The greatest moments, maybe (at least to me) were their medley of John Marshall(77)'s drum solo and Hazard Profile Part 1 from Bundles. John Etheridge (70) is a true virtuoso on guitar. It's nice to have seen them live after all those years. And such a physically demanding drumming from such an old man!
Out of Season was not on their list - but that would have required a keyboards player, which they didn't have.
They played in a rather small club - in glaring contrast to the Roger Waters event at an indoor football stadium.
So Al Stewart's words come to mind:
Jazz musicians are down on the breadline"
is a well-respected guitar teacher.
Eking out a living should not be necessary
So brothers David and Mark Knopfler?
The Hall of Fame would not pay David's fare. David struggles with financing his recordings.
