Danny's name plastered all over the cover though so a bit different to being a normal "hired gun".


I'd say that are all hired guns by Caviglia, lol.

Maybe an answer to "terminal of tribute to"?

What I was thinking and Mark can hardly complain.  Both pretty petty IMO.

For this situation to become even more ridiculous fans should collaborate and come up with a song ranting MK and his setlist choice :wave ;D

And... what if it's us, the fans, interpretating that both Terminal and 3Chord talks about Palmer, Clark and MK,but they are not?

Too many clues I'm afraid... They could've talk about random people, but who in Mark's circle can lead something that has to do with tribute, also happens to be old and feel he never had his share and a chip on both of his shoulders? Same with Palmer... Just the line about "lots of money" makes it clear to me.

Yes, there are clues that leads to Rome but...

we are fans, what if "we are seeing things" or "reading between the lines" beyond our wildest dreams?  :lol

I just saw the performance of "Why Worry" from An evening with Mark Knopfler and you can see Danny singing the song just for himself! This is amazing. Danny Cummings is in unique situation right now. He loves Mark's music, obviously, and he can play it, but he needs cash so he plays with other guys as well. Somebody tried to get in touch with him to know what he thinks abut it all?

he would say that it is "money for nothing" just in case he goes "behind with the rent"

I doubt the guys in "Legacy" will come out and admit that it is about MK. So it is up to each individual to decide what they believe.

There is NO doubt in my mind but people can believe what they want to believe...

Same that happened when we discussed Terminal of tribute to  ;D

Funnily, that train left the terminal and arrived to a station called 3chord trick  :lol

DS Legacy are pathetic. There, I said it.

I had a listen the other day and the songs are good. I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. The singer is atrocious though, I really don't understand why he's still there.

Sad thing is no matter how many albums these guys produce and release they will continue to tour pretending to be DS. The way their brazilian tour was promoted was disgusting. They would show up at cheap TV shows claiming they are Dire Straits with a new lineup. All the promo material was also misleading and opportunist.

If they dropped the DS catalogue and started to make a living out of their own songs they would gain my respect, even with that nobody singing. For now they are just shadows passing through  8)

Isn't it a "pay to play" thing?
