67. Alan Clark - Dire Straits/Eric Clapton/Tina Turner

Listen on

Episode notes

Alan Clark joined Dire Straits as their first - and only full-time - keyboard player, playing with Mark Knopfler and Co from 1980 until they finally called it a day in 1995. But despite being in one of the world’s biggest bands of the era, playing Live Aid, headlining the Nelson Mandela Concert, being a multi-award winner and a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, that doesn’t tell half the story!

Alan also recorded and toured with many other legends including:

Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, George Harrison, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Roger Daltrey, Van Morrison, Brian Johnson (AC/DC) and Phil Collins!

In this episode you’ll hear Alan tell stories about working with some of these legends as well as a current line-up of former Dire Straits members performing as Dire Straits Legacy!

And for Top 5 fans – you’ll get my Top 5 favourite songs from one those incredible artists he’s worked with!
