The members of Dire Straits UK are ecstatic to extend our warmest congratulations to all of the members of Dire Straits for their induction into the Hall of Fame.
Congratulations to John Illsley, David Knopfler, Guy Fletcher, Alan Clarke, Phil Palmer, Pick Withers, Chris Whitten, Chris White, Hal Lindes, Jack Sonni, Paul Franklin, Danny Cummings and, of course, Mark Knopfler!
Why it has taken so long, we have no idea.
We started Dire Straits UK in honour of Dire Straits and to play their music to fans like us is a dream come true for all of us. We strive to be a fitting tribute to Mark’s band and Mark’s music and we hope that fans of Dire Straits will come out to see us during 2018 and beyond to help us pay great respects to the timeless Dire Straits.
Congratulations to you all.
Dave, Al, Alec, Rick, Lac and Chris.
