    Nice to see you again on the web Guy! We missed you!
    Very good site, and this blog is really cool. Hope you’ll daily update with your style, and we can meet here just like we do in DG’s blog.

    Shine on

  2. R Britan - October 12, 2006 4:31 PM

    Hy Guy, the new site is fan­tastic, very good design and a lot of stuff to check, con­grat­u­la­tions.

  3. Rudders - Toronto - October 13, 2006 7:54 PM

    Guy

    The new site is a major improve­ment on the pre­vious one… it looks and feels excel­lent…

    Now you have so many Blogs to post on and so little time 🙂

  4. José Raeiro - October 13, 2006 8:28 PM

    Hello Guy, just to tell you that your new web­site just frskn rocks. Rock on „/​

  5. Renee B. - October 13, 2006 11:08 PM

    Hey Guy the site looks great!!
    Hope all is well.

  6. ash - October 13, 2006 11:30 PM

    Hello Guy,

    This is very nice, been lovely looking arround, much nicer than the old one.

    I have been trying to read the biog­raphy book, and ended up having a good chuckle because I can’t turn the pages. I’m using one of those little window things instead of a mouse and keep run­ning out of little window. (Almost as sur­real an image as the light­bulb man if you put an A infront of little)

    Perhaps I need a more Delicate touch 🙂 going nuts now to see whats on the other pages.

    Best Wishes,

    ash X

    Ah-​​ha ! ! there is a knack to turning the pages !

    Very Nice!

    Now THIS web­site lives up to your rock­star status Guy. Defeninitely better than the one before! Hopefully this blog will fend off the evil spam demon present on your pre­vious guest­book.

    I really like the layout of the web­site, the book for your bio is very orig­inal and the ele­gant vibe is very nice. Now, the music sec­tion still being down? Cmon! Get to it! We wanna a see it fill up with solo albums real soon!

    What else can I say except it was good seeing you in the summer, thanks again for the pick at the Toronto show. MB&OA DVD. Please, do it for us mexicans.…and the rest of the con­ti­nent, and the world.

    Oh I must add I was a bit sur­prised not to see DG’s web­site in the links sec­tion, maybe you guys forgot about it? Maybe he hasnt paid you for the your? hehe

    Anyway„ hope to see you around here.

    Thanks for your con­tri­bu­tion to fandom,too… it makes lis­tening to music per­son­ally sat­is­fying on a whole other level.…

  13. Joe Muldoon - October 17, 2006 3:11 PM

    Hi Guy

    How would you like to come up to Scotland on the 27th October and play bass as a guest spot with my very own Pink Floyd tribute show?? Plus, apart from being the high­light of the night, you would get to meet Marco: The Italian Bass legend!! (actu­ally he is pretty good).

    Ok, so you will prob­ably say no, but hey, its nice to be asked.

  14. Alan - October 18, 2006 1:57 PM

    hi guy great stuff there. but when are you going to bring your show to ire­land? be great to see it!

    salute

    ps dark days in par­adise is one of the finest gary moore releases of recent times!

  15. David Kenyon - October 19, 2006 1:40 PM

    Hi Guy — looking for­ward to seeing your show in Bolton at the end of the month — anyone in the North West get down there — its a bril­liant show — be third time ive seen it!!
    Best wishes, Dave

  16. Simon Johnstone - October 27, 2006 6:26 PM

    Absolutly love the new site. Good to see people from the DG site like Rudders. Good luck.

    P.S When is the next Wales ‘tour’!!!!

  17. Diego Cardenas ( Chile ) - October 30, 2006 4:18 AM

    Hi Guy! it’s great that you are still with your solo carreer..and doing your own show…you are one of the greatest bass players in the globe as Dave Gilmour said.
    just hope to see you playing..solo or in gilmour’s show..some day in southamerica.

