yeah, as we know, it's one of the things that John Monteleone told MK in the emails they were sending each other while John was creating the guitar for MK.

Some of the MK scenes comes from the "Guitar Stories" documentary made by John Illsley...

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Although the film excerpts are known, the interview with Mark at BG is new and therefore of interest to us.
So thanks a lot!

Yes, and it's only a trailer, there might be more of Mark we haven't seen in it too.

Brilliant, just never know if there may be some newer clips of MK? I doubt it but you never know...

I think we can't expect new clips because I can't imagine MK taking a flight to the US during a pandemic just to shoot some clips for Mr Monteleone. They already did that for Guitar Stories and not everybody saw it, so it makes sense to reuse that, though may be a bit disappointing for us get-a-lifers.

There are some stuff recorded at British Grove that might be new... or maybe recycled from the Get Lucky documentary?

Unless there are some snippets left over from Guitar stories that we haven't seen?

Reflecting on the Guitar Stories documentary there was something very special about seeing MK sat in Mr Monteleone's workshop and playing one of his masterpieces surrounded by wood chippings!!

Guitar Stories - One of the best document.

Phil Cunnigham meets Mark Knopfler -
also great.

Totally agree, absolutely love the 'unplugged' version they both play of 'Piper' - very moving!

Exactly!
I always thought they should release it on DVD. Just like Life In Songs.
