Additional comments One of the most interesting interviews with Mark Knopfler as this one does not contain the standard questions and answers. The Dutch radio reporter Hans Schiffers talked to Mark knopfler on the phone for the release of his new album Privateering. This is Mark's first solo album that reached the first place in the album top 100. Very nice comments about the way he is giving autoagraphs nowadays, his touring behaviour, why he did not appear during the Olympic Games in London 2012 with Dire Straits, touring with Bob Dylan, the new drummer Ian Thomas, what the sleeve of the album means, about his son Ben and many more. Wonderful to hear how relaxed and humble Mark is during this interview. Total playing time is about 21 minutes.  Good sound quality.
