Holder of an OBE, an Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award, 3 Brit Awards, 6 Grammy Awards (and a further 6 nominations) and a Member of The Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, it is safe to say that Mark Knopfler has had a serious impact on music. Finding fame first in legendary British rock band Dire Straits, Mark continued to solidify his status as a music legend, rubbing shoulders with Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Steve Winwood, by going on to release a plethora of genre defining solo albums.
