Dire Straits’ lead guitarist and vocalist, Mark Knopfler, explained why he is one of the greatest musicians in the world by sharing a new post on his official Instagram account.

In the post, you can see that Mark shared an old picture which he was on the stage with another guitarist, Chet Atkins. They both look so young in the picture and enjoying their company on the stage.

Furthermore, Mark wrote in the caption that he has collaborated with many musicians for the guitar sessions, recordings, and many more in years and showed how a complete and versatile musician he is.

Additionally, Mark created a tracklist on Spotify, which contains specials songs with the other musicians that Mark collaborated within years. Bob Dylan, Sting, and Chet Atkins are three of the many musicians on that list.

“Mark has worked with many fellow artists over the years; from guitar session work, features and collaboration projects, to songwriting and producing albums.
