Dire Straits was a British rock band, formed in 1977 by Mark Knopfler (guitar and vocals),
His brother David Knopfler (guitar), John Illsley (bass), and Pick Withers (drums), and subsequently
managed by Ed Bicknell. Although the band was formed in an era when punk rock reigned,
Dire Straits worked within the conventions of classic rock, albeit with a stripped-down sound that
Appealed to modern audiences weary of the overproduced stadium rock of the 1970s.
In their early days, Mark and David requested that pub owners turn down the amps so that patrons
Could converse while the band played — indicative of their unassuming demeanor. Despite this
Oddly self-effacing approach to rock and roll, Dire Straits soon became hugely successful with their
First album going multi-platinum globally.
