2m45....

Mark acts astonishingly unprofessional here. The true professionals are the ones behind him. This performance was destroyed by his behaviour, not by the technical mistake. But he's human after all. I often wonder if he does those heavy mistakes on Sultans by purpose.  ;D

I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much

Fair play to MK though, he was in the middle of a 'lick' and to suddenly lose the sound obviously was a shock but indeed his professionalism showed by 'carrying on'

It took him a few bars to gain confidence that the sound wasn't going to suddenly disappear again!!!

No gig is ever perfect, no matter what anyone says, these people are human not robots, every musician has made mistakes, It's no big deal. I prefer to focus on the positive, not the negative.
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

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

I remember this video from 2010:


And I also remember the wrong capo on Richard's guitar during BIA, I think it was 2005 Amsterdam or Rotterdam ;D

In my opinion Mark handled these situations very well, kept his coolness, laughed about it and carried on with the show. Great man!
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.
