    And like every times… I’m late! Happy Birthday to you Mr Pratt!!!

  2. Jonesey - January 9, 2008 2:11 AM

    Guy,

    Safe travels to you and the family. And wel­come home when you get in.

    I’m chat­ting up your book to friends. I realize that Idaho is “the sticks” com­pared to a lot of the world, but was dis­ap­pointed that I couldn’t find it in shops locally. Perhaps your book people can spur that along with the larger retailers. Let me know if there is some­thing I can do locally.

    Toodles.

    Dave

  3. Graham Knight - January 9, 2008 1:09 PM

    Guy, i got your book for xmas, a great book, the trouble was i read it too quickly, i could n’t put it down . Apart from the Floyd & Roxy stuff i was sur­prised by other great musi­cians you have worked with & i also realise i dont have the sta­mina to be in a rock band ! (musical ability aside)

  4. Guy Pratt - January 9, 2008 3:37 PM

    Dave
    The book is only avail­able on import. I’m working on get­ting a US deal, with hope­fully a tour to follow..

  5. Phoenix - January 9, 2008 6:46 PM

    Just men­tioned you and the book to one of my techs when he was making bass jokes. And I actu­ally have my bass with me today, because one of my coworkers is going to show me how to fix the bloody thing once and for all. It also needs a good restringing, much like my strat and the acoustic.

    Time to raid the music store!

    Nix
    (having had too much sugar already today, whee!)

  6. karen - January 9, 2008 11:57 PM

    Hi Guy,

    It’s nearly a month later, can I ask what you thought of the Sydney show ? And would you con­sider doing more Australian shows later down the track ?

    Karen.

  7. karen - January 10, 2008 12:01 AM

    And oh, did you finish the book yet ?

    Karen

  8. Guy - January 10, 2008 6:18 PM

    I really enjoyed the Sydney show and am trying to get a tour organ­ised for next year…Finished the book ages ago!
    xG

  9. Bran - January 10, 2008 8:39 PM

    Good luck with the show on planet rock Guy.
    I wont miss it!
    Cheerio!

  10. Graham Knight - January 11, 2008 10:11 AM

    Guy,
    i have been reading com­ments on your blog & have recog­nised quite a few names from another well known blog appearing here.

    Welcome back to a damp London by the way, bet your really enjoying the weather after Bali (not).

  11. Paul - January 12, 2008 12:44 AM

    Welcome home Guy, and I trust that the Bali trip was relaxing before get­ting stuck into the year that is 2008 !

    Just won­dering if you could shed some light on the ses­sions for the Jerry Burns album you did in 1992. I really like this album ( very Blue Nile(esque ), and was won­dering what hap­pened to her. I know she wrote the song ” This Love ” for Craig Armstrong’s first record, but since then has disp­peared off the radar.

    Happy New Year Guy, and all the best for 2008.

    Cheers
    Paul

  12. Phoenix - January 12, 2008 2:19 AM

    That was a good listen, and really not bad for being late at night and jet­lagged, as you said. As for the ‘tech­nical issues’, my sta­tion has a name for them, after the poor DJ who may not have invented ‘em, but he sure pop­u­lar­ized ‘em. We call them ‘Chris Waffle Moments’, and I think he got kinda mad at us one night when we were teasing him mer­ci­lessly about it during the middle of his show.

    Still, ‘didn’t he do well?’

    Thanks for the enter­tain­ment, as always. Looking for­ward to next week’s show.

    Cheers!

    Nix,
    Working on her own playlist for tonight, aie!

  13. Guy - January 13, 2008 12:13 PM

    What Jerry Burns album?

  14. Paul Sexton - January 13, 2008 1:11 PM

    If Paul is right you need another hol­iday!!

  15. Paul - January 13, 2008 1:31 PM

    This is the album I’m refer­ring to. Maybe you were mis­cred­ited. If so.…Apologies Guy.

    Jerry Burns — Vocals
    Bobby Henry — Piano, Guitar & Keyboards

  16. Guy - January 14, 2008 12:30 PM

    So I did…Can’t remember any­thing about it I’m afraid…I used to do a lot of records for Stephen Hague..

  17. Paul - January 16, 2008 6:05 AM

    No problem. Just love that record. Maybe you could add it to the ” discog­raphy ” that is pretty bloody impres­sive if you don’t mind me saying.

    Those Stephen Duffy albums still remain favourites of mine. I met Stephen in Melbourne last year as the R.W jug­ger­naut rolled through, and he was an absolute gent. I have a great DVD with you and S.D doing ” I Love You ” on TOTP with the Steinberger in full force. I’m trying to get one at the moment, but they are quite hard to find these days. In the 80’s everyone had one. They have a sound al of their own !

    Anyway.…The ” Geek Factor ” sign is flashing, so I’ll be off to col­lect my pun­ish­ment.

    All the best Guy

    Cheers
    Paul

  18. karen - January 18, 2008 7:28 AM

    Just checked out Plant Rock web­site, this a reg­ular gig for you now?

    I will listen in for the first time tomorrow morning.

    Like the Poke Pratt idea.

    Karen.

  19. Ed and Marie - January 18, 2008 5:11 PM

    Hey Dave (from Idaho),

    I hear you; I just moved to New Hampshire (near the Boston area) from Utah… hard to find stuff out there some­times. I gotta say though, I see Guy’s book all over the place when I visit the UK. I sus­pect once Guy seals a US deal it will be easy to find any­where. Ditto to what you said: if there’s any­thing we can do to help get the book and tour this side of the pond let us know!

    The Planet Rock gig sounds like a pretty sweet deal too.

    Ed

  20. karen - January 19, 2008 2:00 AM

    Guy,

    Just fin­ished lis­tening to your show for the first time.

    Very much enjoyed. Keep it up.

    Karen.
