Guy Pratt - happy birthday! Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Friday, 03 January 2014

guy_on_t5m.jpgOur very best wishes go to Guy Pratt today (January 3rd), who is celebrating his birthday. Born in London in 1962, son of the actor Mike Pratt from Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased), Guy took to a career in music, which lead to his first world tour whilst still a teenager!

Working with the likes of Bryan Ferry and Robert Palmer lead to him being noticed by David Gilmour, who invited Guy to play for Pink Floyd in 1987. This lead to work with other major artists such as Madonna and Michael Jackson, but Guy has stayed loyal to David, performing alongside him up to the most recent tours.

Life as a musician on the road, and in the studio, inspired Guy to write his hilarious "My Bass And Other Animals" book, an essential read for any Floyd fan. He has toured his memories in a tour of the same name, and has also developed adaptations of the show, as well as presenting a new show, "Wake Up Call". Guy performed 17 shows last year, and let's hope he has more up his sleeve. Whatever your interests in music are, the shows (as with the book) give a mind-boggling and hilarious look at life with other musicians.

Many happy returns, Guy, from all of us at Brain Damage!
