr, but this one is new to me.

Could it be this one?

The guitar was used on Randy Newman's [/size]Land of dreams[/size] album and Mark Knopfler also used it to play some promotional work together with Randy Newman in 1988. Click [/size]here[/size] for another picture of the same performance (Saturday Night Live, 20th October 1988) and [/size]here[/size] for a picture of a performance with Randy Newman on Sunday Night (6th November 1988).

Edit: Or I guess it could be the one used on Neck and Neck.

Classic MK rock 'n roll, could have been on the Neck and Neck record (licks + sound). You can hear The Bug, I Used to Could, Two Young Lovers, WOL, Next Time I'm in Town, Cannibals. Also snippets of There'll Be Some Changes Made in the solo.

You and I have had our disagreements in the past, but here I agree with you. I think Beck's solo fits really well. The overall production is very 80s style, and I'm not sure a typical Mark solo would have fit that well. Would be interesting to hear how Mark would have played it though.

The solo on "Beat it"?

Actually is far better than the Jeff Beck solo on Private Dancer, but when you listen to the killing guitar by Lukather on "Beat It" and the Van Halen solo comes, it's like a strange copy and paste of different styles that doesn't match very well, at least to me...

Well, at that time I was 23 years old.  I was very lucky to got a photographer pass and I could take photos during the first 3 songs (darling pretty, walk of life and imelda). I didn't even have a reflex camera!! so I had to borrow a Zenit camera, I also remember that.

Probably... Mark came to Barcelona in 1996 with Kitty and family. I remember that he tooks a car with a driver to get around Barcelona with Kitty all the time. I didn't remenber he tooks a bus that year That's why I think it was 2001 instead 1996... but I am not going to set fire to myself in this case....

I am still wondering why a HF transmitter is taped to it as the guitar seems fully wired (see 2nd picture).

Just found some NHB pictures at the Ronnie Scotts that a fan (I think it was a French fan, but can't remember who) sent me in 1999... It might be possible that it was my friend MArk Zeelenberg from The Netherland, but my meory is terrible.

Anyway, here you have some of them. You can see guests Chris Barber, Chris White and Dave O'Higgins....

Just found some NHB pictures at the Ronnie Scotts that a fan (I think it was a French fan, but can't remember who) sent me in 1999... It might be possible that it was my friend MArk Zeelenberg from The Netherland, but my meory is terrible.

Anyway, here you have some of them. You can see guests Chris Barber, Chris White and Dave O'Higgins....
if this is the night with Chris Barber, i was there, in front, far more hair then today. cannot find me on it though. was front row tables....

Hello everybody.
Today trying to order the huge amount of photos and clippings that I have in my collection, I found the first photos I could take of DS in Barcelona in 1992 when I was 17 years old. At that time I had a very very poor quality camera and these photos are taken a few minutes ago with my smartphone, so the quality is bad but I would like to share them with all the AMITers. They are photos on stage and back to the hotel in May (8-10th May, 1992 La monumental bullring )

It is a football shirt. From the second team of the city: RCD Espanyol. people whistled Mark a lot because he didn't wear the one from FC Barcelona... I think the band usually did this act in different cities around europe

Well, probably at that time, Mark had other things on his head (he was about to broke with Lourdes ...) and took the first shirt they gave him (also sure that the person who gave it was supporter of RCD Espanyol!)  ;D ;D

I always thought that Mark began to wear the headband in spring 83

but I discovered yesterday in a FB group, pictures from western springs 15th april 81, and he has it.  :o

so it seems he tried it in april 81, he didn't wear it in europe spring 81, neither in autumn-winter 82 (pics from wembley arena december 82 in the Oldfield book), and then he wore it again in spring 83, and kept it  :think

also, it is strange that there is no bootleg circulating from australian tour in 81  :think

He wouldn't have needed any sweatband in the UK during December 1981 because it was the coldest winter on record!  A severe cold spell formed in early December 1981 and lasted until mid-late January 1982.  I vaguely remember the snow being deeper than my wellies!

