Love that video, a great combination of a whistle and a guitar. Sad two of these guys are now gone!

"Today marks a sad farewell to Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains.  Paddy was great company and a force of nature in Irish music, with all the energy and talent required to drive things along over the years.  I am proud to have recorded and played with him.’

This year alone, 5 people who has passed away is mentioned on the MK website. I really hope Mark see that he should do things *now*, and not wait. In theory, he has been almost a year in BG, and we don't even get a studio diary. No news. He hasn't been there all the time of course, and the pandemic probably is the main reason for the delay, but I can't help to be a bit worried.

Your thoughts go through my mind, too.

I think the cool thing about MK is he can't rush his work at all, I think he's naturally slow (Slow Learner, huh?) and loves to work slow, so he can't possibly rush his work even if all his colleagues would die. That can only affect his writing, I'm afraid.

It is slow but not the slowest. Peter Gabriel once said that  new album will be released in September. But he didn't say which year. And so it passed 20 years :)

I don't think it matters how long an album takes, aslong as the end result is good,
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

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

Amazing to think about the body of work The Beatles produced in just 7 years...

Sorry to go on about The Beatles so much but it amazes me that they have so many album tracks that if they were released by anyone else in the 60s would be all time classics today. Things like Things We Said Today or And Your Bird Can Sing.

Let's not forget that Mark has been releasing a new album regularly for 20 years. Every two or three years.

Yes, and they have been consistently high quality (IMO). Imagine you were a Billy Joel fan, he hasn't done anything new in nearly 30 years.
