guy prattWell, the latest Brain Damage competition has now closed. As we've mentioned before, Guy Pratt's new book, "My Bass and Other Animals", is published at the end of this month, and we had five copies, all signed by Guy, to give away to BD visitors!

The book promises a warts'n'all look at his life on the road and in the studio, including much on his work with David Gilmour and Pink Floyd over the years.

Those who have seen Guy's "My Bass And Other Animals" show will know how hilarious it is, taking the audience through his musical history, involving such luminaries as Madonna, David Crosby, Michael Jackson and David Bowie, alongside sections on life with Pink Floyd and David Gilmour. The book itself should cover even more ground, and we cannot wait to read it!

And so to the five lucky winners of our competition... We've gone through all the correct entries (and there were plenty of them!) and whittled them down to five lucky people, picked at random from the pile. Our congratulations go to:

Espen Olsvik, from Aalesund, Norway
Christopher Hughes, from Westbrook, Australia
Sunil Mathur, from Worthing, England
Stefan Demarbaix, from Loch Lomond, Scotland
Marko Zwijnenburg, from Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Well done to the above, and better luck next time to all those who weren't lucky - we've got another competition coming soon, so don't despair!

For another chance to win, visit Play.com where you can enter their competition to win one of Guy's bass guitars! No purchase necessary to enter it, meaning you can still buy the book using our Amazon links below, helping out Brain Damage!

To give a taste of the show (and book), here's another clip of Guy in action, revealing what can happen when you fly with Jimmy Page:

To order a copy of the "My Bass & Other Animals" book (at time of writing with a healthy discount), for delivery upon release, you can use the following special links: Amazon UK, Amazon Canada, Amazon Germany, or Amazon France. Please note that all the Amazon stores will ship the book worldwide. Also, using our Amazon links helps with the running costs of the site and we really appreciate it!