    Best Regards from Chile and con­grat­u­la­tions for your web­site.
    Diego

  18. emmanuel - October 30, 2006 12:52 PM

    Hello Guy,

    Finally you have your own blog, how sat­is­fying it must be, although I enjoy the blog from your latest band leader David Gilmour, I am now happy to meet your blog on your site.

    First i must enjoyed fol­lowing the band from London RAH May 30th and 31st, then Venice August 4th and 5th (damn struc­ture) how­ever Venice has a mag­ical kick to it and in charming com­pany time flies by faster than I would have liked. Then the 12th August what a great evening, 11th I was stranded in the UK fol­lowing some non sense and kids playing silly buger!! No flight would be taking off, and I strug­gled to reach Venice for the show, and great it was too!!!

    Finally one my last was in Gdansk where it was an ever lasting great per­for­mance… Could say so much, having some per­sonal links with Poland, I know they have a great pas­sion about the Pink Floyd and then of course Daid Gilmour’s music and har­monies, and having One of Their best com­poser, Zbigniew Preisner playing along­side, it was a “GOT TO BE DONE” event.
    And above all, you would have missed the rejoyce of the crowd by the gate who only enjoy having laugh­ters n reen­acting the day their par­ents would have taken the ship­yard with their Hero lesch Walesa… and that was great fun wish i had it on camera.

    On all ground well done I like your bass and your strangely shaped instru­ments, and cannot wait to see you on November 13th.

    You might remember or not, but by chance I did book at the Hotel Gritti Palace and I had the plea­sure to con­grat­u­late you and the other band’s musi­cians on August 4th and per­son­ally when on the out­side ter­race while enjoying a Belini in the smooth evening salty air.

    Great fun and WOW you played for Michael Jackson, I feel for the man and all the pres­sure people are putting over him, he is still a great per­former.
    I mix a few jackson(s), with Jackson Brown, Joe Jackson, and then there must be a few more but I get around them even­tu­ally.

    I will look for­ward to the chat on David’s Chat room and finally to see you in London at the King’s Head Theatre.

    Best of Luck and regards,

    Emmanuel

  19. Matty - October 30, 2006 8:52 PM

    Hello Guy,

    I would have said the same com­ment David wrote for your opening page.
    I have seen lis­tened and heard many Bass musi­cians and you are far ahead of the lot.
    Sure you play will be as fun as you play and act on stage.

    Best of Luck, and great of me to choose the 13th as I will have to be on Jury’s duty 3 days later!!!

    Best regards

    Guy

    Saw you at the Moses Gate and boy did I laugh! Thank you, very enter­taining! Shame it was such a small turnout please don’t let it put you off coming up here again, I’m sure that if you did some­where more cen­tral Manchester you’d get a bigger crowd. Anyway from one of the few can I pub­licly say if you read this and are con­sid­ering going to see Guy, you’re in for a good evening!

    Regards

    A mas­sive thankyou for coming to the Moses Gate, we all had a great night and morning!!
    Hope you had a safe journey home and good luck with the rest of the tour!!

  25. Thomas O'Connell - November 5, 2006 12:27 AM

    Guy, I just wanted to thank you for joining us at Davids Blog. I hope things are going well. I just hope one day you can join us in Davids chat room. We are like a family with a great Editor(who you must know). Plus I hope you can come to the US with your show. Thomas

  26. Wes Wingate - November 5, 2006 12:52 AM

    Guy,

    I’m looking for a ver­sion of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” that I believe you played on where you can really here the string bass, much more than the synth. I went out and bought as many ver­sions of the song as I could find hoping I could find it. It sounds like slap towards the end of the chorus. I know I’ve heard this ver­sion. Am I crazy or does this exist some­where. Maybe a radio edit or some­thing? Could you email me if this is true?

    Wes

  27. Guy Pratt - November 5, 2006 10:10 PM

    Wes
    The album ver­sion has the best bass mix on it, it’s in the middle and end sec­tions you can hear it.

