    Bring me back some good borscht. 😉

    (Seriously, tho, safe journey, Guy.)

    Have fun Guy, i wonder if Putin has replaced the KGB tea-​​sellers yet? (Just don’t men­tion the war! oh hang on, wrong country) You aren’t going by a hire car Mercedes through Europe are you?

    Finished the book this week and i promptly started reading it again, in case i missed any­thing the first time round. It’ll brighten up a lot of peo­ples christmas thats for sure.

    Have fun! I hope the weather will be not so cold…

    Hello Guy. Not sure how to con­tact you when you are in Melbourne later this month. How about sending me a mes­sage through my MySpace site, and when you’re in town, we can debate the subtle dif­fer­ences between the 62 and 63 J-​​Basses over a bevvie.

    Also.…was the Maton Fretless a boat anchor ?.….well it dis­ap­peared once the Wal fret­less came along !

    Hope all is going well.

    Musically

    You got to get one of them Cossack hats. Enjoy your time in Moscow any way.

  6. Paul Sexton - November 8, 2007 12:54 AM

    Do you know who the Bass player is on the sound­track of Oceans 13?, it’s funky stuff.Just watched the movie.
    Paul

  7. Ellenium - November 10, 2007 12:19 AM

    Oh my god, it was amazing! Thank you so much! I’ll never forget these evenings, and hope see you in Moscow again 😉

    PS: I’d say more, but my eng­lish is awful =) Once again, thanks a lot!!!

  8. Guy - November 10, 2007 12:52 AM

    I meant to ask Leo Abrahams, who played on that movie, who it was, but I forgot! Sorry…
    Ellenium, thank you..

  9. jim - November 10, 2007 2:39 PM

    Guy — just fin­ished your book — really enjoyed it and now reading again to pick up bits I missed! After watching you play a MM Stingray years ago, I have finally realised my dream and got one myself! Thanks for sharing.…. Jim

  10. Chris Collis - November 12, 2007 6:14 AM

    Hi Guy,

    I’ve been a fan since Delicate Sound Of Thunder and have just fin­ished reading your book which, I must say, has had me laughing out loud more than a few times.
    I also just saw ‘Remember That Night’. A ter­rific DVD but just not enough shots of the bass player. (tell ‘em I said so).
    In your book you men­tion using a pick on occa­sion but in this most recent dvd you seem to play the entire gig with a pick.…blisters from the night before?

    Cheers

    Chris

    P.S. is that really you on Facebook?

  11. Guy Pratt - November 15, 2007 8:25 PM

    Look again! I only use a pick on the old Floyd num­bers..
