Here i can show another Dire Straits with Lady Diana pic from my collection.
Original B-W-Pressphoto from Press Association Limited with Text-layout above. Original archive-pic, no copy.
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.

Anytime I see a 2015 picture and then a 2019,it looks like it was not 4 years but 25 had passed between both tours...

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.

I have no doubt he has had health issues for a number of years now that has effected his playing, he is perfectly entitled to keep that private though, so we may never know what it is, you don't just simply loose the ability to play like you used too, there is a good reason behind it.

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

That could be MK basement in his NY house, when they were preparing for the Infidels record.

I do feel the same. Something very serious must have happened to his health between these years and I cannot help but feel sorry for him.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

It was 4 years after all.  When you think of the difference between 2013 and 2015 it's not so surprising.

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

Maybe one of the Mexicans he auctioned in 2002?

Anyway, it always breaks my heart to look at the guitar that just sits on the wall... Take it and play it, for Mark's sake, somebody, please.
