What it is....

I've been a fan of Mark Knopfler and "Dire Straits" for longer than I can remember.

In fact, Dire Straits' album: "Making Movies" - was the very first rock album I heard (even before "Dark Side of the Moon").

I've always appreciated the songwriting/storytelling nature of their work (e.g. Private Investigations, Telegraph Road, Tunnel of Love, News, You And Your Friend, Local Hero, Single Handed Sailor, Brothers in Arms etc.)

What/who was the first artist you remember listening to as a youngster (an artist you have formed a life long affection for?)

I posted mine on my blog along with some youtube videos if you'd like to see. ;) This is a wonderful topic.

By the way, I listened to the song you recommended "Honey and the Moon". It was lovely, thank you for sharing it!