Sorry dmg, but the coldest winter in recent memory in the UK was in 1962/63.  I remember it well and it lasted from December 1962 until March 1963.  I remember it freezing every day for six weeks, even downto -20 and it was possible to skate on our local lake in Liverpool, which I did with my friends after work.  I know, I'm showing my age!   ;D

I think you get it wrong, the headband was also there because of the warmth of the spotlights rings over his head and as winter shows were generally indoor, Mark was also sweating hard on stage... Just my €0.02

LOL!    I do, however, remember a lot of very deep snow in the late 70s and 80s here in Yorkshire and some winters the snow was so deep that we had to dig out our front door (spade left outside purposely) to get in and that's IF we actually got to work at all, due to giant snow drifts across Leeds Ring Road!   Those were the days!    ;D  Also there's a big difference between the coldest winters and the snowiest.  Some of the coldest are the worst!

Hello everybody.
Today trying to order the huge amount of photos and clippings that I have in my collection, I found the first photos I could take of DS in Barcelona in 1992 when I was 17 years old. At that time I had a very very poor quality camera and these photos are taken a few minutes ago with my smartphone, so the quality is bad but I would like to share them with all the AMITers. They are photos on stage and back to the hotel in May (8-10th May, 1992 La monumental bullring )

I was on May 9, can you send me all the photos you have please ? carlosbelmonte73@yahoo.es

On 4th April 1986, Dire Straits performed a sell out, outdoor concert at Cairns Showgrounds, despite a torrential rain storm throughout the entire evening. The stage, equipment, instruments and band were soaked through, and Mark sang an impromptu version of 'Singin' In The Rain'. This picture of Mark and Jack Sonni was captured by Brian Cassey and printed across the Cairns Post broadsheet front page.

I remember working as a roadie about 10 years ago and the rain on the outdoor venues was one of the worst nightmares of the crew... Yes, guys on stage could have fun, be we certainly won't.

But at the same time, I can't understand how a venue can be outdoor and don't have any protection from the rain? Do the people who built this know about such a thing as the weather?

Re Mark's abilities on the piano, my guess is that he can't really "play" it, but he rather uses it to work out chord sequences. I'm sure he also knows enough drumming to be able to sit down in the studio and demonstrate the type of feel and groove he'd like.

Very nice - seeing this brings back some of my earliest DS memories. My Dad had this album (albeit on CD rather than vinyl), I remember him playing Sultans and Romeo & Juliet from it which was my first introduction to the band. He must have played it a lot judging by the wear and tear on the CD holder! I loved Sultans from the first time I heard it and started to play it over and over for myself, a few years before I started exploring their music properly. I also found to interesting to see that Where Do You Think You're Going is on side one of the vinyl, as it is track 7 (after the two Making Movies tracks) on the CD version - I assume time constraints on vinyl prevented the inclusion of Tunnel of Love on the first side. I also seem to remember reading that the live version of Telegraph Road is also CD only (same as Love Over Gold on Alchemy).

I wonder if that's from Mark's old home studio. Guy had a photo on his website where Mark was testing a Mexican-made Fender Strat at his home, and I think I recognize those curtains.

I'd guess MK is pictured on the left side (flatcap). Steve Philipps seems to be in the middle, if I'm not mistaken.

I think one of the dozens of musicians Mark played with. Interesting is that Mark's style here is very much David-like in later years, he looks here like David more than anywhere else.

No, I asked MKNEWS and he is Jeff Sadler, of Lindisfarne.

Looks like MK was friend of some of Lindisfarne members, it is known he recorded with Rod Clemments!

I always thought Mark also wore the same belt for like a decade or something. The same belt kept showing in the videos, so I thought he really loves wearing same things for a long time. A perfect example of if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Interesting, I bet the final price would be insane so can't even bother bidding. Strange they won't include the original brand of the boots, or it was a custom ordered ones? Anyway, great and unusual idea. You literally can stand in someone else's shoes :lol

Jackie Badger (bass player who played with Holly Vincent in 1973) and his husband on the left, Mark Knopfler and Holly Vincent on the right.

