Well, I suppose he can afford quality shoes these days...
not like poor old Dave who was writing about the holes in his shoes....
Honestly, the importance of a quality shoe speaks to me more than 90% of what’s written these days.
Got my Sorels on my feet.
Cool song. Mark tipping his hat to Roger Miller....
funny that... the first thing I thought was .. sounds like Roger Miller....
He's so cool he can get away with this. See him in the 1978 video " Sultans of Swing" and his breastbones/sternum are sticking out he's so malnourished.
That man turned me to play Fenders after years of Gibson worship. He's the best in my books.
Really like that song!
Thanks, I needed that!
Me too!.....In the late seventies, when Sultans of Swing first hit, I was still playing, but completely OUT of gear stuff. I had to know how he got "that" sound.....I played only Gibson, and that sound ain't there.
So, when I found out it was a Strat with the "in between" p/up setting, I had to go for it. I played Strats for many years, until switching mostly to Telecasters.....even a Nashville style for that "Knopfler" tone.
I'm learning how to play with a pick again , after using one for twenty years, but started using fingers and nails around 1980.
What’s a pick?
King of the Road is what I thought too.
There is quite a selection of very cool instruments on that stage, including an old Kay bass, a Santa Cruz parlor, and an old Gibson parlor.
He has released some great solo stuff, especially about when he released 'The Ragpickers Dream', 'Our Shangrila' and 'Privateering' - some really good songs on there.
I nearly bought tickets for him in Zurich last year, as I've always wanted to see him live. People who went said it was kind of a slow show however, much more slow folk based, with only one Dire Straits song... I really wouldn'thave minded, but he still seems to be in the shadow of the DS genius fo the wider population. I was sad to see that my friends left disappointed.
Rhythm guitarist turns up without his guitar.... sorry, mate all we got left is this violin...
ok no, probs...
His Notting Hillbillies record is great, as is his record Neck and Neck, recorded with Chet Atkins.
We've heard many songs used for advertising all kinds of products... often unconnected with anything mentioned in the song...
I have a strange feeling we'll hear this one in future... associated with a footwear maker who puts up the highest bid for the tune,
