Hello all
Just thought I’d pop in. Sorry I’ve been so remiss..
Had a mad bout of travel after Australia, including a trip to Switzerland to do 2 shows with Jon Lord and a 100 piece Orchestra. Splendid fun, I love playing with Jon..
Nothing much hap­pening for a while, so just hun­kering down at home and trying not to get depressed about the weather..
Although I sup­pose there’s much to be pleased about with the new shape of the world post-​​​​Obama…
pip pip!
Guy

    Hi,

    I can see that you are very busy, do you past a good Christmas Holiday?

    I saw the pre­vious post and I would like come to see you at the “20th Theatre” but for my mis­for­tune I can not come in London 🙁

    I’m in the same sit­u­a­tion about weather in my country… it’s transmit depres­sion.

    About the world post-​​Obama, I don’t know… but we can only wait and see…

    Bye Bye
    Lorenzo.

  2. karen - January 23, 2009 5:22 PM

    after­noon Guy,

    seems i may be able to attend ’ Notting Good Taste 2

    how­ever i wont be able to listen to your radio show, how bad is that i am in london and have no way of actally lis­tening the show

  3. Caroline - January 23, 2009 6:15 PM

    Hello, hello Guy!

    I hate to say that I too won’t be able to attend ‘Notting Good Taste 2′…not unless I can pull a ‘Marty Hopkirk’ and ‘blink’ my way to London from my abode here in Virginia. 😉 And that said, I obvi­ously would adorn the audi­ence with my pres­ence if I could…but the best I can do for now is wish you nothing but the best for you and the show. 🙂

    Speaking of shows, I have to con­fess that I didn’t listen to all of your Planet Rock show this past Sunday…I ended up recording it, and am hoping to finally listen to it tonight. Been ridicu­lously busy lately…but I think that will some­what sub­side a little now, and will cer­tainly do my best to listen to your show live this upcoming Sunday.

    As for the weather…I don’t think it could get any worst than being in the teens-​​single digits for DAYTIME tem­per­a­tures like it did here over the last couple of weeks!! *shivers* Usually, I like the colder weather months more than warm, but that very much got me clam­ouring for Spring to arrive here ASAP.

    - Caroline

    Hi there, Mr. Pratt!

    I am looking for an ambient sound­track that I heard in a (BBC?) TV-​​broadcast that was cred­ited to you. I wonder if you have made this track (and sim­ilar music) public for lis­teners? I also would like to know more about its record­ings.

    I also wonder if there was any record­ings left after your father-​​in-​​law, men­tioned as his third solo album. I hope you doesn’t mind I am asking it in this blog.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Best regards,
    Peter Harold,
    Sweden

  10. Caroline - February 23, 2009 1:37 AM

    I’m sad to say that I am not really expecting a response to this, but as they say, if ya don’t ask…

    Does anyone here happen to have the first half of today’s episode of Guy’s Planet Rock show recorded? I recorded the show due to my being out and about all after­noon, and either the PR player or Audacity screwed up. Either way, I’ve got only the last 54 min­utes of the show… *sighs*

    If anyone does have the show, at least the first half, please e-​​mail me at mandala4444​@​gmail.​com.

    BTW, in what I’ve heard of the those 54 min­utes, awe­some that you played Little Feat, Guy. 🙂 Actually wild you did that, con­sid­ering that for some reason a day or two ago, I was thinking it would be cool if you played Lowell George and Co…

    - Caroline

  11. Thomas Robinson - February 24, 2009 4:24 PM

    Caroline i’m afraid i didn’t record the show but i thought this might help:

    http://​medi​aweb​.mus​i​cradio​.com/​p​l​a​y​e​r​/​d​e​f​a​u​l​t​.​a​s​p​?​s​=​47​&​a​m​p​;​e=0

    It’s the old planet rock web player, and the listen again fea­ture still gets updated but there’s no link to it from planet rock’s web­site for some reason. Sorry if it’s no better than what you’ve already got.

  12. Bran - February 24, 2009 8:20 PM

    Hello Guy!

    Any news from the Gilmour camp?

    2006 is ancient his­tory.
    Those barn jam bits sounded quite promising…

    Cheers!