The text says "5 years later (1973)", but the file name is "Holly at birthday party 79", so I bet for 1979, as Holly moved again to London in late 78, and I think that Mark and Holly startet dating around autumn 78 (see my chronicle about "Romeo and Juliet" : https://textes-blog-rock-n-roll.fr/une-chanson-a-la-loupe-romeo-and-juliet-de-dire-straits/)

WOL from 96 was still great, can't remember if the one from 2001 started to be more Cajun and more slow, but 2005 was definitely the worst WOL version ever.

2001 version featured Geraint Watkins on accordion ,and Mike Henderson on harmonica and then on slide guitar
so a little bit in cajun style, a bit more in country-rock style on the outro

It's well known how big a fan Jon is of Mark and Dire Straits, I expect he was gutted that Mark wasn't there on that night. I think I remember an interview with Jon saying that he wishes he had written Romeo & Juliet, as an example, look at the lyrics below to the Bon Jovi song Always:

Always.

This Romeo is bleeding
But you can't see his blood
It's nothing but some feelings
That this old dog kicked up

It's been raining since you left me
Now I'm drowning in the flood
You see, I've always been a fighter
But without you, I give up

I can't sing a love song
Like the way it's meant to be
Well, I guess I'm not that good anymore
But baby, that's just me

And I will love you, baby, always
And I'll be there forever and a day, always
I'll be there 'til the stars don't shine
'Til the heavens burst and the words don't rhyme
And I know when I die, you'll be on my mind
And I'll love you, always

Now your pictures that you left behind
Are just memories of a different life
Some that made us laugh, some that made us cry
One that made you have to say goodbye
What I'd give…

My photo used for the cover back in 2010. MK probably just looked towards all of us, but it seemed he looked straight to my camera. I am 212 cm in height so it was an advantage ;)

Happy New year and cheers.

Pink Straits or Dire Floyd.

I remember Guy said that in a speed circuit or something like that he and John played "One of these days" and "great gig in the sky" with Nick Mason and others musicians, but I've never seen a video of that...

I found this in Guy's forum:

July 9, 2012
Question: Wow, John Illsley and Guy Fletcher from Dire Straits playing with Nick Mason and Durga McBrown from Pink Floyd two great Pink Floyd songs… Is there any video of this? I´ll love to see John playing the mad bass chords of One of these days, and of course to see Guy playing the wonderful piano chords of Great Gig…

Answer: I’m sure there is somewhere

Yes, I would love to hear that too, both songs would really focus on each of their chosen instruments. I am sure Guy has a lot of respect for Richard Wright R.I.P.

I assume these are photos from the American tour of "on every street". Joe Sia was an American photographer according to his biography. He lived most of his life in NY state, so we could assume he took these pictures of Dire Straits in New York, February 26, 1992, MSG.

I know that’s KTGC, but I’ve never seen this particular pic (what’s what my post is basically saying). The pic everybody knows is where MK is doing some hand gestures, but it’s completely different.

Last but not least, some impressions from a John Illsley-gig in Münster, Germany.
Jovel-Music-Hall, Münster, 03.05.2016. Smaller location with a few hundred fans. Very intimate concert. A few fans and me met John in the small foyer of a hotel close to the venue. He is a very polite person, and he signed record-covers and tickets for all fellow fans and he answers questions to us all. Fantastic person and also a fantastic show. He played his own songs and some Dire Straits songs, too.

Some pictures by myself from the Tracker-Worldtour in Germany.
Dortmund Westfalenhalle, 17.06.2015. At the Backstage-entrance a fellow fan from Poland and i got some autographs by Mark. He came a bit late to the sound-check-date at 5 o clock in the young evening. They were expected there at 3 o clock in the afternoon, so Mark and Band were short on time, but Pete Mackay, the second Tourmanager was so kind to organize a short stop for us, and Mark was always relaxed in his car, while he signed our records. Some other fans weren´t so patient and they went away to another gate, but that was really bad luck for them.
So thanks again Mark, for a marvellous concert and for your signature on my Tracker Vinyl-Album. :thumbsup

It was always fascinating to me, why so many writers or "creative" people are so in love with boxing? When I was young I thought how two guys breaking each other noses can be interesting at all? But Mark actually answers this question in Song For Sonny. I think it's their tough lives and "ultimate fights" that make it so special. When two boxers with 0 lost fights get together in the ring, that's something to behold! And you have "The Boxer" by Paul Simon, a brilliant set of films "Rocky"...