  28. Haris varajic - November 6, 2006 6:31 AM

    I very much like the new site redesign Guy. I think it’s great that you do comedy, in addi­tion to your music, and who knows what else. Maybe the goats know! I can tell you love what you do, because it shows.

    If you come to the Bay Area and have a moment, I promise I’ll buy you a beer (or, drink of your choice).

    Kindest Regards–

    Hi Guy!

    Thanks for being a tremen­dous inspi­ra­tion and for all your con­tri­bu­tion to both Floyd and Roxy over the years. I’ve seen you four times this year with Gilmour and it was a thrill every­time seeing how much you enjoyed your­self up on that stage! It wouldn’t have sounded the same without you!

    Cheers!

    Hello Guy,
    Great to see you have your new web­site up an run­ning, Its very nice. Seen you in New York with David it was great. In my opinion you are just as good as Roger on the bass, i shut my eyes and it sounds the same as it did 20 years ago, you were truly a blessing for David to find and you have a sense of humor witch makes it alot better. Hope every thing goes well on you tour and the web­site is great.

    Blessed Be
    Clarice

    Love the new site.

    The gang from Luka’s in Oakland sends you a vir­tual pint.

    Let me know if we can do any­thing to help you plan a show out here around San Francisco. We’ll all be there if you come.

    Take Care.

  36. Gabrielle Childers - November 7, 2006 1:49 AM

    Hey there Guy!

    Great looking site and so many familiar names, too! I was having the same problem as ash so decided to give it a rest and come say hello first. Hopefully I can finesse those biog­raphy pages when I go back.

    The last time I checked and posted on your old site it was filled up with, dare I say it, SPAM. Lots of viagra offers too … hmmmmm, any­thing you’d like to share? Just kid­ding.

    Keep having fun and drop in and chat one of these days. But I warn you, we’re an unsa­vory lot at times … very naughty, mostly Erin of course — I’d never par­tic­i­pate in any­thing like that, would I Irregulars???

    Peace and Love!

    Nice web­site!

    If you could just pencil in Glasgow for the world tour it would be very much appre­ci­ated.
    FWIW I much prefer you to that other bass player and you’re younger and better looking 🙂

    Hello Guy, this is a fan­tastic web­site. Best Wishes on your endeav­ours, and thanks for all your inputs. Good ques­tion asked pre­vi­ously, is the Fed involved here too? Hope to see you in the spring,perhaps in Toronto. Okay?

  41. AG (alternate gilmour) - November 7, 2006 10:27 PM

    What a great site. i’ve never seen nothing like this before! It’s amazing!! Ricardo Padua excel­lent job!!

  52. Mark Bain - November 13, 2006 1:12 PM

    Great to see your own blog up and run­ning Guy. Any hope of doing one of your shows in Scotland? (Aberdeen is nice!)

  53. Bran from Croatia - November 13, 2006 4:07 PM

    Wow!
    Didnt see this place b4!
    Great looking site you have Guy…

    I hope you’ll post in this blog…unlike David that never dropped in to say hi…David, David…lol

    Cheers!

    very lovely web­site, long time fan been of bass instru­ment guitar … so shocked no men­tion in discog­raphy bit of bass guitar playing you are doing on ” Because We Love You ” the long playing album record by Stephen The Duffy … some really lovely lines of the bass going on there … hurray … and as you say ROCK ON!

    PS 12″ of Icing on the Cake was very groovy too …

  55. Jessica - November 14, 2006 4:50 AM

    I agree with everyone, this site is much more “grown up” dare I say.

    Actually looks like someone is trying..no offence 🙂

    I still can’t find your book.…

  56. Phoenix - November 14, 2006 7:23 AM

    Guy, stum­bled across your site and the blog quite by acci­dent (blame David’s blog ;).

