'Wonderfully indiscreet ... Pratt's self-deprecating wit is irresistible' Mojo. MY BASS AND OTHER ANIMALS is a witty and revealing but heartfelt memoir of life at the sharp end of the music business. Guy Pratt has played bass with anyone who's anyone in music. From Madonna and Pink Floyd to Roxy Music, Michael Jackson and The Smiths, his bass-playing credits reads like a Who's Who of rock. His show of anecdotes from his rock life was a huge success at Edinburgh in 2005: 'What tales he has to tell,' Independent. 'He regaled the audience with hilariously indiscreet anecdotes about the stars he's worked with' Spectator. Guy is a highly promotable and well-connected author. He continues to work with major bands, and tour with his own stand-up show.
Guy Pratt started out in eighties band Icehouse, who suddenly found themselves supporting David Bowie on his 'Serious Moonlight' tour of 1983. Since then he's played bass with everyone, from The Smiths, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson and Madonna, through to Iggy Pop, The Pretenders and Echo and the Bunnymen. His live show was a success at 2005's Edinburgh festival and, when not playing with David Gilmour or Bryan Ferry, he's been on the road with it since then.
