At 16, Knopfler and some pals cut a demo single that was never released, and he performed in a vocal group that was successful enough to merit an appearance on local television. In , Knopfler enrolled at Harlow Technical College, where he studied journalism, and a year later he landed a job at the Yorkshire Evening Post, where he wrote news stories and music criticism. After two years at the Post, Knopfler opted to return to school, studying English at Leeds University.

While at Leeds, he became friends with a fellow guitarist named Steve Phillips, and they began playing out under the name the Duolian String Pickers; while working with Phillips, Knopfler began developing the fingerpicking style that would become his trademark. After graduating from Leeds in , Knopfler moved to London and joined a pub rock band called Brewer's Droop, featuring drummer Pick Withers.

Knopfler's tenure with the band was short-lived, and he took a position as a lecturer at Essex's Loughton College.

Mark's brother, David Knopfler, who was also a guitarist and songwriter, introduced Mark to a fellow musician, John Illsley, who played guitar but was also a solid bassist. Bicknell took Dire Straits under his wing and Stainze signed the group to Polygram's progressive and hard rock subsidiary Vertigo Records; Warner Bros.

Dire Straits' self-titled debut album was released in the fall of , and the song "Sultans of Swing" became a surprise hit single in both America and the U.

It was the first of a long string of successes for Dire Straits, and while the lineup would shift frequently over the group's lifespan -- Mark Knopfler and John Illsley would prove to be the group's only constants -- between and the group was a top concert draw and a frequent presence on radio and record charts; their landmark album Brothers in Arms sold over nine million copies in the United States alone, and was the top-selling CD of the '80s in the U.

It wasn't long after Dire Straits made their commercial breakthrough that Knopfler began expanding his creative boundaries. In , he was invited to play lead guitar on Bob Dylan's album Slow Train Coming, and in , he produced Dylan's Infidels, as well as leading the backing band. He also penned the song "Private Dancer" for Tina Turner's triumphant comeback album of the same name, and found his songs being covered by the Shadows, whose legendary guitarist Hank Marvin was one of Knopfler's first inspirations.

And when Weird Al Yankovic asked Knopfler's permission to record a parody of Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing" for the soundtrack to his film UHF, Knopfler agreed under one condition -- that he be allowed to re-create his guitar parts for Yankovic's version. Weird Al happily acceded to Knopfler's request.

In the fall of , Dire Straits played their last concert, a show in Spain on the tour in support of On Every Street, and in , Knopfler quietly announced that he'd retired the band, feeling they'd become too big. The newly prolific Knopfler shortly returned to the studio and released The Ragpicker's Dream in the fall of ; a world tour was planned, but after Knopfler was involved in a motorcycle accident that left him with a broken shoulder and collarbone, the dates were canceled.

However, he was soon feeling well enough to go back to recording, and issued Shangri-La in , a set recorded at the Malibu compound where the Band recorded and rehearsed in the '70s.

As Knopfler's taste for rootsy, country-influenced sounds became a growing presence in his solo work, he began working on material with singer Emmylou Harris, and their collaborative album, 's All the Roadrunning, was recorded during sessions spread over seven years.