Thank you for posting some great pics here, SamGolden. Tough to jump from a 30 yo Mark to a 70 you Mark. Age is not just a number but that's life I guess. It's still 40 years great music and that's quite something in itself.

great ! I saw it on FB
I only knew the other pic

one comment said this :
"After headlining the Oakland Arena during their “Money for Nothing” tour, Dire Straits dropped by Sweetwater unannounced, with two tour buses and an entourage of 70, to catch guitarist Mark Kopfler’s hero J. J. Cale, that night’s headliner. Knopfler, who had never seen Cale before, joined him onstage while the entourage huddled in the basement."

Great little article and a great description of "twiddly bits". I figured it out when I was 15 or 16, it always amazes me the amount of impact this lick has on the audience every time Mark plays it, sounds really fast, but actually easy to play :lol

Hello border_reiver.
Yes, that´s right. :thumbsup
I found his High-School-Yearbook from 1972 and i hope i receive it within a few days. He attended a High-School in Conneticut. To me it is a kind of a document for my collection of various Dire Straits-artifacts. 8) Crazy but interesting to see.

Ich mag ebenfalls diese Promo-Fotos aus verschiedenen Epochen.
Ich habe den amerikanischen Seller nochmal angeschrieben, ob er noch weitere Infos zu dem Jack Sonni-Yearbook hat. Bin schon richtig darauf gespannt. Wahrscheinlich wird es aber von einem/ einer Klassenkamerad/-in von ihm sein, oder von ihm höchstpersönlich, aber das gilt es noch aufzuklären. 8)

Date: 24. January 1987. Typed date is: 18. March 1980. That could be the date of photography, and the other date belonged to the transmission of the doku.

Maybe because they care only about aesthetics and the actual appearance is nothing to them. It's like "I like more if he looks to this side", and because the photographer probably knows nothing about music, flipping instruments is OK for him. Another clue might be that Mark himself didn't care how to play for a photoshoot.

Mark may not be the №1 guitarist in the world, but he's certainly one of the most photogenic guitar players in the world. Mark and a guitar are like a match made in heaven. Perfect proportions, perfect hands, no terribly overacted grimaces, and usually no pick. I was always jealous about how damn good Mark looked with a guitar. But then I remember that he also sings well, write great songs and having a great family and my whole day is ruined :lol

Looks like it. So strange to see a capo on a Selmer-style guitar, it's like a violin with frets or something.

Vaison 1996, what a concert... been in the actual place some years ago, closed my eyes and played for a few minutes the recording loud in my iPod. It was good fun and made me think how much I would have liked to be there on that day. I was in Lyon that year both nights and it was great. What a tour!

"Between 1978 and 1979, Dire Straits used to rehearse at Wood Wharf, Greenwich, London. Whenever they were going to rehearse in the middle of the first and second album tour, they would refine their songs, create new arrangements, as well as new songs emerge.

This photo is on one of those occasions, probably on 9th September 1978, one of those rehearsals was filmed by 'Veronica' (TV). To date this video has not been found or shared."

You can caught covid even when you are vaccinated. The vaccine what does is tell your body how to defend against the virus, but anyone vaccinated can caught it and spread it to other people not vaccinated. Lot of scientists are already telling that we are going to see cases of people vaccinated that caught it. Most of them will pass it without problems because of the vaccine but some might not as it's not really clear how much the vaccine protect.

This picture looks like dangerous to me.

Yes, quite strange, but I think everything is OK here because MK is a smart guy. It's quite an achievement after 1 year of lockdown there was not a single photo of MK in mask until this point. The man knows how to hide from the spectators :lol

Mark's looks on this photo are pretty intimidating though.

