Merry Xmas



To everyone…

It hasn’t been the best of years, and I hope none of you are losing your homes! Here’s to a better 2009..
xxGuy

P.S
I’d just like to share the response I sent to the NPF web­site who put a link to my Australian TV inter­view..

Before I get in a whole heap of trouble, could I just point out that I didn’t say David played most of the Bass, I merely meant he played some, such as the fret­less work on The Wall, the com­ment was meant to be light hearted and friv­o­lous, and should be taken as such. I did give Roger his full due as lyri­cist and con­cep­tu­alist so was hardly trying to belittle him, which your com­ment could lead some to pre­sume. The way you’ve posted it makes it sound more serious than it is.

    A Merriest of Xmases to you and yours, Guy, and to everyone here! May this time be most won­derful, fun, and espe­cially safe and healthy for all!

    - Caroline

    Merry Christmas! 😉

  3. Thomas Robinson - December 24, 2008 7:23 PM

    Happy Christmas everyone. I hope Father Christmas brings everyone some nice presents, and a big stick to beat any bankers with just in case you see any (although if there are any bankers reading this then you are obvi­ously one of the few nice bankers who have good taste and thus shouldn’t be beaten).

    With regards to your email to NPF, some people else­where have taken it the wrong way but i’ve seen the inter­view and it seemed per­fectly clear to me that the com­ment wasn’t entirely serious. Unfortunately some people are devoid of common sense when it comes to thinks like these, or they just choose to ignore it so they can have a good old moan about the usu­ally Pink Floyd stuff. Frank;y i don’t think they’re worth lis­tening to.

    I think i’ve wit­tered on long enough, so merry christmas everyone.

    Merry Christmas Guy.

    You might want to get over to the Fleeting Glimpse forum then (where this all orig­i­nated) and clarify the sit­u­a­tion there, as this is being hotly debated.

    Guy

    I watched the inter­view live here and your com­ment was taken in con­text and was funny — and nothing we already did not know from other sources.

    But I do have to take you to account over your choice of date for your Sydney show — the only night of the year that I was being oper­ated on for a bad shoulder! How dare you! I would have loved to see the show, and to give you a hug to pass onto Gala for the loss of her father and our friend.

    Happy New Year!

  9. Caroline - January 1, 2009 10:24 PM

    A Happy 2009 to everyone here! May it hope­fully treat all of us well…

    Happy New Year from Dublin, everyone! OMG, you lot have awe­some hol­iday dec­o­ra­tions over here! LED lights every­where! I love it!

    Cheers,

  11. Paul Sexton - January 2, 2009 1:02 PM

    Happy Birthday Guy!! Hope it and the year are a good one and that your wish, what­ever it may be, comes true! 😉

  14. Phoenix - January 3, 2009 9:17 AM

    Happy happy birthday to my favorite bass player! I’ll make sure there’s a toast in your honor tomorrow when I meet up with a couple of blog­gers here in Dublin. 🙂

    Nix.

  15. Thomas Robinson - January 3, 2009 3:40 PM

    Happy Birthday Guy, hope you have a great day. And remember, you’re not get­ting older, you’re just get­ting more expe­ri­enced.

  16. Genevieve - January 3, 2009 6:07 PM

    Happy Birthday !

  17. Phoenix - January 3, 2009 10:52 PM

    I had a Guinness the last time I was here, Paul, and it wasn’t for me… and Linda can stop chuck­ling to her­self right now! 🙂 I’ll stick to the Jamesons whiskey instead.

    And happy birthday again, Guy!

  18. Paul Sexton - January 3, 2009 11:21 PM

    Jamesons is it!!!!.…too wild for me. Hope you have a great time!.

    Maybe a day too late, but Tchin-​​Tchin, Mr Pratt.

    And my best wishes for 2009!

  20. Gabrielle, Washington State - January 6, 2009 2:18 AM

    Hello m’dear!
    I’d like to send you greet­ings and wish you a happy new year, as well as a slightly-​​belated Happy Birthday! I’m always late with these things …

    Love the inter­view snippets–it’s lovely to hear you laughing and telling tales of tour antics. I must read your book again…I could use a good guffaw right about now!

    Take care ~ I wish you and yours peace, love and hap­pi­ness in the coming year(s).
    Gabrielle

  21. Kevin from Michigan - January 6, 2009 3:27 AM

    Random thought: People who I would like to sit at a bar with two glasses and a bottle of Glenlivet 12. #1. Guy Pratt.

    Cheers! I hope your ’09 is infi­nately better than ’08.
