Dire Straits история музыкальной группы и концерт Money For Nothing

Dire Straits - британская рок-группа, основанная в 1977 году Марком Нопфлером (гитара, вокал), его братом Дэвидом Нопфлером (гитара), басистом Джоном Иллсли и ударником Пиком Уизерсом. Менеджером группы на протяжении почти всей её карьеры был Эд Бикнелл. Музыкальный стиль Dire Straits, развившийся из паб-рока, может быть охарактеризован как мелодичный блюз-рок, испытавший сильное влияние кантри, рок-н-ролла, фолка и джаза. В творчестве группы преобладали меланхоличные композиции.