    I have a feeling my next project is going back through his blog and seeing the inter­esting things you have to say there. Even the briefest glimpse tells me that I should have paid more atten­tion in the past. 😉

    Anyway, been a fan for years, and you can blame the Delicate Sound of Thunder tour on that. Well, the video, anyway, since I haven’t man­aged to actu­ally /​see/​ you in con­cert in person yet. In any of the videos and DVDs you’re in, I always have to watch ya, because you’re having too much fun.

    I must say that you’re one of the two main rea­sons I’m inter­ested in the bass as an instru­ment (the other is Geddy Lee). Now if only I had a real bass to learn on (sigh). And it’s taking for­ever to get my guitar cal­luses back after a long enforced vaca­tion from stringed instru­ments. At least my strat misses me, yay!

    Looking for­ward to more posts and such,

    the Phoenix.

  57. Guy Pratt - November 14, 2006 10:34 AM

    Hi all
    Thanks for your kind words. Had a good show in London last night, the audi­ence took a bit of warming up but I got them in the end..
    Thanks to everyone who came. I’ll try and answer ques­tions more from now on..
    BTW I think everyone should be rec­om­mending Ricardo as a web­site designer as he’s the best don’t you think?

  58. Phoenix - November 14, 2006 8:15 PM

    I’d hire him myself if I could afford him. 🙂

    Sorry I missed the show, but until they invent a decent tele­port, wrong side of the pond, I’m sorry to say.

    the Phoenix.

  59. ag - November 15, 2006 12:58 AM

    will you ever spend more time in the U.S. ??

    what do you think of basses from japan?

  60. emmanuel - November 15, 2006 10:13 AM

    Hello Guy and well done for your show.

    Slow start and never too easy to warm up an audi­ence, but I did try to ini­tiate some applause and get them all to follow.
    I much enjoyed all the aneg­dotes and sto­ries.

    Being a pilot myself I always try to run out of the toi­lets when the plane is on take off mode.… It is GREAT fun Indeed!!!

    About the AOL videos, if there were nobody watching you per­form then they copy and pasted the crowd, and for sure there was a Toyota near, did you all test driven it?

    Will enjoy seeing your show again next year if you con­tinue, and please let me know when a book is coming out.

    All the best for the next show dates.

    Emmanuel

    I hope to tour my show in the states next year, and I used to play an Aria Pro 2 years ago..

  62. Phoenix - November 16, 2006 1:02 AM

    Those’re pretty shiny, but I’m still overly fond of the Fender basses, and a friend’s trying to get me to buy his stand-​​up. I don’t have that sorta cash floating about due to var­ious game con­soles coming out JUST in time for the hol­i­days. *cough* Ahem. Hand-​​eye coör­di­na­tion prac­tice, don’tchaknow. 😉

    Hopefully your US/​NA tour will manage a locale near me!

    And if not, road trips can be fun. 🙂

  63. Chris - November 17, 2006 5:03 PM

    Nice site Guy, hope you drop in from time to time anyway LOVE the web site and love your bass playing, I’m a Pink Floyd fan and… I actualy like your playing on the 19871989 and Knebworth 1990 and the 1994 DB tour, very well done!

    Also, why didn’t you demand that your bass solo in Money during the 1994 tour, like the 19871989, to still be allowed to play it?

    Cheers
    Christian.

  64. Becky in Atlanta - November 18, 2006 7:15 PM

    Howdy, Guy! It took me a little while to motor over here but I have to say it’s pretty darned cool that you have your own site and blog. (Can we talk about bootlegs and tribute bands here? Just kid­ding.…)

    And yes, thank good­ness Rummy’s gone. How nice of you to men­tion that! I hope we can make lots of much-​​needed changes in our gov­ern­ment these next two years. The US took a bad turn with W and needs to fix a bunch of stuff. I hope that igno­min­ious period in our his­tory is soon gone for­ever.

    If you come to the states, Guy, be sure and do a few shows in the south. (Atlanta would be nice, of course.) We’re not all red­necks and idiots.

