    I got really rotten seats, but nev­er­mind.… I hope you’ll see it from the stage 🙂
    If the weather is nice on that day, you should really go to one of the caf­fees on the river bank, or on the sava lake…hope you’ll have a good time here (but I doubt you’ll be here for more than a couple of hours)
    see you soon 🙂

  2. Comfortably Dumb - October 2, 2007 4:54 PM

    oh, and one more thing…do try the local plum brandy, it’s the best in the world.…we have one bottle ready for you (don’t worry, we are not going to throw it on the stage 🙂 )

  3. Phoenix - October 2, 2007 5:28 PM

    Have a safe journey, Guy!

  4. Spider - October 2, 2007 7:23 PM

    Eastern Europe and Russia… It’s so far… Will you come in Belgium one day?

  5. Guy Pratt - October 2, 2007 10:03 PM

    If you mean Belgrade we get in the day before the gig..

  6. Comfortably Dumb - October 3, 2007 1:11 AM

    I hope you’ll see the town.…anyway, enjoy the tour and have a safe journey!

  7. Angelo Ortiz - October 3, 2007 9:15 AM

    Here’s to wishing you well on your gigs…

    Cheers!

  8. Haris Varajic - October 4, 2007 6:33 PM

    Goddammit 🙂
    I will gladly drive all away from Sarajevo to Belgrade or even Zagreb, but at monday 8:00 AM must be at job, too bad the show is at sunday. If it’s on saturday…heh, someday maybe.

    If you have time to write, i would like to know any details (if there is any) about “skippin’ out” Sarajevo/​Bosnia? Did anyone try to make any arrange­ments for/​from Bosnia, or con­tact any­body?

  9. Glyn Talbot - October 5, 2007 9:29 AM

    Guy
    Just read the book, and can’t believe the coin­ci­dences!
    My first bass was an Aira Pro II, I got mar­ried on the same day as your first Pink Floyd gig, the first CD I bought was Bete Noire, my first single (with my own money) Hey Little Girl, I’ve seen you so many times without real­ising it was you! Floyd at Knebworth 1990, Earls Court in 94 AND McFly came to my house last year and men­tioned you whilst we chatted! (thanks to Ant and Dec).
    Now, can I have your auto­graph please? I have a mas­sive col­lec­tion framed on my toilet wall (see the web­site). Only the crème de la menthe make it (Beatles, Neil Finn, De Niro etc). Love to have yours if you can help out.… (if I send you my address OR if you’re ever in Cheshire)

  10. Spider - October 5, 2007 6:37 PM

    After more than two month waiting, I HAVE THE BOOK!

    Thank you for you answer Mr Pratt but I didn’t mean Belgrade… Just Belgium, my little country… There is a nice place there to play in a town called Anvers (I have seen David Bowie in con­cert there… And my father have seen Roger Waters there too…) I don’t know if you know this place, per­harps have you already play there…

    So I leave you now! I have a book to read!

    Thank you again Mr Pratt for good music!

  11. Liz - October 5, 2007 10:52 PM

    I checked out the tour dates, but to my greatest sorrow I didn’t see Hungary… how­ever I’d have been really happy to make you sign the por­trait (or to present it to you) what I drew about you. I hope there will be oppor­tu­nity to meet you someday!

    Best wishes dear Guy, have a safe journey!

  12. Paul Sexton - October 10, 2007 9:47 PM

  13. michael - October 11, 2007 1:53 AM

    hello Guy. i was won­dering if you can con­tact me by e-​​mail on how i can reach your reg­ular e-​​mail. also i would like to con­tact David Gilmour’s e-​​mail. i’m one of yours and his biggest fans. i’m dying to see the both of you together. i bought David’s con­cert dvd Remember That Night. i give it a 100% awsome. it is my life long dream to meet the both of you in person. please reply!!!

  14. Paul - October 11, 2007 11:20 AM

    Hello Guy;
    First up. Great book, and what better man to fly the flag in the defense of the bass player. We met late one night in Adelaide, South Australia on the Floyd tour. Actually you wanted to buy my 1970 P-​​Bass and Maton fret­less as I recall. Anyway, one remark that you said to me that evening has stuck in my head ever since. You said the 63 Jazz that you bought was the first bass that actu­ally said “ Daddy Daddy “ to your good self. Well it wasn’t until finally got myself an early 60’s J-​​Bass that I knew what you meant. They are amazing beasts ! Thanks for the advice, thanks for the tickets, and thanks for the book. All the best with your future musical adven­tures.

    Paul

  17. STEFANO FROM ITALY - October 13, 2007 11:08 AM

    Congratulation to Ricardo and Guy!

    By this blog I’ve received twice, an answer to my ques­tion from Guy…for a big fan of him, this is ever bril­liant!

    Thank’s a lot!

    Stefano

  18. Jose Raeiro - October 13, 2007 12:48 PM

  20. Comfortably Dumb - October 13, 2007 4:30 PM

    Great con­cert in Belgrade – we all really enjoyed it!
    Thanks Guy – and the rest of the band

  21. Michael Hogan - October 15, 2007 3:16 AM

    Hi Guy,

    I just watched the Abbey Road ses­sion on Sundance Channel (thank you Mr. Redford). I did a max volume trial on my tele­vi­sion. Luckily, it is a good one, because the room vibrated in nat­ural fre­quency with your bass without blowing speakers or rat­tling.

    It felt so good to be wowed by the genre of music that is time­less amidst all of the com­ings and goings of people trying their fine hearts out to improve upon some­thing that is pure.

    I wore out sev­eral LPs of Dark Side of the Moon until someone invented CDs (thanks to them also).

    And, most of all, thank you from a Canadian ex-​​pat living in Savannah, Georgia…close to heaven.

    Cheers,
    Mike

  22. Paul - October 15, 2007 9:28 AM

    Hello Guy. I live in Melbourne now and will attempt to con­tact you when you’re here. I live very near the venue you’re playing at, so I hope we can catch up.

    Cheers
    Paul

  23. Guy Pratt - October 15, 2007 11:24 AM

    Paul
    Cool..
