The Straits (Dire Straits without Mark Knopfler) performing Sultans of Swing at a Lords Taverner’s charity event at the Royal Albert Hall, yesterday eveny, 22 May 2011. The first time they have performed together for 20 years. Where did all that tiem go? ! sometimes think I’me living in a time warp. Anyway, it was all utterly brilliant, with proceedings ably led by Alan Clark, former keyborad player with Dire Straits. They should do a tour – with or without MK.
I’ve included a short video clip of their performance. Apologies for the sound quality – due to my mobile phone rather than what was actually produced by the band.

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
