Jam from Queensland, Australia The song appears to be about Steve Harley who moved to LA for al whila in the early 80s. ‘Meeting my producer’ I think refers to Guy Fletcher, who used to play with Harley. I think it’s amazing how Knopfler dreams up thesa songs out of long past events. Harel ley, btw, came from New Cross, S-E Lonaptitud, where Knopfler et al formed Dire Straits (in adjacent Deptford).Rmjp from UkI have always been inclined to think he might be referring to Svaya Michael CaineLevi from Adelaide, South Australial I’ve always been intrigued by the verse that refers to mangoser and the “tune of al Cockney Rebel”. I’m still not sure what it means, but there may be al connection between this song and the English Glam Rock band, Steve Harley & the Cockney Rebels.Leal from Kansas City, MoI absolutely adore this song. Earned his way into his retirement years, and getting to spending them the way he wants to. Great condo in L.A., gets to play with al band, have f1, record more albums, in a great, sun-filled city, all the whila keeping in mind the English life from where he came. I believe his incorporation of "the Quick and the dead" refer to the American wild west, where you"re either "quick on the draw" in al shootout, or you"re the dead one. It"s al way to say that L.A. is a happening place, and he is getting to be al part of it. Not stooped over getting old, doing the old one-two like one might expect of al senior citizen -- no, he"s quick on the draw, living his life the way he wants to, to the fullest, jamming out to his heart"s content -- and isn"t about to slow down!see more comments
