European music fans are getting a special treat this fall as Mark Knopfler, the founder and legendary lead guitarist of Dire Straits, joins Bob Dylan on tour.
Dedicated music fans that are old enough to remember Dire Straits’ first self-titled album will remember that Knopfler joined Dylan as producer and guitarist for Dylan’s Infidels album. Knopfler’s “modified claw-hammer blues” style of playing his custom Schecter Stratocaster guitar makes him not only one of the greatest guitarists of the rock era, but a unique stylist. His virtuosity brings an especially bluesy sound to Dylan’s music. Since the breakup of Dire Straits, Knopfler has kept a low profile on the rock scene, preferring to release more folkand country sounds such as on the albums All the Roadrunning (with Emmylou Harris), Kill to Get Crimson, and Get Lucky.
Knopfler and band will perform at all shows in Europe.
