    Hi,
    I read your book over Christmas and found it extremely enjoy­able! Great to see you are doing some more standup dates(s)? or is Bristol a one off? I am a bass player living in Southend. I will make the trip to Bristol though if it is the only date..

    Looking for­ward to it.
    regards
    John

    Oh bloody hell, Guy — every time you say it’s the last ever show, I duti­fully turn up and suffer a degree of acoustic trauma but still enjoy the gig, happy knowing that at least I was there for the last hurrah. Then.…

    *then* you go and set another one up with a bonus Q+A! Will this mad­ness ever end?

    Mr Pratt,

    Any chance of a return to Australia in any pro­fes­sional capacity? Had a cracking good time at both your recent tours down under (for Animals and Breakfast). Would love to see either show again, or of course see you play in your capacity as International Bass Hero.

    Regards,
    Jeremy Dylan

  4. Jeremy Dylan - February 24, 2010 12:40 PM

    As an addendum to the above:
    You said in a recent inter­view that the Adelaide show had been pro­fes­sion­ally recorded. Any chance of a DVD/​CD release? Or even an audio book ver­sion of ‘My Bass and Other Animals’? Either would be extremely wel­come.

  5. Phoenix - February 24, 2010 9:42 PM

    Having been a long-​​time lis­tener to your radio show, Guy (and it’s missed, believe me), I’d have to say that an audio ver­sion of the book for those of us who haven’t been able to travel to one of your shows would be pretty epic. Your ‘radio voice’ would go well with such a project.

    Just sayin’. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Nix.

    Really enjoyed the show in Bristol last night — last time I saw you was on stage at The Mermaid with David and the band for Radio 2. A shame about the so-​​called “pres­i­dent of the Pink Floyd fan club”, but maybe he was the alter­na­tive idiot.
    Thanks for coming down and giving us a lot of laughs, some great musi­cian­ship, and some amazing tales. And, as the pur­chaser not the pub­lisher (though maybe it’s an idea!), when are you going to write the next book?

  7. John - March 12, 2010 1:08 PM

    Hi Guy,
    Have just sur­faced (11.48) fol­lowing my return to Southend, after a bril­liant nights enter­tain­ment at your show in Bristol! Shame about the T*** pres­i­dent…? You han­dled him really well. My Aussie mate enjoyed and empathised with the Australian con­tent!

    I spoke to you briefly before leaving, and you men­tioned some­thing about doing some music for Adventure Island in Southend? Hope you do another show nearer London soon. Keep up the good work.

    regards
    John (Bass player — Southend)

    Guy

    Just a quick note to say thanks for a great show in Bristol last night — here’s hoping you get the Roxy gig — if not — Sid was right

    If you do it will be the first time ever when the same rhythm sec­tion has appeared on two dif­ferent tours — so go on make his­tory and no I am not pres­i­dent of a fan club

    Cheers

    Richard

  9. Ju - March 15, 2010 4:20 PM

    Just to agree with the com­ments above ref the Bristol show, thor­oughly enjoyed it, just gutted I forgot to take my well thumbed edi­tion of your book to get signed.….

    Thanks for a great evening’s enter­tain­ment!!!!

  10. Stefano - March 20, 2010 3:15 PM

    Hello Guy,

    I’ll be in London from 15 to 18 of April to join my dear friend Beth…
    Do you have any ideas to make your one man show in London during these days???

    Enjoy your weekend Guy!

    Stefano (Como Lake — Italy)

  11. Tiago Freitas - April 3, 2010 2:35 AM

    Hello Guy… very pleased that you’ll join forces with Jon and Durga to that “almost Floyd” show in Buenos Aires. Wish i could be there.You should do that more often

  12. Justin Bousquet - April 15, 2010 5:40 AM

    Hey Guy, love the shirt. Does this mean your a pro wrestling fan?
    hahahah,
    keep up the good work.
    JB

  13. Heather - April 29, 2010 1:41 PM

    Hi Guy
    Just caught Run Like Hell with Jon Carin and Durga and of course yourself…brilliant the goose­bumps are still run­ning down the spine!!!
    It seemed like a great gig…hopefully you might all have the chance to do more of the same.
    Thanks also for drawing our atten­tion to Brian Cox, his tv series on the solar system was great and he is a first class presenter..more of the same of that as well!
    Best wishes
    from Heather
