Dire Straits into the Rock and Roll HOF

I can't believe they weren't already in considering that "Sultans of Swing" from their self-titled debut was released in 1978.

Most people are embarrassed by their first concert but mine was Dire Straits at the (then) Brendan Byrne arena in New Jersey.  I saw them around 1985 and the "Brothers in Arms" tour with my buddy Mike.  Great show although at the time I didn't appreciate their full discography.
