En hysteriskt rolig kväll med en engelsk twist – Guy Pratt, stå-uppare och basist som spelat med de största. Den här kvällen får du veta vad som egentligen hände backstage och på turnéerna…

“Wonderfully indiscreet” – Mojo
“Pratt is pretty bloody hilarious.” – The Irish Times
“Like being seated on a train journey next to the most interesting man you ever met!” – The Sunday Times

Basisten Guy Pratt har en imponerande CV: Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Gary Moore, Roxy Music, Madonna med många fler.

Numera är han även en framgångsrik som författare – hans bok My Bass and Other Animals rekommenderas – och inom stand-up comedy och det är i den skepnaden han kommer till Debaser.

Om boken ”My Bass and other Animals”:

Guy Pratt came of age just as playing bass became cool, with the likes of Paul Simonon and Bruce Foxton. Having dallied with Funkapolitan, Pratt suddenly found himself on Top of the Pops and supporting David Bowie with smooth Australian outfit Icehouse.

At a ludicrously young age Guy Pratt became a sought after bass player to the stars, finding himself crawling from studio to bar, from hotel to stadium portacabin with Robert Palmer, Womack & Womack, Bernard Edwards, Bryan Ferry and David Crosby, etc.

The eighties were in their prime and with a number of Crolla-suited appearances in windswept videos behind him, he was invited to join Pink Floyd for a series of stadium of extravaganzas to make Bono & Co. look fairly modest.

Pratt has recorded with Madonna and spent time in the studio with Michael Jackson. He was in The Smiths for a week, has travelled through customs in a wheelchair after a flight with Jimmy Page and has lived to tell all.

MY BASS AND OTHER ANIMALS emerges from the successful stand-up tour of the same name. It charts his journey from a Mod band in Southend to playing with Roxy Music at Live 8.
