Agree.

It is kind of weird how he lowered his profile over the years after being so big early in the MTV era.

It is almost like he retired somewhere along the way, but I saw Dire Straits in their prime around 1986 and he was fantastic.


His recent "An Evening with Mark Knopfler" concerts were really great. Should be stuff on Youtube.

My parents took me to a Knopfler show back in 2010 or 2011 while I was still in High School. I had been playing guitar for about 2 or 3 years at that point, and was mostly in to hard rock (GnR, Van Halen, etc) and wasn’t familiar with DS really at all.

I remember he played Sultans as an encore, and it was the first time I’d heard it. It was definitely one of those “what was that!” moments — I’d never heard a guitar sound like that. Been a fan ever since.

Well deserved!

Not saying it's not deserving but I've always considered Nina Simone a jazz singer. Is she also in the Jazz Hall Of Fame?

I'd do anything - except to practice for many months - to have that right hand technique. I tried it a few times, but it probably takes many years to master. That's where that sound comes from and it's so versatile.

Jeff Beck is another guitarist that his unique style with the right hand. He basically abandoned picks 30 years ago, and the speed he gets with three fingers is remarkable. John Mayer ain't bad at that either.

Meanwhile, I'll continue using the good old pick.

Check out Richie Kotzen, he's one of the few modern guys who employs the "pickless" thing to great effect and really wails at it.

I think Jorma is the greatest of the surviving rock era guitarists. He was very underrated in his prime and he's still excellent now. Great finger picker as well. A Rev. Gary Davis protege.

As for deserving inductees Gram Parsons and .Roy Buchanan deserve to to be in or there is any justice.

Roy Buchanan was a great guitarist one of the greatest ever. Didn't care about fame. Great finger picker as well. Telecaster, cord, Fender Twin no pedals, no phase shifter, no pick.

Sweet Dreams

Gram Parsons was the father of country rock set the stage for the Eagles, et.al
Brought Emmymlou Harris to the world and got the Byrds kicked out of the Grand Ole Opry for going off script with this tune

Yes, of course. Great soloist as well. I find him to be quite underrated amongst guitar players/musicians.
