Considered by his peers to be one of the best guitarists in the world, he has played on over 450 albums and toured with an impressive list of the world's biggest artists; Think of a name, and Phil has probably played with that artist. One of those artists was Eric Clapton, whose band he joined in 1988 and where he met his Dire Straits bandmate Alan Clark.

ALAN CLARK – Keyboards - Alan joined Dire Straits in 1980 as the band's first keyboardist and then became the only member of the band, apart from Mark Knopfler, to play on every track the band made. Co-producer of the album "On Every Street", he was considered by his peers to be the musical director of Dire Straits, and his influence on the band's music is evident. In 2018, Alan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a significant member of Dire Straits. He has also played and recorded with a long list of other artists, including Bob Dylan, and has been a member of Eric Clapton's band and the musical director of Tina Turner.

DANNY CUMMINGS – Percussion and vocals - Danny joined Dire Straits as a percussionist in 1990 and played on the On Every Street album and tour and the live album On the Night.

MEL COLLINS – Saxophone - A sublime player and legend in the music world, Mel joined Dire Straits in 1982 and played on the Love over Gold album and tour, the Twisting by the Pool EP, and the iconic live album Alchemy.

MARCO CAVIGLIA – Lead guitar and vocals - In love with Dire Straits' music and one of the world's top authorities in this field, as well as one of the few guitarists talented enough to emulate Mark Knopfler's guitar style, Marco formed a band in 1988 to play the music, which later led him to tour with Mark Knopfler's partner, Steve Phillips, from the Notting Hillbillies. But his dream was to play with his "heroes" from Dire Straits, and that dream came true in 2007 when he played in northern Italy with Dire Straits members Alan Clark and John Illsley, and later with Phil Palmer, Pick Withers, Danny from Dire Straits. Cummings, Mel Collins, and Jack Sonni, and now he is one of the fantastic band that is DSL Dire Straits Legacy.

STEVE WALTERS – Bass and vocals - When he was young, Steve Walters, while dancing at a party with his parents, was approached by bass legend Phil Chen for a private guitar lesson. This sparked Steve's imagination in the world of bass guitar at the age of nine.

There, his interest in bass guitar led him to meet and study with Jaco Pastorius.
