John Illsley of Dire Straits: Wednesday 9th October at Paris 15, Calle la Orotava, Malága. As one of the founding band members, with guitarist brothers Mark and David Knopfler, and drummer Pick Withers, Illsley played a role in the development of Dire Straits’ sound. By the time the group disbanded in 1995 changes in personnel meant that Illsley and lead singer Mark Knopfler were the only two original band members remaining. Illsley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Dire Straits in 2018.
Illsley has produced two albums of his own, with Mark Knopfler as a guest musician, and has helped with Mark’s personal projects and charities.
John will be appearing with his own band with guitarist Robbie McIntosh (The Pretenders, Paul McCartney John Mayer), he will be playing Dire Straits classics as well as songs from his latest solo album, ‘Long shadows’. Info&Tix

Lost & Found

Lost- Cordless vacuum: I know it’s a very long shot but I cleaned my car on Saturday and left the cordless vacuum cleaner on a bench in Calle Monte Alegre Torrox. It was gone when I checked back later. I have the charger so it’s no use when it runs down.
Very embarrassed Mark/Torrox 618495346
