ARIA Hall of Fame



I’m delighted to report that Iva Davies came round to per­son­ally deliver my ARIA Hall of Fame award,earned for my time in Icehouse. It’s actu­ally a very nice thing, although incred­ibly pointy and heavy. If anyone breaks into my house and it’s to hand I fear I may kill them.

    Congratulations, Guy!

    It’s better to use that than your bass. Evidence lockers are not a good place for gui­tars. Not that I would know from per­sonal expe­ri­ence, mind you.

    😀

  3. Karen - December 13, 2006 2:12 AM

    Hey Guy,

    Congratulations on award, they tele­vised Iva’s pre­sen­ta­tion of the award, here in oz.

    He has of recent thrown out a little tit bit; saying Icehouse may get together for a bit of a tour next year, for nos­talgia.

    You won’t be joining them?

    Karen.

  4. lorraine - December 13, 2006 12:51 PM

    Congratulations!

    .….. and you may have another award coming your way in the very near future.

  5. Mat - December 13, 2006 2:25 PM

    Congratulations Guy. I’m sorry but I just voted in the DG web site for you in the shame­less self pro­mo­tion cat­e­gory. I hope you take the voting from us DG’ers as its intended…just a bit of fun, we luv you really 🙂

    Maybe you’ll get another award if you win?

    Cool web site by the way.

    Are you likely to take your show on the road any­where near Berkshire? Sounds like a blast!

    Cheers…Mat

  6. Guy Pratt - December 13, 2006 5:39 PM

    Next May I start a full UK Tour..

  7. Paul B - December 13, 2006 7:28 PM

    Heya Guy! Congrats on the award. Well deserved! Im really looking for­ward to the book and hope­fully a DVD of your show as I am now living in Mexico City where I guess it is unlikely you’ll be per­forming right?

    Funny thing. Should you ever find your­self in a tight spot, I had a bass player offer me $500 US for the pick you gave me over at Massey Hall in Toronto. $500! Can you believe it? Still, Im proud to say I declined and proudly keep you pick and Stevies drum­stick on dis­play in my studio. (Now I only hope this guy keeps coming back for more ses­sions just to try to con­vince me 🙂 )

  8. Karen - December 14, 2006 1:24 AM

    Hi,

    Do you have your tour agenda for next year as of yet ?

    Karen.

  9. Guy - December 14, 2006 5:50 PM

    Karen
    no, but will post it here as soon as..

  10. Paul Sexton - December 14, 2006 7:27 PM

    Sorry to be a pain Guy but is N.Ireland on your list?

  11. Phoenix - December 14, 2006 7:54 PM

    Guy, thanks for the DG cha­t­room visit. Sorry if we were a bit over­whelming. Hopefully your next visit will be less fre­netic (yup, using the BIG WORDS today).

    Happy hol­i­days to you and your family!

    Phoenix.

  12. Guy Pratt - December 14, 2006 11:22 PM

    I played Belfast last year!

    Please don’t keep asking me where I’m playing, as I will put the dates up on the site as soon as they’re finalised.
    Cheers
    Guy

  13. Paul Sexton - December 15, 2006 12:10 AM

    Apologies, i didn’t see it adver­tised at the time.….……

    It could be worse, no one asks!.

  14. Guy Pratt - December 16, 2006 12:28 AM

    True enough

  15. Rob - December 16, 2006 3:43 AM

    Well, Guy, if that is your real name, you gotta do what you gotta do and if blu­geoning someone in order to save the day is nec­es­sary then God speed.

    Congrats! Always nice to have some­thing weighty to keep the mantel-​​piece down.

    Sincerely,
    A Canuck Bass Player.

    p.s. Come to Canada, if only so I can buy you a beer or 12.

  16. Guy - December 16, 2006 12:02 PM

    Of course it’s my real name!

  17. Renee - December 18, 2006 3:35 AM

    Congrats on the award. Hope you and your family have a very happy hol­iday.

    Renee

  18. Roland - December 20, 2006 12:25 AM

    I’d like to become more familiar with your work with Icehouse back in the early 80s. If you had to select ONE Icehouse album that best show­cased your con­tri­bu­tion to the band, which one would it be?

  19. Guy Pratt - December 20, 2006 6:10 PM

    Measure for Measure

  20. Simon J - December 21, 2006 5:08 PM

    Hello there Mr. Pratt!

    Congratulations on the award, You deserve it buddy. Must be a great honour for you. Excellent news.

    The website’s looking excellent-​​a, Glad to see many Gilmour reg­u­lars coming here and sup­porting the site. As we say in Wales, Fandabbi-​​dosie.

    Right then Guy, I’m off now to have a few drinks now before I go out for a xmas party tonight. Happy Days.

    One ques­tion — Have you got David any­thing?

    All the best, Simon J
