TIMELINE

Dire Straitsbutton.gif (123 bytes) Dire Straits was formed in London by Mark Knopfler (lead vocals and lead guitar) and his brother David (guitar), with John Illsley (bass), and Pick Withers (drums). In the late 70s, the band emerged with a refreshing rock sound mixed with blues, jazz and even country. The band's sound was strengthened by the meshing of players and Knopfler's lyrics. Mark Knopfler is and always has been the face and force of Dire Straits. Prior to forming the band, Knopfler worked as a rock critic and taught English. He also involved himself with a rock band named Brewer's Droop in the mid-70s. Mark then hooked up with his brother, David, roommate, John, and Withers to cut a demo (changing there name from Cafe Racers to Dire Straits). Soon after, "Sultans Of Swing" was being played on a BBC show in England, and the band began opening for Talking Heads on tour.
