I Never Thought It Would Happen podcast
« on: June 06, 2024, 08:03:36 AM »
Mark is guesting on Chris Difford's(Squeeze) pod.
https://audioboom.com/posts/8518251-i-never-thought-it-would-happen-mark-knopfler

Joining Chris is Mark Knopfler, the revered singer-songwriter and a masterful guitar player, with a totally distinctive sound and style. Always fascinated with music, Mark worked as a junior reporter and studied English before finally realising his long held dream of finding the right band. That band was Dire Straits, whose ascent was remarkable with their 5th studio album 'Brothers In Arms' becoming a global juggernaut eventually selling over 30 million copies. But after several gruelling world tours and the almost impossible task of topping their best loved album the band splintered.

But since 1995, Mark's kept busy with a steady stream of solo albums, soundtrack work and collaborations with like-minded artists like Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris and Chet Atkins.

I couldn't listen further than the start, but seems MK and Chris talk about Mk played on a recent song about Deptford for Chris, which seems to be something from another podcast... We should be checking that!
