Up and comers
Ruben Saenz de Viteri

27th May 2016

Way back Mark Knopfler produced and seemed to be helping out a new band, Aztec Camera. Not sure what came of them after the MK produced album. Have you given thought to coaching and producing any up and comers? Of course, I'm always on the lookout and really enjoy producing bands, young or old.
Death of Prince, Musicology!!
Marie Jo Lebreton
Paris France

27th May 2016

Hello Guy, Happy belated Birthday to you!! All the best for this new year!! It's been over a month that Prince passed away and once again we've lost a great Artist but that's life and there's nothing we can do about that. Anyway I simply wanted to ask you what did you think of Prince as a Musician and if you liked what he did, what was your favourite title or album? He said in an interview during the Musicology Tour that he was making real music with real Musicians and I feel the very same thing for his work than when I listen to what Mr Mark Knopfler and you are performing for us.By the way did you manage to see Prince on Tour? I never got the chance unfortunately!! Hope that you will for a very long time continue this beautiful work you're doing because there are less and less fine Musicians on this Earth!! Many greetings from Paris!! Cheers. I was a big fan of Prince and the Purple Rain album, in fact, we used to listen to that album a lot at Olveston House on Montserrat when we were making BIA

Another thing as I just discovered Steven Butler post from beginning of May, I like very much, "Diamonds and Pearls", Thieves in the Temple" among others!! Thanks for asking on this forum? And Guy I totally agree with you, Prince was certainly not as healthy as they wanted to make us believe!!

Hi Guy! Happy belated Birthday! Did you receive another particularly stunning shirt this year? Cheers, Val thank you, no this year it was a tape machine for my studio. A delicious Revox PR99 to be precise.

Hope it was a wonderful day full of everything that makes you happy. Echoing what other fans have said, I'm anxiously awaiting your new album. I never tire of the old ones but it's always a pleasure to have something new in the collection. All the best.... Thanks, I'm hoping it'll be a little different.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY..albeit late Doc can you put me out of my misery. It is possible that there are a few tracks out there where three members of DS were playing after the split. Greg Pearle and that bass player..lol (JI) oh an (MK). In fairness you were only one short of (AC). So do you agree that you can get by now without that Branded name "Dire Straits"? You all hide it well. I really would love to hear the four of you record or perform one last time...be honest, would you relish that dream like us all? Mark and I have got by quite happily without that particular branding since 1992. Personally, I would love to be a part of another tour with Mark and John, as Dire Straits, but I fear it would be for the wrong reasons. Mark has had many rewarding years as a solo artist and I've been fortunate enough to be alongside. The name never seems to go away, and why should it?..the records mean a great deal to some people.

Just a quick note to wish you a happy birthday. As I have gotten older (now 68)I have come to appreciate each one that comes. We have a 50 year high school reunion coming up and it's alarming to learn how many of my classmates have passed. So I hope you are having a great day and wish you many, many more!! Ron Thanks

Hey Doc, I hope this finds you well. Have you had the chance to listen to Eric Clapton's "I still do" and as I'm sure you have, what do you think of it? Best, Alex. Yes, I heard the album a few months ago as Glyn kindly gave me a sneak preview. I love it, just as much as I love Peter Blake's portrait.

Guy, do you go to concerts when you have time? Paul Simon is playing the RAH in november if i my recommend one! Looking forward to your new album. I may go to that one.

23rd May 2016

hi Guy, This may be a really ignorant question (yes-another one!) but I remember seeing a discussion between Mark and Zucchero regarding their recording of the song "Who will the next Fool be?" From memory, and I can't find the link now, the discussion circled around whether they should record it in C, C# or D. Mark said something like "recording it in D would be much better on drums." Was that a joke or can different keys have an effect on how drums change and add to a song as well? It's highly likely that it was a joke
Final song

23rd May 2016

Hello Guy, today I listened to Piper to the End and Going Home: Theme from Local Hero, both versions from the Tracker tour. I was thinking about the 'after concert feeling'. Going Home as final song gives people a much more happy feeling (in my opinion) than the beautiful and more sad Piper. Have you ever thought in this way? Cheers That's exactly why we play it

Hi Guy. Can you tell us a bit more now about your album now? Is the mix done or are you still at it this week? When can we expect a preview, snipets or whatever? Any time frame for its release? Your fans want to know!!! We NEED to know! No golf for you until it's done!! I can't really Nat but rest assured, there will be a deluge of info soon. I'm looking at production in the next few weeks, the album IS mixed and ready.
