    Guy,

    I just read a great review of your show in the UK Independent. I hope to see it some day. It men­tioned you were a chain-​​smoker. I hate to hear that. Please stop.

  2. Phoenix - December 1, 2006 10:12 PM

    OMG, a new post. 🙂

    And please put the wine and nib­bles down. They’re dis­tracting you. You can send ‘em our way instead, haha. 🙂

    the Phoenix. 🙂

  3. Brian Slater - December 2, 2006 12:48 AM

    If you’re reading this.…get back to work on the book!

  4. Guy Pratt - December 2, 2006 1:50 PM

    I don’t chain smoke in my show, I light 2 over the course of it, to aid dra­matic pause.…Honest..
    xx

    Well good luck with the book, be shour to add as much floyd in it as pos­sible. Hope to get a to buy it as soon as pos­sible.

    One question:When can we expect a Guy Pratt solo album?

  6. Guy Pratt - December 3, 2006 2:24 AM

    I’m a bass player. With the excep­tion of Jaco Pastirius we make dreadful solo albums.

  7. Phoenix - December 3, 2006 5:19 AM

    But you’re great for rat­tling the mir­rors in my ride.

    the Phoenix.

  8. Guy Pratt - December 4, 2006 1:06 AM

    Like it Phoenix..

  9. ag - December 4, 2006 7:22 AM

    Hmmmmmm, Jack Bruce made a few, sorta kinda.….

    Speaking of which, I have a great story about hanging out with Jack and walking off with his SG that Felix Pappalardi gave him.
    ( I was.….buzzed.…just a bit) Maybe someday (state­side) I can tell you about it over a brew.

  10. Phoenix - December 4, 2006 10:52 AM

    But if one is lis­tening to a good thumpin’ bass in one’s ride, one should never use the foot on the gas pedal to tap along… par­tic­u­larly if Guy is doing One of These Days.

    😀

    Phoe.

  11. Chris - December 9, 2006 10:20 AM

    Ok Guy, no solo albums then, anyway I would like bass gui­tarists solo albums, my favorite instru­ment is the bass and I want to try to play bass&guitar(I can play some­thing well on guitar, but not near good) and I would like to take on the bass.

    I watched a few videos from David’s 2006, well VOIOS we fans called them , cos they are not pro­fe­sional shot, rather by some people in the audinece(whom the secu­rity guys didn’t found), you all had a great time on stage it seames, didn’t you?
    And I must say, you were exactley as the 19871989 Pink Floyd tour,well with shorter hair, but the same great playing.

    Keep it up.

    Chris(from Romania)

  12. Rob - December 9, 2006 4:18 PM

    Hello Guy,
    good to hera the books com­ming soon. bet its walmer in france then in the UK

  13. Pedro - December 9, 2006 7:16 PM

    Hi Guy,

    Great new site you have! Congratulations!

    I wonder if you are playing in any Roxy Music´s DVD con­cert, apart from Live 8 ? If so, what´s its name? so I can buy it as a Christmas gift.

    Thank you in advance.

    Pedro

  14. Brian Slater - December 9, 2006 11:20 PM

    Guy,

    Any word on photos taken of us before the Oakland show last April? I want to get some copies to put up in my office. We had a great time having a pint with you and I’d like to always remember that memory with a photo. If you’ve heard from any of the other blog­gers who were there that had cam­eras ready, I’d like to con­nect with them too. I can give an e-​​mail address if anyone knows more.

    Thanks. I hope the book writing is coming along or finished…I look for­ward to picking it up when released.

  15. Sebastian - December 10, 2006 6:46 AM

    Hello Guy:
    I tell you, I‘m from Argentina, and I like very much the music that you has done with Floyd.
    I play the bass too and I try to be like you. Im 17 years old and I will ask you, wath efect do you use on One of these days and in Sorrow.
    Please answer me.
    Sebastian

    One of these days Im going to cut you into little pieces.

  16. Sebastian - December 10, 2006 6:57 AM

    For God, if you can do that Pink Floyd returns to join and that they come to my country, I will be eter­nally grate­fully.
    I have used a trans­lator to write this

    Pink Floyd is the Best

    Sebastian

    One of these days Im going to cut you into little pieces.

  17. Haris Varajic - December 10, 2006 9:41 PM

    @Sebastian: As we can hear at very start od One of these-​​live, Guy use Delay…and octaver for Sorrow. Enjoy. So long 🙂

  18. Guy Pratt - December 11, 2006 6:24 PM

    Sebastian, Haris is right. And stop telling me you’re going to cut me into tiny little pieces.

  19. geoff duffy dublin - December 12, 2006 12:38 AM

    Hi Guy,
    Just thought i’d pop across cyber­space from my new home at dg​.com and say keep up the good work and if in dublin drop me a line and I’ll show you a good time in the great city.

  20. michael - February 3, 2007 6:29 AM

    hi guy. my name is mchael. i am a really big fan of the Floyd. my Question is to you, how do you play “one of these days” on the bass? i’ve been trying to play my favorite floyd tune for some time. i would like to know how it is played? what type of equip­ment you need? i have an amp with a delay fea­ture on it, but the highest it will go to level 8. i’m won­dering if i add on another delay unit, will it be a longer delay or does the unit can­cell my amp delay and go directly to the unit which prob­ably have a longer delay? i used to play bass in school (long time a go), but unfor­tuneately lost touch for a while. but already just get­ting back into it. i’m trying to teach myself, but having issues. i will be get­ting lessons soon. if you can reply back to me by e-​​mail that would be great.

  21. Woolebeesia - October 28, 2008 7:17 PM

    OK, let me repeat that… I like to flaunt my thor­ough tour A joke for you! How you get down from an ele­phant? You don’t, you get down from ducks.
