Fact: Rock supergroup Dire Straits are back in vogue - cult country star Shooter Jennings has recorded a version of their WALK OF LIFE as his new single, while rockers The Killers have cut a cover of the band's ROMEO + JULIET for their upcoming album SAWDUST.
Quote: "Dire Straits' MONEY FOR NOTHING was about Motley Crue - `Money for nothing and the chicks for free... That little faggot got his own jet airplane.' They were in a store that sells televisions, and there was a row of TVs all playing Motley Crue - and that's where it came from. Isn't that great?" Nikki Sixx is flattered by Dire Straits' odd tribute to his band.
