One of the most underrated bands imo. Knopfler is probably one of my favorite guitarists and Terry is an amazing drummer. Many people knows Sultans of Swing, Walk of Life and Brothers in Arms, but a lot of people doesn't know about the band.
By underrated, i mean that a lot of people don't know who they are. Even though everybody have heard songs like Sultans of Swing and Brothers in arms, many people of the general public don't know who they are. Everybody knows Van Halen even though they're not even close to Dire Straits imo.
Yeah, but just because some people don't know who they are doesn't mean that the band is underrated. The fact that lot of people KNOW DS's songs even though they don't know band's name is the best proof that they are not underrated.
