The Daily Walk with Love
— This Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits) and Eric Clapton mix
includes BB King, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd!
This must be one of the hottest
and coolest playlists on YouTube. Most people have heard
of Pink Floyd and maybe Led Zeppelin,
and even Eric Clapton still gets
a lot of “airplay” with some of his songs.
What about Mark Knopfler: WHAT, you say you’re TOO YOUNG,
that you don’t know who Mark Knopfler is??? In the first place,
he’s a Knight of the British Empire, but let me
give you a little education (below).

This must be one of the coolest playlists on YouTube). The featured photo of Mark Knopfler is from a performance in 2013, with Paul Simon (of Simon and Garfunkel):
This guy’s still got it! Most people have heard of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin (who perform on this playlist), and even Eric Clapton still gets a lot of “airplay” with some of his songs, such as his smash hit, “Layla.” What about Mark Knopfler: WHAT, you say you’re TOO YOUNG, that you don’t know who Mark Knopfler is??? In the first place, he’s a Knight of the British Empire, but let me give you a little education.

See An Evening with Mark Knopfler 2015 and Telegraph Road, The Daily Walk with Miracles, by Paul Evans.
“Mark Freuder Knopfler, OBE (born 12 August 1949) is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and film score composer. He is best known as the lead guitarist, lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Dire Straits, which he co-founded with his younger brother, David Knopfler, in 1977.
“Since Dire Straits disbanded in 1995, Knopfler has recorded and produced eight solo albums, and, as with his previous band, produced many hit songs. He has composed and produced film scores for eight films, including Local Hero (1983), Cal (1984), The Princess Bride (1987), and Wag the Dog (1997)….”
Visit the Official Mark Knopfler Facebook page. Please listen to a recent (2015) concert from Spain by Mark Knopfler called Live in Seville [26-07-2015] (YouTube — 1:52:00). See all the great digital rights free mp3’s from Knopfler’s eight solo albums on Amazon.com or on iTunes, which comments:
The most celebrated British guitar hero to emerge in the 1970s and ’80s, Mark Knopfler rose to fame as the leader of Dire Straits, and his songwriting and incisive guitar work played a decisive role in making them an international success story. At a time when punk and new wave were making technique for its own sake seem irrelevant, and metal was taking the guitar solo in noisier and unpredictable directions, Knopfler’s clean but dexterous picking proved there was still room for traditionalism and chops in mainstream rock & roll.
Visit the Official Mark Knopfler website. Also check out the official website of Dire Straits, which features The Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler Guide. I always have owned Dire Straits Greatest Hits, which is called “Sultans Of Swing: The Very Best Of Dire Straits (Full Compilation) . My two favorite songs on that album are “Heavy, Heavy Fuel” and “Calling Elvis” (YouTube music videos).
Dire Straits, Apartheid
Donald Trump and UNITY!
The video playlist description speaks of the ending of apartheid in South Africa and pan-African unity. Well here we are in the United States and Donald Trump is President. I feel he is somewhat misunderstood. To me, racism should play no part in judging (or NOT judging) a fellow human being, and this includes policing. But did you know that Trump has actually spoken of giving blacks a “NEW DEAL” here in America, and is creating jobs for ALL Americans, rich or poor, black or white or red or yellow?? One argument among the talking heads is whether American culture, in which whites will be a minority by 2050, should be “a tossed salad” or “a gumbo stew,” but I feel that misses the point. What is at stake is NOT white dominance, but cultural identity. I feel that Donald Trump has gone a little overboard on this whole American ethnic intolerance, although I CERTAINLY DO understand his fears about Islamic terrorists and street thugs from Latin America (although I am in no way prejudiced against ANT ethnicity). I feel Trump’s heart is totally in the right place. Understand: a Yale study of his first whole year in office stated that 90 percent of press coverage about Trump was negative, and he is no silver-tonged politician, like some. If you want to live in the United States of America you should learn our language and learn our culture and rapidly be assimilated. In the 19th century, the Irish and Italian immigrants rapidly assimilated, and there was no difficulty in their retaining their ethnic identity, either. We should NOT be a tossed salad of various, diverse subcultures (in a larger sense) speaking various languages (except as a second language they retain). One should not use or need a Tagalog interpreter in a Social Security office! Basically, in a sense I feel BOTH SIDES ARE RIGHT. But Donald Trump is gonna fix this country and there’s gonna be prosperity for EVERYBODY. May’s jobs report said we added 2.5 million jobs. Still, this is AMERICA, and we should understand and accept those who are different than we are, or don’t understand where we are coming from (without getting angry and essentially wanting to “send in the army!” This video mix’s first video description is living history and goes as follows:
Wembley Stadium on 11th June 1988 was the venue for a unique gathering of musicians and performers from all over the world who under the banner of Artists Against Apartheid paid tribute to Nelson Mandela for his 70th Birthday. An audience estimated to be well over half a billion people in some 63 countries participated in an event with a simple compelling message: “Free Nelson Mandela”. This VHS covers the highlights of that day including two tracks by Dire Straits and Eric Clapton. Dire Straits appeared as the closing act of that unforgettable day with Eric Clapton on second guitar. Until today, it was probably the most important and powerful concert in the Dire Straits history.
