    I am a HUGE Mark Knopfler fan. I threw away my picks after hearing Sultans of Swing for many years.
    That was a great film. That bridge looks like a mini- Sydney Harbour Bridge.
    Mark and Brian seem such humble chaps. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for sharing this... I'm a big Knopfler fan, and always loved Brian's fun loving attitude - never taking himself too seriously.

    What got me most was Brian's genuine admiration when Mark got into "Sailing to Philadelphia"... and the two sharing the old tunes of their hero's like it was yesterday.

    I agree - this was my favorite of Brian's series. Can't get enough of Knopfler's work. Not only does he know how to craft a song and provide the perfect atmosphere for it, his musicianship is beyond compare.

    I never really had a sense of what kind of person Brian Johnson was. He seems like a genuinely nice guy.

    Good for AC/DC, bad for Geordie, because this cover is excellent...

    Brian's interviews with Sting and Joe Walsh were also pretty good.
