"Though he was at Glastonbury to promote an album recorded with his new band, Dire Straits bassist John Illsley still found time for a few classics during his Saturday afternoon performance at the Acoustic Stage. Looking every bit like a rock n roll Bill Nighy, Illsley launched into a ferocious rendition of Sultans of Swing, it could have been 1978 all over again." – Daily Telegraph, Glastonbury 2014: the best moments
