PMT Leeds



Thanks to everyone who came to the PMT shows in Leeds and Manchester, I had a great time.
Unfortunately I seem to have lost the piece of paper with addresses that 3 people left for me in Leeds, so if you see this can you please post and let me know.

    Superb night at PMT Manchester. The show was well paced and witty with lots of great sto­ries and some top bass playing, but I would have wel­comed a bit of Q & A at the end — although with the idiot birthday guy on the front row I guess you had your fill of audi­ence inter­ac­tion for one night. As someone who isn’t a Pink Floyd fan I would have liked to hear a bit more of your work with Bryan Ferry and Jimmy Nail, but that’s not a com­plaint.

    Guy, you’re the same age as me, play the same instru­ment and we have sim­ilar tastes from our youth. I got a copy of your ‘My bass…’ book on the night and spent all the next day reading it from cover to cover. Amazed at some of the artists you have worked with. The book was a fan­tastic read and I salute and respect you. Alas, as Robert Palmer one said “some guys have all the luck!” 🙂

  2. Mike Duck - June 22, 2009 1:58 AM

    Thanks Guy for a brill night at pmt in Leeds last week…im still aching from laughing and as always, amazed by your playing! 🙂

  3. eddie holt - June 22, 2009 12:04 PM

    really enjoyed your show ‚except for the idiot at the front haha.
    will defi­nately come and see you again if i get the chance. gotta go and learn that chic groove now im all inspired again.

    thanx

    Hey Guy
    Yes slightly off topic but what the hell just picked up seven tickets today for your Adelaide show.
    My Wife and I are really looking for­ward to seeing your show again this time we’ve made a night of with a few friends we can hardly wait.
    Hope to get a chance to say hello again face to face,
    Oh yea my offer of a Barossa Valley Wine tour is still open if you have time “food and drinks are on us” any­time.
    Looking for­ward to the show
    Regards
    Lawrence

    Hi Guy
    Thanks for an amazing show on thursday night and it was a real bonus that my son won an amp for his bass. I left my busi­ness card at PMT and i shall give you the details again

    hi Guy — I took some photos at the Manchester PMT event — BRILLIANT, espe­cially the way you kept your cool with birthday boy!! Passed a cd of the photos to Lee Alexander from Ashdown for you, hope you get them and like ‘em!!

  7. Linda - July 7, 2009 5:51 PM

    hi guy . nice to see you are’nt for­geting dublin and are playing here in sep­tember . last time you did so it was the carls­berg comedy fes­tival this time it is the bum­mers inter­na­tional comedy fes­itval . am i sensing a small link ? 🙂

    for the second time i came across you gig by fluke but this time there was better adver­tising for the comedy fes­tival you are playing , it gave me more then the 24 hours notice i had last time to buy a ticket ! i was in a pub called the red cow inn having some lunch ( i drive my car for a living you see doing deliv­eries for my dad buis­ness so i can end up eating in pubs, petrol sta­tions or god knows where else!) i found an evening herald new­paper and although there is never much to read in it i scanned through it . i came some adds for upcoming gigs . there was an add for the comedy fes­tival . made up of smaller adds with pic­tures of each act and infor­ma­tion on where to see them . there you were adver­tising my bass . as soon as i got home i got a ticket . i am looking for­ward to seeing your show again !
    cheers
    Linda

    Hey Guy,

    Thanks for your Brisbane show — it was awe­some. Pity about the rude guests in the audi­ence but you han­dled it like a pro.

    I am looking for­ward to seeing you next tour.

    I par­tic­u­larly enjoyed your tails about trying to smash your guitar. I hope you remember the advice I gave you on the night — the guitar hero base is a bolt on neck so will give the right effect when you smash it.

    And as for your com­ment that you can’t seem to get the hang of the whole guitar hero thing –my advice is to keep at it — I am sure you’ll pick it up even­tu­ally — remember it is all in the prac­tice!!!!

    Catch you soon,

    Delena

  9. Cae - August 14, 2009 3:43 AM

    Hey Guy, I was wan­dering in the web today and reading about Boris Karloff (William Henry Pratt — 23 Nov. 1887 — Camberwell, London). Was he by any chance related to you?

    Just fin­ished to read your book. Excellent!

    Best,

    Cae

    Ever likely to bring your show (way) down under to NZ Guy?

    Heya Guy! I gather you’re home now? Time to blog!
    Chris loved the video you did for him. You put on a fab­u­lous show for us at Highfields and I (and others) can’t thank you enough for ven­turing into the back of beyond to do it for us. Huge hugs and kisses to you! xo

  13. Josip - September 6, 2009 6:26 PM

    Hello, Guy! Loved your Great disco bass lines video on Youtube. Do you some­times use Precision bass as well? How would you describe the dif­fer­ence between Precision and Jazz? Cheers!

  14. Ed Lopez - September 15, 2009 1:34 PM

    Hey Guy,

    Good to see things are going well. We’re still waiting for you to do at least a small tour out here in the US! Hope to see you blog soon.

    Regards,

    Ed — New Hampshire

  15. Guy Pratt - September 16, 2009 12:49 PM

    As far as I know I’m not related to Boris Karloff, but I was aware of his name..

    Precisions have a wider neck and only on pickup so they only really have one sound, which is lovely but a bit woody and mellow for my tastes..

    I was meant to be playing NZ this year but the fes­tival got can­celled, hope­fully next year..
