Why Mark Knopfler Didn't Come To The Hall Of Fame Ceremony!!

He just didn't feel like coming, it's as simple as that," he tells Billboard. "It just didn't appeal to him, and I appealed to him on several occasions. I said, 'Look, I'd love you to get your head around this.' He said, 'Look, I just can't do it, John. I'm really sorry. It's a great honor for us and all the rest of it, and I just can't get my head around it,' so I've just got to respect it. He's got his reasons, which he really doesn't want to share with me which is unusual because we've shared most things over the years."  Illsley adds that Knopfler said, 'Look, I just can't deal with it. I don't really want to deal with it.' So I said, 'OK, I'll go over, accept the award on your behalf and all the rest of the guys that aren't there and that'll be it. So that's what's happening."  Illsley noted that he does have "room in the case" to bring Knopfler's induction trophy back to England!!
