Originally posted by vanquish:Dire Straits are amazing - epitomise the sound of classic rock, Mark Knopfler's playing is phenomenal, he combines virtuousity with musicianship - something very few guitarists manage to do.
IMO he is better than guitarists like Clapton, SRV, HendrixSatriani, Slash etc as I value musicianship - ie. composition and contribution to the song's feel above sheer virtuosity - which is why I think so highly of Edge.
Talented at songwriting too.
The Police are decent, don't really think much of the whole British reggae thing though.
