Dire Straits Mourn Loss of Guitarist Jack Sonni


Dire Straits have announced their guitarist Jack Sonni has died unexpectedly at the age of 68 yesterday.

The news was revealed in an online post by the veteran British rockers – which included a photo and the message “Rest In Peace“.

The popular musician proved to be a great foil for the band’s front man Mark Knopfler’s in Dire Straits 80’s heyday during the band’s Brothers in Arms era which widened their appeal.

Earlier this week, a group of musicians who formerly toured with the band announced he’d been suffering from ill health.
