    Dire Straits

    Pretty much have all of their music. Very popular with the girls in my dorm at college. Mark Knoplfer is one of the great guitar players ever, really enjoy some of the extended guitar sections in tracks like "Tunnel of Love" and "Telegraph Road." However, my favorite in the group...
