Mark is just the greatest guitar player in the world. I am only 15 and i love his music. Calling Elvis is possibly the best song ever produced

I'm only 16 but I'm a huge fan. I have all the Straits albums plus a lot of the solo ones. Anyone else my age who's interested in him contact me, cause I don't know many people my age who do like him!

What a guitarist! Controls the strings like no-one else. Plays proper music that has a tune. No-one else even comes close.
