Mark Knopfler became famous as a talented songwriter, a guitarist and a member of "Dire Straits" band. He was born in 1949 in Scotland but grew up in Britain, and he started learning playing guitar in a strange manner: being left-handed, he preferred to keep the guitar in way right-handed guitarists do. So he developed a very special wrist position and a characteristic picking style. In the late 1970s, together with his brother David Mark founded "Dire Straits" band, with which he recorded 6 studio albums and such hits like "Money for Nothing", "Brothers in Arms", "Sultans of Swing", "The Bug", "Walk of Life", and many others. After the band split in the early 1990s, Knopfler recorded a few solo albums, as well as continued collaborating with other musicians. The most notable collaborations of his are the song "Money for Nothing" with Sting, "Private Dancer" with Tina Turner, "Poor Boy Blues" with Chet Atkins, etc. Mark Knopfler wrote music for such movies as "Local Hero", "Wag the Dog", "The Princess Bride", etc. Knopfler has won 4 Grammy awards and has received an honorary degree of doctor in music, from the University of Sunderland and other universities of the UK.