All I can say is that actually recording actual songs is only a tip of an iceberg when it comes to recording an album. Most of the time it's experimenting with sound, moving microphones (Guy's favourite part of the job apparently), tuning instruments, changing strings, working out bugs, and only then recording. Not as romantic as it seems, straight to the point and usually a pretty fast job not only because the studio time is expensive but simply because you get hungry and tired super fast. You can even lose your voice by the end of a session. So the absence of studio photos is understandable, hovewer, in Mark's case, there are no photos at all.

For Mr. BG there are no real issues I believe :lol My only hope was that having his own studio, Mark would produce records faster, but his pace hasn't changed a bit it seems. If anything, it even got slower because of "moving microphones" constantly. The sonic qualities of the record took the lead thanks to Guy.

Owning a recording studio is a pretty risky business these days, but thanks to Mark he opted for that instead of, say, owning a winery which is everybody's doing. By the way, I like Sting's wine! The thing is Mark started building the studio before the whole home-recording boom and now, when everybody has a studio in his house with great microphones, preamps, and yes, modelling amps, studios will generate less and less profit, relying only on cinema, commercials, games work, etc.

It's not his house but a building bought and constructed specifically to be a recording studio.

He used to have a home studio at his Holland Park Mews house, where he recorded the whole NHB record, parts of Neck and Neck, The Princess Bride and Last exit to Brooklyn, also the overdubs and final comping and mixing from GH and STP. But nowadays he does everything at British Grove.

I never said that it's his house :lol Hovewer, I'm pretty sure it has some sleeping facilities so you can live there.

My biggest gripe with BG is that Mark owns this studio for 15 odd years and never did any live music broadcasts with video. Even John Illsley did it! A perfectly built studio, extremely photogenic, with amazing sound and opportunities. But we do have some lip-synced videos from Shangri-La studio. Classic Mark :lol

I have to disagree with you here. Granted, I don't listen to the last album a lot as I find other artists a lot more interesting these days, but I do think Mark made an effort to change things around and that there's a pretty good variety in songs and sounds.

I remember Mark said that he does pay for studio time at BG as it is a commercial business, he also said something like, as long as his accountant is happy he will keep running it.

I guess that the negative numbers might be because of the costs of building the studio and buying all the staff, that they are updating from time to time, he might have a loan to pay that costs, and would be paying it monthly or yearly. It would get a time when all that costs are paid and would start to give positive numbers...

It's logic to pay for the studio time, even for your own studio. You are using it and avoiding another client being there, paying, and he had to search for another studio he would have to pay for it, so it makes sense to pay for the studio time in his own studio. In the end is money that goes from one pocket to the other, LOL

A few time ago, i have read an interview with Mark about his studio. He said, that is it not so important to earn much more money with the studio, so for Mark it is ok to pay all the costs such a studio wil cause completely. That´s all. He does not need more break even with that studio.
Ok such a studio needs to be used allready, because all employees will also be paid. That´s fact, but i´m of the opinion Mark is able to pay all costs and to pay all his employees in the studio.
I don´t know if Mark made special costs for the Rolling Stones, which also recorded an album at British Grove. :think 8)

I doubt Guy or John Illsley get "mates rates" at all, why would they? as I have said, it is a commercial business, like other artists, they would have to book time direct with the studio, not just ask Mark. Yes, he owns it, but I doubt he gets involved with the day to day issues, that is why he employs someone to do it. Guy has his own studio too, so he wouldn't need to book much time in BG for his own purpose anyway.

I agree, it's either "free of charge" or full price. I remember reading that Mark helped people, who he hadn't gifted with his signature Strats, to buy it with a discount from Fender, so he cares about this stuff.

I doubt Guy could afford to use BG at full commercial rates.

I read an interview with Nick Lowe where he said BG is the best studio but too expensive for him to use. Nick Lowe has had hit singles and albums, has a loyal following and can comfortably sell out theatres. But BG is too expensive for him.

Razorlight, Travis,Chris de Burgh, Take that, The Last Shadow Puppets, Ronan Keating, Duffy, Mystery Jets, Noah and the Whale, Vicente Amigo, Iggy Azalea, ASH, Jonathan Antoine, Jamie Cullum and The 1975 between many others could afforded to record at BG...

Yes, there's no doubt Nick's appeal is "more selective" these days (and he's never been massive), but his records will still sell many multiples of GF. No way GF pays full rates IMO.

