Side 2 - MY LIFE IN DIRE STRAITS
Dire Straits legend JOHN ILLSLEY returns to Vintage Rock Pod to tell me about the busy year he's had following the release of his highly acclaimed autobiography "My Life In Dire Straits" and ahead of his new studio album "VIII" and tour. We talk all about his friendship with Mark Knopfler, how Mark was involved in the book and audiobook, themes for the new album, what to expect from the intimate tour and potentially exciting news about previously unreleased Dire Straits material!
Also on this episode we discuss the newly announced 2022 Nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with award winning American comedian, and HOF super fan, JOE KWACZALA! He co-hosts the podcast "Who Cares About the Rock Hall" so definitely knows what he's talking about!
Plus you'll hear my Top 5 songs from one of this years Rock Hall nominees too!
