    I’m waiting with impa­tience…

    Bye Bye

    Wow…I like what you (or your web­master 😉 ) have done with the place, Guy! This is very nifty…tis always nice to know I’m not the only one who thinks black is a nice and read­able back­ground color. Just seems like it’s not used as often as one would think it would be.

    Sounds like you’re having a great time down under! Adrian Belew?! I am so jealous…what I’d give to be able see him and/​or King Crimson live one day. Which reminds me that I STILL need to get the Deja VROOOM and Eyes Wide Open DVDs. Especially the latter, as much as I love the Power To Believe album, and believe it to be just as under­rated and great as the Discipline lineup’s work.

    Looking for­ward to reading more about your time in Oz! 🙂

    Glad you’re having fun and everything’s going well. I haven’t checked in an atlas or any­thing but isn’t 5.30pm UK time about 3.30am Australia time?

    I know you’re on the other side of the world but do you know what time slot planet rock put your show on? I missed Sunday’s and the Planet Rock’s new web­site hasn’t got a working listen again fea­ture yet, but more impor­tantly their on-​​air schedule has gone back to saying that you’re on from 7 till 9pm. Don’t sup­pose you know if you’ve been shifted again or if it’s just out of date do you? It’s all get­ting a bit con­fusing.

    Hope every­thing car­ries on going well.

    The things DJs will do to ensure they still do their shows, even when they’re away.

    Back in the day, before the internet (or teh intar­webs as geeks tend to refer to it), it’d just simply have to be someone recording their show and mailing it (mail! what a con­cept!) to their radio sta­tion and praying it got there on time. Now, it’s as easy as having a laptop with music on it, a headset with a mic, and an internet con­nec­tion to your station’s server. Maybe not that /​simple/​, but the basic con­cept is there…

    It’s quite inter­esting to see this change of tech­nology and methods occur­ring in, say, the past 20 years.

    Cheers,
    Nix.

  5. Karen - December 6, 2008 1:54 AM

    Welcome back.

    I will be there on the 12th.

  6. Lawrence - December 6, 2008 2:26 AM

    Guy
    I’d just like to say huge thanks for taking the time to chat to my wife and I the other night, It was a real honour plea­sure for me to finally meet you after many years of fol­lowing and admiring your work. Your show was fan­tastic and a bloody good laugh, my wife and I are really looking for­ward to seeing Phat Bottom End this after­noon I’m sure you’ll put on great show.
    It’s great to have here in Adelaide I can only hope you had time to get up to the Barossa Valley and sam­pled cop­ulas amount of the local liquid prod­ucts.
    Thanks again Guy hope you enjoyed Adelaide,it would great to see you down here per­forming again some­time in the future.
    Regards
    Lawrence

    I’ve been lucky enough to have seen Derek play twice…what a guitar player!!!!

  8. James - December 8, 2008 1:43 AM

    Hey Guy,

    It was great to see your “My Bass & Other Animals” show on the 4th. Was very suprised to see how ner­vous you were. I think most people loved the show! Yes the Adelaide crowd was quiet but they were enjoying it. Your show is great so relax when you per­form it!
    Cheers for the chat to.

    James

  9. kerrie - December 8, 2008 12:50 PM

    Hi Guy,
    I saw your stand-​​up in Adelaide last week. You have many great sto­ries and I tried to keep up, but you were on fire!! I know, I know, I’ll have to read the book, but couldn’t get one at the fes­tival. The magic of the internet should be able to solve that problem though. I lis­tened in awe to the 2 songs you played/​wrote at the start of phat bottom end — absolutely beau­tiful, thank you so much.

  10. Torgeir Røyset - December 18, 2008 1:58 AM

    Hey Guy,

    since you seem to be touring the hell out the world at the moment; when will you visit Scandinavia — or to be more pre­cise: Norway?

  11. Heather - December 18, 2008 2:37 PM

    Hi Guy, just a brief note to wish you and your family a Merry hol­iday and all the very best for 2009. Keep up the good work and hope we will be in a posi­tion to see you per­form live again in 2009. Very best wishes from Phil and Heather

  12. Dave Jones - December 20, 2008 2:08 AM

    Happy Holidays Guy. Wishing you all the best.

    Did you ever figure out why the Russians went bonkers over the empty upside down shoes during Us and Them?

    Cheers

    Dave from Idaho

  13. Lorenzo - December 20, 2008 6:20 PM

    A Merry merry Christmas and Happy new year to you and your family.

    A spe­cial greeting to RICHARD.

    Bye Bye
    See you in the new year.

  14. Karen - December 22, 2008 1:12 AM

    Hello Guy,

    Sorry to hear that there were a few downers with Australian tour, espe­cially the book issue.

    I have to say how­ever, Sydney loved you, the whole audi­ence had an excel­lent time, and we really would have loved some more, I really hope you enjoyed it and it topped every­thing of for you.

    Thanks for the quick chat after­wards and sorry to see you go so soon.

    But again you were so so great, so please come back again.

    Merry Christmas.

  15. Phoenix - December 24, 2008 12:24 AM

    Happy hol­i­days to you and your family, Guy, and to all the blog­gers who stop in here! Everyone have a safe and healthy hol­iday and a most excel­lent new year!

    Cheers,
    Nix.