It's from a BBC documentary about Alan Hull (Lindisfarne) that is being shot these days.

FRom here: https://www.bbc.com/mediacentre/2021/england-commissioning/

Fog on the Tyne: The Alan Hull Story (w/t)

Daisybeck Studios

The story of the singer and songwriter from Geordie super-group Lindisfarne. Alan Hull was dubbed ‘the Geordie Dylan’ for his ability to compose a wide range of classic tracks in the 1970s. His songs included Lady Eleanor, Fog On The Tyne, Winter Song, Clear White Light and Run For Home.

Hull wrote about love and friendship, but also championed the underdog and the misunderstood, and celebrated working class culture in his hometown.

In this film, Brit award-winner Sam Fender explores the archives and discovers the real Alan Hull. We also hear contributions from Sting, The Unthanks, Elvis Costello, Kay Greyson and Mark Knopfler.

Mark's old man posture doesn't look extremely healthy here or maybe it was just an extremely awkward split-second to take a picture. Who takes pictures while somebody is going to sit anyway? Most importantly, what the guy on the left was doing? Looks like he held Mark's nose before the shot. A terrible picture indeed.

I know his posture isn't the best but here I think Mark is leaning forward to get his mic clipped on by the sound man. 

On another note, Mark used to always have such classy footwear but has taken to wearing trainers in recent years.  Did he arrive at BG on his skateboard?  The choice of the teenager, not the ageing rocker!

I liked the brown leather boots that he wore on the 2010 tour.  Not too keen on the trainers, but maybe they're more comfortable these days.  :)

Mark chats with Lady Di. On the background are some other faces. Next to Mark are John Illsley, Pete Townshend, Jack Sonni, Alan Clark, Chris White and Guy Fletcher. On the left corner possibly some parts of Ed Bicknells Face.  Pic dated on July the fifth, 1985. Shot from the Prince´s Trust-Rock-Gala event.

I think it is pretty obvious that he was on strong medication in 2019. Must have been heavy pain or even worse things going on. It's not just more weight alone. It's sad to see and typical for him to stay private about it (in case it would be so). I guess you have to respect him for that. Even if it hurts me to see that even Romeo and Juliet cannot be delivered in a good manner anymore.

Ha, yet another unwinnable prize draw. Thanks, I know it's a good cause, but I don't get winning a guitar just for putting in 5 pounds, that's ridiculous. And means that anybody, including a non-musician, can win this guitar. And eventually, end up either on eBay or on display somewhere. Great moves, Mark :lol

do you rememeber when there was that guitar competition about 10 years ago, the winner won 1 lesson with mark,
the 5 finalists were chosen very badly by the company (unrelated to MK) that ran the competition,
only 1 or 2 were good, 99% of the best players didn't reach the final and MK listened only to those 5 ones, unbelievable

Yes, I remember it, but I was too young at the time to participate and could barely play guitar back then, let alone record it in at least some quality... But as I remember, the winner was this cool guy who went ahead and wrote a great article on the day he met MK, it was a very genuine and respectful article, never ever have I expressed any envy towards this person.

This prize draw, however, is a complete free-for-all and defies common sense. The possibility of winning a guitar won't draw me into this charity because I know that I won't win. And MK thought that giving away guitar is enough, he could at least say something about the charity itself. Anyway, I'm not a fan of all these auctions and I'm surprised they're successful.

yes the winner was 1 of the 2 guys who were good, the very unfair thing was that MK didn't choose much at all, he listened only to the 5 finalists and chose the winner, 99% of the players were left out

It’s a good cause so worth a £5 lottery IMO.

I think this should be taken in the spirit it is meant, so good on Mark for helping yet another charity, the fact you can win the guitar is a bonus, raising the money for charity is the point.

I see it like you!
It's a great gesture from Mark to donate this beautiful guitar for a good cause. I hope that a lot of money will be raised to help these people.

Maybe he's just old? How good do you expect a 70 year old to be on the guitar?

I think that's it, he is just old
Yes, I guess so too. Just old. Happens all the time to lots of people. Sadly not to all.
