    Great News Guy!
    But the ques­tion is… do I really want to come and see you again? 😉
    You were at The Ritzy on Saturday?

  3. Richard - September 17, 2007 9:36 PM

    Hi guy

    Just read the book. Very funny! I am sure Bryan doesn’t allow that kind of behav­iour!

    I saw some cool Icehouse videos on with a very young Guy Pratt on YouTube last night.

  4. Becky in Atlanta - September 18, 2007 1:19 AM

    How mar­velous to meet you at the Ritzy, Guy! And thanks for the kiss! (On the cheek, that is.…) 😉

    I see that Mojo gave your book four stars. Well done!

  5. Geoff Duffy - September 19, 2007 12:48 AM

    Thank you so much for signing my 8 month old son’s t shirt at leceister square sir and that brown jacket you wore at the Ritzy was very nice indeed but not very mod ha ha .

  6. Paul Sexton - September 19, 2007 8:47 PM

    Ooops
    Nice playing on the dvd, Guy

  7. Heather and Phil - September 20, 2007 2:48 PM

    Dear Guy, A fan­tastic DVD par­tic­u­larly amused by your scam­pering around during Richards Comfortably Numb plus the total look of admi­ra­tion on your face for him during Echoes… the years just rolled away and once again he was playing in Pompeii… he really does get better all the time.l

  8. Rudders - Toronto - September 20, 2007 3:19 PM

    Guy

    - Congratulations! The book was an excel­lent read. I thor­oughly enjoyed it.

    - RTN is a truly amazing DVD in both quality and con­tent and some­thing to be proud of…

    - A lot of us over here in North America are hoping to see your show one day…

    Cheers… 🙂

  9. Howard Bayliss - September 20, 2007 3:50 PM

    Hey Guy,

    I am from David’s blog as well posting for the first time. Look at all the fellow blog­gers here…excellent.
    I second Rudder’s request for you to come over to Canada and play Toronto. There are a lot of good British pubs in the area and I will be the first to buy you a pint either before or after the show.

    Cheers, Howard

  10. Becky in Atlanta - September 21, 2007 12:45 PM

    Hi.

  11. Steve - France - September 21, 2007 4:32 PM

    Hi Guy
    Do you know if musics which you made for the “Hackers” movie in 1995 are avail­able in trade?
    Thank you for your answer
    Cheers 🙂

  12. Davor Vasic - September 23, 2007 8:37 PM

    Hi Guy,
    I am going to see Mr.Ferry’s show in Belgrade(Serbia) on October,7th .I was wondering,if you would like to auto­graph my copy of Pulse DVD and Division Bell cd for me?
    Thanx,
    Davor

  13. Guy Pratt - September 24, 2007 1:05 PM

    Sadly my Hackers music never made it onto the album..
    I’m always happy to sign auto­graphs if you find me..

  14. Spider - September 24, 2007 7:30 PM

    Hi all!

    I don’t know why but I had a problem with my first com­ment… So, I try again… It was just to say that the DVD “David Gilmour at the Royal Albert Hall” is just fan­tastic! It was great to see David Bowie singing Comfortably Numb and, of course, to see you playing bass Mr Pratt!

    Hope to see you in con­cert one day…

  15. Ed Lopez - September 24, 2007 11:58 PM

    Hey Guy,

    Congratulations on being part of such a suc­cessful DVD. Reading David Gilmour’s blog and news today (September 24th) it’s impres­sive to see his DVD rising up the charts quickly but not sur­prising. What a blessing to be a part of all this Pink Floyd and David Gilmour his­tory!

    This DVD is bound to be rec­og­nized as a classic and all of you who par­tic­i­pated in it will have quite an iconic place in music his­tory. Marie and I really hope your book is pub­lished in the US soon and that you are able to tour here. We hope that, at least while we are here in Utah, you don’t over­look Salt Lake City on your next tour. We also hope to see you in London in November if you book some tour dates — we’ll be in the area and Marie would love to see your show as she hasn’t been able to yet.

    Ed

    PS — Thanks for taking the time to chat for a bit out­side the Groucho Club after the Odeon pre­mière. You went out of your way during a very busy time. This is why your fans appre­ciate you a great deal.

  16. wynner - September 25, 2007 11:31 AM

    Any chance of you coming over to Dublin ??? i just seen the youtube peice on david bowie singing “Comfortably Numb” total class !!

  17. STEFANO FROM ITALY - September 25, 2007 10:25 PM

    Hy Guy,

    Last night I was seeing for the first time DG’s new DVD.
    After the “too-​​too” “too-​​too” beat’s that intro­ducted “Breath in the air” I didn’t resist and caught my stingray to play with you…
    Why you didn’t use your fan­tastic nat­ural (or black) stingray on this tour? During take a breath for istance…
    I want to say thank’s for the fan­tastic descrip­tion of your ton’s of effects at the end of the book (the book was wery wery hilarous and I was wery sur­prised when I dis­cov­ered that you stayed near Milan (my home) in 1990 to had a recorded ses­sion with Robert Palmer!)

    Good night Guy!
    Stefano.

    Goodnight.

  18. Dave - September 25, 2007 11:24 PM

    guy

    my name is dave and i am a high school teacher in the chicago area. am also an ama­teur song­writer, gui­tarist and bassist. have been a long time fan of yours since first hearing you with pink floyd and bryan ferry while in col­lege in the 80s. we met once, during the divi­sion bell tour back in ’94. still one of the best nights of my life! any news on bringing your new biog­raphy tour to the U.S.?

    anyway, i just picked up the new David Gilmour DVD and saw you playing (i was unsuc­cessful in get­ting tickets when the tour came here) and found your web­site and thought i would drop you a line.

    quick ques­tion for you. back in ’94, you gave me a very used guitar pick with your sig­na­ture on it. i have it in a small frame with a Division Bell adver­tis­ment. when i opened up the new Gilmour DVD, there were pic­tures of sev­eral of david’s plectra so i thought i would write you to see if you had any new plectra???

    i would be hon­ored to have another one of your picks.

    thanks for your time and the great music mem­o­ries. hope to hear from you soon! be well.

    dave

  19. Comfortably Dumb - September 26, 2007 11:21 PM

    Hi Guy, are you playing with Bryan Ferry in Belgrade?
    We want to make a wel­come banner 😉
    And it would be plain stupid to carry it if you’re not there.…

  20. Guy Pratt - October 2, 2007 2:20 PM

    I am playing in Belgrade!!! Make ban­ners!! Hundreds!!!I want to see a sea of them when I look out from the stage!!!! Sorry, got a bit car­ried away..

    I am still using the picks from the 94 tour. It’s only PF who get them made for me!

  21. Chris Collis - November 1, 2007 5:49 AM

    Hi Guy,
    I’ve been a fan since Delicate Sound Of Thunder and I am now reading your book which, I must say, has had me laughing out loud a few times. If you ever bring your stand-​​up rou­tine to (western) Canada, I would love to see it.

    Cheers

    Chris
