    Ferry album sounds great mate. Chris Spedding one of the boys…
    Hope you’re doing OK. I’ll try to catch you on the tour some­where. Just look for the hair com­rade!

    Saw you last night on ‘Live from Abbey Road’ with Mr G 🙂
    Excellent per­for­mance from a great band.

    That’s why we get the Big Bucks!’ 😀

    Looks like you all enjoy your­self!

    small f for ferry? tut tut 😉

  3. Andy - March 4, 2007 10:23 PM

    Hi Guy, just saw the docu on Ch4. I note you were using an Ashdown combo. I’m wrestling with an Ashdown ABM500 at mo; what set­tings did you use during the show?? Would be very grateful if you could let me know then I could try them and see if sounds better than the ones I’ve used thus far. Soz for the anorak type ques­tion! 🙂 Good luck with the tour.

  4. Renee - March 4, 2007 11:31 PM

    Good luck on tour and stay safe. HOpe the book is going good.

    Isn’t it bonny Scotland ?

    And where are we going ?

  6. Guy Pratt - March 5, 2007 5:01 PM

    My Ashdown set­tings aere just a bit over half for every­thing, no big secret..

    Well I’m going off on my own tour, details soon..

    xx
    Guy

  7. lorraine - March 6, 2007 12:14 AM

    I’m looking for­ward to your very own tour.

  8. Phoenix - March 6, 2007 10:43 AM

    Just so long as it’s not a three hour tour, a three hour tour…

    (Yes, very sleep deprived at the moment…)

  9. Haris Varajic - March 7, 2007 1:56 AM

    Hi Guy!
    All the best about toor and book!
    I just read at one web portal that Brian Ferry will visit Sarajevo and make con­cert here. Can you con­firm that?
    It would be awsome, to meet you finally, and to hear gor­geous sound of “Betsy” live :))

  10. STEFANO - March 8, 2007 11:49 PM

    Hy Guy,

    I met you after the second show in Milan, out­side the hotel. We dis­cussed just a minute about my new Stingray.….the same colour that one of yours (Natural).
    Did you remember me?
    Can you help me? I want to find a name for my bass.…do you have any sug­gest?

    Have a great time with Brian on tour!
    Hope to see you in Italy another time (alone or with “Uncle David”)

    Cheers
    Stefano.

  13. Sebastian - March 13, 2007 4:09 AM

    Hello Guy.
    How its going.
    Im from Argentina, and im very happy because this sat­urday i will see Roger Waters on stage. Wath do you think about him? Is he a good person? I think that Gilmour, Mason, Wrigth and Roger Waters too are more inter­ested in the money that in the music. I like pink floyd music to much.
    Is there any pos­si­bility that David Gilmour comes to Argentina?
    Ok i think I have done to much ques­tions for this time.
    You now, I like very much the solo that yo do on One slip. Is that com­pli­cated? I play bass to.

    Sorry for the ortho­graphic mis­takes.
    If you want to mail me, my email is Sebla1989​@​homail.​com
    hehe good wishes… Seba

    The echo of a dis­tant time
    Comes wil­lowing across the sand
    And every­thing is green and sub­ma­rine

    Thats a good song hehehe
    good bye

    Adiós jejeje suerte Guy tu musica es exe­lente

  14. Nate - March 16, 2007 1:59 AM

    Hi Guy,

    Not sure if you have kept watching ‘the show’
    It’s coming to an end like all good things must 🙁

    This one from a few days ago is made up of clips sent in from the com­mu­nity around it:
    http://​www​.zefrank​.com/​t​h​e​s​h​o​w​/​a​r​c​h​i​v​e​s​/​2007​/​03​/​031307​.​h​tml

    Caution it’s longer than ‘Echoes’ 😉

  15. Chris - March 16, 2007 4:58 PM

    I’m shoure you don’t need another wishing-​​of-​​good luck , cos you all­ready are a very lucky person, have a nice time on the tour.

    May I ask some­thing, you played guitar on Then I Clouse My Eyes in 2006 on David’s tour, I have never saw you on elec­tric guitar before, sorry, the ques­tion is:are you a very good guitar player?
    I also play the guitar, was won­dering what’s your favorite type of guitar? (brand, model…)

  16. Simon J - March 16, 2007 6:58 PM

    Just wanted to say hey. However there is a catch.…

    For this weekend only, Wales are playing England, so Good luck.….
    .….

    Cause you’ll need it!!

    All the best to you Guy. Fi dym Yn hoffi Lloegr. Work that one out Gilmour fans!!!!

  17. Phoenix - March 17, 2007 6:26 AM

    Simon J said: Fi dym Yn hoffi Lloegr.

    You hawked up a loogie?

