It's sort of a bucket list moment. One of my favorite guitarists was in town and we found out early enough to get tickets.
Mark Knopfler's Tracker Tour came to town last night. This photo is from a stop in Germany earlier in the year. That's Mark, of course, in the bright light with the red Fender Stratocaster, and while this shows three members of the band, most of the time there were eight musicians on stage. Nine when the saxophonist came out for a few songs. Very good back up and a leader who has to be on anyone's short list of the greatest living guitarists.
Lucky you. I've been a fan since the mid 80's when I heard Sultans at 2 in the morning while I was trucking.ReplyDelete
