Hal Andrew Lindes (born on June 30, 1953 in Monterey, California) is an English-American guitarist and film score composer. In 1980 he began recording a solo album with producer Al Kooper, along with Herbie Flowers on bass and John Bradbury (of The Specials) on drums. The project was halted mid-stream when Lindes received an invitation by Mark Knopfler to join the British rock band Dire Straits. Lindes became a full-time member of Dire Straits in 1981 while the band were promoting their third album, Making Movies. During his five year tenure with the group, Dire Straits grew from playing small clubs to performing in sold out stadiums. He featured in the their next album, 1982's Love Over Gold as well as the 1983 EP, titled ExtendedancEPlay and the live album Achemy Live. During this time Mark Knopfler was also involved with composing the music score for David Puttnam's 1983 film Local Hero, in which Lindes also performed on some of the cues. It was at this point that he discovered a passion for composing film soundtracks, and in early 1985, while Dire Straits were recording tracks for their Brothers In Arms album, Lindes left the band to compose film soundtracks full time.show more
