Hello all, sorry I haven’t been in for ages, and don’t really have an excuse..
I had an extra­or­di­nary expe­ri­ence yes­terday, when my friend Tessa Grobel asked me to intro­duce Jon Snow (Baritone) and Alan Rusbridger (Piano) at the launch of ‘Music for Offices” at Christchurch Spitalfields. It’s an ini­tia­tive to get people in offices to learn instru­ments and start choirs or what­ever..
For non-​​​​Brits I should explain, Jon Snow is the Channel 4 News Anchor, and quite simply one of the finest jour­nal­ists this country has ever pro­duced, as well as just being a dude. Alan Rusbridger is editor of The Guardian, the left-​​​​liberal broad­sheet, and my news­paper of choice for 30 years.
I’ve got a couple of sort-​​​​of gigs coming up, in Leeds and Manchester at PMT Music shops, which is as a thank you to Mark Gooday and the good people at Ashdown Engineering, whose Amps I couldn’t live without.
Then of course July is my 21 date Australian onslaught…Really looking for­wards to that, it’s the first real tour I’ve ever done under my own name..
Hope all good with everyone.
Toodle pip!

    Oh hello, I have missed you.

  2. Phoenix - June 4, 2009 4:11 AM

    Excellent news, Guy! And get­ting folks inter­ested in and playing music is always a worth­while cause, IMHO.

    Hopefully this will snow­ball into a US tour cos we’d love to see ya too. 🙂

    Cheers,
    Nix.

  3. Eric - June 4, 2009 8:15 PM

    Add my vote for you to come visit the US! Reading your book now and would love to hear the sto­ries in person.

  4. Luca V. - June 6, 2009 1:44 PM

    Hello Guy,

    i just want to say to you THANKS. For all you have don in music. Especially for the time that you played with the band called Tears For Fears , without you cer­tain songs would never ever be the same. Your ”touch” of the string of the bass are great.

    thank you from an Italian Fan.

    Hi Guy
    ’Twas lovely bumping into you in Boots (the store, not the noted footwear) ear­lier today in Paddington, where you were, bass in hand (no wonder you get so many gigs!) and imper­son­ating Martin Amis. Good man. Being a com­plete imbe­cile, I forgot to men­tion that you should explore christo​pherrye​.com, because you have good ears. That’s all I’m going to say on the matter. Track two should do it.
    Keep playing those root notes… it never did Roger any harm. 🙂

    Guy,

    Great to hear about your Aussie tour… we’re still waiting for you here in the US!

  8. Mandala - June 9, 2009 3:28 PM

    Congratulations, good luck, and have fun with the Oz tour!! Cannot help thirding/​fourthing the vote for a US of A tour some­time in the future…would cer­tainly look for­ward to such a thing if it hap­pened. 🙂

  9. Ben - June 15, 2009 5:36 AM

    I’ll be buying tickets for both nights in Brisbane, just as soon as the venue actu­ally lets me!

  10. Craig Davidson - June 19, 2009 12:17 PM

    Hi

    Just seen you at PMT Leeds — most amusing 🙂

    good luck on the Aussie Tour!

  11. Mike Fife - June 23, 2009 11:38 PM

    Guy, it was great to see you at Leeds. Thanks for a good laugh and some inspiring bass.

    Good luck in Australia. My lad is over there so if you should bump into him, tell him to ring his mother.

    Cheers

    Mike

  12. Mick - July 15, 2009 1:10 AM

    Guy,

    Great show in Melbourne Last night. You made me laugh till my face ached.

    You have inspired me to try harder at my bass playing — disco is far too cool to miss out on playing (yes, i am option b — my playing is cur­rently rub­bish).

    Hope you get over your jet lag — you looked absolutely trashed at the end of the night.

    Thanks for a great birthday present

    Regards

    Mick

    Guy,

    Fantastic show in Dublin on Saturday. Was hanging on your every word. It was obvious that you though that the show was not going down well but as part of the audi­ence, I can say that it was simply that the audi­ence wasn’t sure when to clap as your act con­sisted of rem­i­nis­cences rather than jokes, but were enjoying it all non­the­less (apart from one chap who looked like his wife dragged him along). Great show & please come back soon.

    Colm
