Top 10 Rock Songs About Musical Scenes or GenresThis is just a list of songs which deal with different kinds of music scenes from different eras.
This song literally describes the music scene of 1980's glam metal. Knopfler here criticizes the glam metal musicians for leading a lavish lifestyle without working hard.
I would have to say I kind of disagree with him. On the one hand I’m with him that the lifestyles of the rich and famous are pretty excessive however specifically criticising the musicians of a particular genre and also suggesting they didn’t need to work hard to get there seems disingenuous. Good list by the way.
Again, Mark Knopfler here talks about a small jazz band singing at a pub. They are not famous because they don't play mainstream rock music.
Good to have you back! This is a pretty solid list.

It is probably about Rory Gallagher himself. He talks about listening to blues songs all the day in a bar. He is isolated from everybody.

There's a smile all around the room,

But I sit here with the blues. from everybody and devotes himself to music"
