The “Sultans Of Swing” Actually Existed

It’s funny how bands and songwriters get song ideas.  

Sometimes everything is made up, and sometimes songs originate from real life experiences.  I mean “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”…..well, that’s a whole other story.

But Dire Strait’s song “The Sultans of Swing”……that’s based on a true story.  A band that Mark Knopfler actually saw in concert, and it was quite the experience.