  13. Caroline - February 24, 2009 9:06 PM

    Thomas!! You’re awe­some!! That is GREAT!!!! And not just from the stand­point of sit­u­a­tions like mine, but also gen­eral listening…I don’t know what Planet Rock thought was wrong with the old player in the first place. To be honest, I have not been enam­ored with the new player since it has been implemented…it’s a huge pain to record from when I can’t be avail­able to listen. And when I do try to listen live, I am often forced to reset the player (annoy­ingly Windows Media Player based…there’s a reason I prefer just about any other media player over that stoopid thing) at least once, if not twice during the pro­gram. I never, NEVER had any of those prob­lems with the old player.

    Anyway, I can’t thank you enough, Thomas…I’m book­marking that sucker when I get home from work.

    - Caroline

  14. Phoenix - February 25, 2009 12:24 AM

    Thomas, you’re a life­saver! I’ve been missing that Listen Again fea­ture some­thing fierce. Wish I’d known about it last month, else I’d’ve kept my oth­er­wise per­fect record in catching the show.

    Cheers.

  15. Karen - February 25, 2009 6:31 PM

    I have to say thank you Thomas as well, as I have ended up missing a few shows.

  16. Thomas Robinson - February 25, 2009 7:11 PM

    I’m glad that the link proved to be useful. I would’ve posted it ear­lier but i only dis­cov­ered it still worked a few days ago when i was sorting out some old book­marks that i hadn’t used in a while.

    What i don’t under­stand is why it’s updated but planet rock don’t put a link to it on their web­site.

  17. James - February 26, 2009 2:13 AM

    Hey Guy,

    Wondering if you got a call from Iva to do a gig in a few weeks?
    Icehouse are reforming for a Charity gig to raise money for the Bushfire and Flood vic­tims.

    Cheers

  18. Guy - February 27, 2009 8:46 PM

    James

    I haven’t been asked to do the bush­fire gig, but then it doesn’t make much sense to fly someone round the world when the idea is to raise money..

  19. Lawrence - February 28, 2009 12:45 PM

    Hey Guy
    Your may have a good point there Guy it may not make much sense, BUT I do live in hope of the day when Mr Davies needs to top up his retire­ment fund and reforms Icehouse with your fan­tastic talent in the Icehouse engine room one more time.
    Love them or hate them the 80’s were the decade when the bass crept out of the closet.
    I for one would love to hear that haunting bass of The Mountain and those smooth phat bass lines of Stay Close Tonight and Dusty Pages but to name a few one more time LIVE.
    And Guy ques­tion any plans of coming down to Adelaide again for the next Guitar Festival?
    Regards
    Lawrence

  20. Ed Lopez - March 23, 2009 7:36 PM

    Hey Guy,

    Good to see Planet Rock got their “Listen Again” func­tion working again — it was busted for some time after the web­site changed. Given the time dif­fer­ence between the US and the UK it’s not always easy for us to catch your show live.

    I hope you’re well — I don’t think we’ve seen you post any­thing on your blog for a while.

    Ed

  21. Phoenix - March 28, 2009 5:29 AM

    Just a note here, but I got a lovely email from Planet Rock saying Guy’s show is moving to Fridays from 810 UK time. It didn’t say when the change was taking place (wasn’t tonight), but just an FYI for anyone who isn’t on PR’s mailing list.

    Cheers,
    Nix.

  22. Karen - April 6, 2009 10:30 AM

    Is any­body able to let me know, if Mr Pratt’s show was on at new time last Friday night ?

    Thank you.

  23. Phoenix - April 6, 2009 8:11 PM

    Yep, it was. It should be on the now-​​working Listen Again fea­ture.

  24. Karen - April 7, 2009 2:34 AM

    Um, alas it is not

  25. Karen - April 8, 2009 11:52 AM

    Oh, it is under Friday, at time 27:00, of course !

  26. mrdamo123 - April 8, 2009 2:34 PM

    Hi Guy

    I have been a big fan of your work since lis­tening to that first Dream Academy album and you inspired me to take up the bass about 15 years ago. When you get a moment, please checkout my skills at http://​www​.youtube​.com/​m​r​d​a​m​o​123

  27. Luke Willoughby - April 10, 2009 2:10 AM

    Hey, Guy this is in no way related to your blog. But, I had a ques­tion have you ever met Roger Waters and was it awk­ward?

  28. CM - April 29, 2009 12:38 PM