    Becky

    PS–I like your site very much…very appealing visu­ally… although the print is rather small. But I sup­pose that has to do with my screen res­o­lu­tion, eh? And my failing eye­sight?

  65. Guy Pratt - November 19, 2006 1:12 PM

    Morning all
    I’m down in France fran­ti­cally trying to get my book fin­ished. Very funny revis­iting the mis­ad­ven­tures of my youth.
    By the way, everyone who says “Why don’t you do a show in so and so“
    I intend to take my show every­where I can, so hang on..

    The reason I didn’t do Bass solo’s afdter 89 is because I realised what band I was in!

    Cheers!

    Guy said: [By the way, everyone who says “Why don’t you do a show in so and so” I intend to take my show every­where I can, so hang on..]

    Hanging on with quiet des­per­a­tion. 😀

    By the way, Guy, if you want to build up some buzz in advance, I’d be more than happy to air brief clips of some of your stuff on my internet radio show. We not only air the usual sort of fare you’d see on Dr. Demento’s show (half of my station’s DJs have been /​on/​ said show with their own funny stuff), but we also do stand-​​up come­dians and spoken word… I’m told your mate­rial trans­lates well into an audio-​​only expe­ri­ence.

    Just an idle offer here, no huge pres­sure or guilt-​​tripping. 🙂 It’d just be freakin’ cool, that’s all. 🙂

    Good luck with the book.

    the Phoenix.

    PS. Bön jour, Michele, com­ment ca va?

    (This is me having flash­backs to high school, and that was 20 years ago.) 😉

  68. Renee B. - November 20, 2006 1:56 AM

    Hoping and hoping you will come to the US. I hope you have a great hol­iday season, glad to see you posting.
    By the way thanks for answering one of my ques­tions on the DG Blog!

  69. Chris - November 20, 2006 3:03 PM

    Thanks for the answer sir.

    That’s how­ever such a pity, if I remeber right your only bass solo(well except the entry from One Of These Days) was in Oakland in 1994, right?

    I realy loved you solos, espe­cialy the Venice 1989 one, witch I have on DVD, just won­derful played, and one other thing, how did you do your hair then? It looks great!

    Good luck with your book and best wishes.

    Cheers
    Chris

  70. Marcus - November 22, 2006 10:29 PM

    Thanks for having a pro­fes­sional blog in addi­tion to David’s. It’s nice to have an equally cool, but dif­ferent per­spec­tive! Have you thought of offering your comedy via pod­cast or dig­ital down­load? I know I would pur­chase one…

  71. Gabrielle Childers - November 23, 2006 6:07 AM

    Hey Guy,

    Paint My House”??? Put FEd on it since he/​she is a much-​​acclaimed house-​​remodel, spackle and paint expert!

    Great to hear that you’re plan­ning to hit the road in the States with your show next year. I actu­ally don’t think I’ve ever been to a comedy club before, even when I lived in the LA area where they are plen­tiful! That set­tles it … your’s will be my first. And then there’s your up-​​coming book, too. You are a busy boy, aren’t you?

    Have a won­derful time in France while you finish up your book!

    Peace!

    Looking for­ward to seeing you in Thurso, Caithness Guy. 2007 is year of cul­ture for Inverness and I cant think of a more cul­tured bass player than you. Especially with your Scottish roots.

  73. Julian - November 24, 2006 10:45 AM

    The new site is great. Look for­ward to vis­iting it in the future. Looking for­ward to seeing you at the Kings Head Theatre this Sunday.

  74. Guy Pratt - November 24, 2006 12:51 PM

    Scottish Roots?

  75. ag - November 27, 2006 3:41 AM

    I’d like to know more about your hard­ware on the Floyd shows. Also, have you mod­i­fied any of your gui­tars?