    Work that one out, my Welsh friend. 😀

  18. Gabrielle Childers - March 17, 2007 5:02 PM

    Hello Guy!

    It’s been a while since I checked in with you. Looks as though you’re keeping pretty busy this month, eh? Hope you’re enjoying the tour and we’re still looking for­ward to that book of yours as well as the comedy tour to follow.

    Just a sug­ges­tion, try to arrange your comedy tour schedule to be in the Seattle area some­where just before or after August 18, if you know what I mean (wink, wink)! I’ll have a cabin ready for you along with a few crazy blog­ger­folk from that ‘other’ web­site ready to hoist a pint in your honor!! Actually, most of them are Irregulars on your web­site as well aren’t they?

    Take care my friend! Peace!

  19. Thomas O'Connell - March 20, 2007 11:47 AM

    Hey Guy, Please come and relax at Gabreille’s resort on the 18th of August. Its our first Barnfest 2007. The people who will be there are from Davids web Site. You would love it She has cabins,Pool, Hot Tub and there will be a huge Barbeque. Plus it is located on a beau­tiful river with 40 plus acres of land to hike. I know you are on a buzy schedule. But if you can bring the family and chill out for a few days and do some great fishing. Take Care, Thomas

  20. Guy Pratt - March 20, 2007 6:01 PM

    I’d love to make the barn­fest but it may be a tad ambi­tious..
    xx
    Guy

  21. Phoenix - March 21, 2007 6:36 AM

    Thank you very kindly for con­sid­ering the invi­ta­tion, Guy. Please let us know if there’s any­thing we could do to help make it less ambi­tious, if you’re amenable.

    Nix.

  22. Angelo Ortiz - March 22, 2007 12:09 AM

    Still looking out for when you’re in town, dude. All the best from mostly sunny NYC.…

  23. Rudders - Toronto - March 26, 2007 7:57 PM

    Guy…

    Do you have an esti­mated date for when the book will be out?

    Looking for­ward to seeing the show in Toronto some­time soon. I have a LOT of people inter­ested 🙂

  24. Rudders - Toronto - March 26, 2007 8:18 PM

    Guy…

    Some helpful hints when in Scotland.

    1. Don’t refer to the locals as “Sweaties” as they tend to get upset. For those of you not accus­tomed to rhyming slang this means Sweaty Sock = Jock = Scottish Person

    2. They are kilts NOT skirts…

    Good luck 🙂

  25. Tomasz - March 28, 2007 8:22 PM

    Just came back home from Amsterdam,
    What a gig it was, I enjoyed every mintute there,
    I would like to thank you and to ask you to thank all Mr. Ferry band,
    It is dif­fi­cult to point highs and lows of the night because it was all time high,

    Thanks a lot,

    Tomasz

  26. animal - March 30, 2007 4:11 PM

    hi ,
    last night seen the bryan ferry show in antwerp ( i was the shiny bald cue­ball on the front row ) well best show of the decade , a dancing audi­ence and a lot of fun on stage , andy new­mark and the pratt guy makes faces to onean­other , lovely to see !
    thx for the fan­tastic night !!!

  27. Karen - April 5, 2007 1:37 AM

    Noticed you have updated tour dates with ’ your ’ tour.

    Nice.

  28. Renee - April 5, 2007 5:54 PM

    hhhmmmm.….no US dates?? Well I will keep hoping

  29. george hartselle - April 5, 2007 6:05 PM

    Guy
    I’ve read the reviews of your show and doesn’t it feel a bit strange to be rou­tinely referred to as self dep­re­cating. It sounds as though you’re abusing your­self. But what would I know, I’m just a bass­player?

  30. Rudders - Toronto - April 5, 2007 8:00 PM

    Guy…Help!

    I’ve nearly fin­ished the sev­enth series of the West Wing on DVD and very soon there’ll be a big gap I’ll need to fill

    Sooo… maybe a show in Tornto will ease the pain? 🙂

    (Although a new series of the Trailer Park Boys starts next week)

  31. Guy Pratt - April 8, 2007 9:42 PM

    There’s self dep­re­cating or arro­gant, and not a lot in between, I know which I’d rather be..

  32. steffen berster - April 9, 2007 5:07 PM

    hi guy, saw you per­forming in düs­sel­dorf. great audi­ence, wasn‘t it? 😉 great show as well. i was standing first row and really had to laugh some times when you and andy inter­acted for example in “simple twist of fate”…great little moments…good luck for the tour! (i got the set list from the stage engi­neer– why was vir­ginia plain on it– but not per­formed as an encore? would be a great addi­tion to the set…simply love the old roxy stuff!) cu steffen from ger­many

  33. Rudders - Toronto - April 13, 2007 1:32 PM

    Sorry Guy…
