Side Tracks

10CC...



No holiday for most right now, as many are in Dire Straits. A little pick-me-up never hurt anybody, and with a southern twang at that!

The first time I ever heard of Dire Straits was on a Winter Forge exercise in Germany, back in Jan 79. I was attached to the German Army, one of the German soldiers was listening to Sultans Of The Swing, and turned me onto it. It was Dylanesque, I loved it. Have listened to them every since.

Knoffler is one of the smoothest guitar players I've ever heard, probably because he uses his thumb and fingers instead of a pick. It helps to be extremely talented as well.. I thought about Sultans or Romeo and Juliet but this one just seemed appropriate today.