  76. Julian - November 27, 2006 10:48 AM

    My wife Ann and I enjoyed your show last night. We had a great meal in a Thai rester­aunt a couple of doors up then came in to see you.
    Have to say you got the bal­ance of giving a bit of inside knowl­edge to the people you have worked with in a very funny and amusing way without being sala­tious, well per­haps just a little bit but we enjoyed it. We were also impressed by your musical abil­i­ties, but for a musi­cian of your cal­ibre I sup­pose this shouldn’t be a sur­prise.
    Great stuff.

  78. Brian Slater - November 30, 2006 6:56 AM

    Guy,

    I’m glad you have a per­sonal space where we can say a little hello from time to time. I had the awe­some oppor­tu­nity to meet you for a pint at Lucca’s before the second Gilmour show in Oakland, Ca. BigAl and I made sure to send you off with a gra­cious thank you before you took the stage and once again impressed our humble ears. I have always enjoyed watching you play as you move around on stage playing such dri­ving bass lines. I thought you should know. By the way, have you seen any footage or photos of that night at Lucca’s? I didn’t have a camera and would love to see you and our group one more time.

    Cheers.

  79. Brian Slater - November 30, 2006 7:00 AM

  80. Bran - November 30, 2006 2:34 PM

    Hi there!

    I whas just wondering…did you or David ever visit Croatia?
    I’m not gonna start another you should do a show here and so on…it’s just I know you two some­times go on vaca­tion together in Greece and stuff.
    I mean, Croatia has a very beau­ty­full coast.
    I would be very pleased if the two of you decided to visit my country some­time.
    The Floyd never ever had a gig in these parts.
    For ’94 tour I had to travel to Munich to see you and this year I went to Milan to see you two.…and of course…had a time of my life.
    My point is, you have loads of fans here too…and we are not so far away…

    And yea…as the yanks say…You Rawk dOOd! 🙂

    Bran

  81. Guy Pratt - November 30, 2006 6:02 PM

    Bran
    I know people who sail around Croatia, which I fancy, I might be going there with Bryan Ferry next year.

  82. Bran - December 1, 2006 1:22 PM

    Hey Guy!

    You mean, you’re going to have a gig with Brian?
    Or you’re going to sail with him on the Adriatic sea? 🙂

    One other thing…I like your slap bass parts on some of the Floyd songs…particulary on Another brick pt.II. live.
    Screw those who dont.

    Cheers!

  83. Karen - December 6, 2006 1:06 PM

    Hi Guy,

    Been checking your site reg­u­larly for a while and nothing really seemed to work. And now I don\‘t even know how I got here. Actually I can\‘t even began to tell you and I prob­ably won’t remember and nothing will work again tomorrow and I work in IT, so I should know this stuff.

    But it\‘s 11pm here in Sydney, I have had 4 hours sleep and I\‘m raving a bit.

    Anyway nice to finally say hi, nice site.

    And you don’t hear from me again, it’s because every­things gone pear shaped again.

    Karen.

    Hi Guy,

    Have acci­dently bumped into your blog via The Transit Kings. Have always admired the fact that you do both com­mer­cial and (very) uncom­mer­cial music. I have to admit to being sur­prised at some of the people you have worked with. I became aware of your bass playing skills through The Orb and did see you per­form with the Floyd.

    Well good luck to you with your future endeav­ours and keep doing the uncom­mer­cial stuff!!

    Best Wishes

    Paul from Glasgow, Scotland

  85. Andy - January 1, 2007 8:41 PM

    Caro Guy!

    Sou fã dos Pink Floyd, aprendi a gostar através de meu pai (já fale­cido), e hoje tenho quase todos os acervos de vocês. Gostaria muito que vocês viessem para o BRASIL, pois aqui vocês são REIS, MITO. Aquele show que de 1995 (PULSE) para mim foi e é o melhor de todos os tempos. Gostaria muito que aquele PULSE venha para o RIO DE JANEIRO, com certeza abso­luta será de casa cheia!!! Um forte abraço e SUCESSO a todos.
