Dire Straits, indeed (Sorry but I couldn’t resist writing that)!

Mark Knopfler hurt in crash
Former Dire Straits frontman Mark Knopfler was rushed to hospital after a motorbike accident, a hospital spokeswoman said on Monday.
The BBC reports the 53-year-old singer and guitarist was taken by ambulance to St. Thomas’ Hospital, central London, where he was treated for a broken collar bone and six broken ribs.
The spokeswoman said he was in a stable condition and had been discharged from the hospital.
Knopfler was riding a Honda motorcycle when he was involved in a collision with a Fiat Punto car in London’s smart Belgravia district in mid-morning traffic.
The car’s female driver was unhurt, police said.
Knopfler enjoyed a string of hits with 1980s supergroup Dire Straits including “Sultans of Swing” and “Money for Nothing.”
He is due to begin a European concert tour in April.
