Dire Straits

unique band.

Knopflers solo works do not have that vibe, even though they are good, seems too folky to me.

Re: Dire Straits vs. Simon & Garfunkel

I really like both a lot but have to give it to Simon & Garfunkel.
If this poll was for Paul Simon or Mark Knopfler solo work , I'd have to pick Knopfler.

Re: Dire Straits vs. Simon & Garfunkel

Definitely Dire Straits for me, they have long been one of my favourite bands and Mark Knopfler is one of my favourite guitarists - I've loved his playing since I first heard Sultans of Swing when I was a child. There are a few Simon & Garfunkel songs I like but they don't appeal to me as much as Dire Straits do.
