We recently had the pleasure of interviewing bassist Guy Pratt, who was in Edinburgh staging a very successful one-man-show looking at his long musical career, which has involved working with such artists as Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson and Madonna.

Recently described as "Pink Floyd's bass player for when the band are arguing", he has worked with them since 1987, in the studio and on the road.

We've been back in contact with Guy, at the conclusion of the run of dates in Edinburgh, to find out how it went. He told us that it had all gone extremely well. With the positive press reports (a number of great reviews), tickets for the show were selling out in the final couple of weeks.

On being asked what the future holds, Guy said that there are all sorts of plans afoot - these may include a radio series of his memoirs, along with the book that he's started writing, and he is also hoping to tour the show around the UK.

He also wondered if there was any interest in doing a "Floyd special" version of the show - just about his experiences with them - for the Floyd community. We're sure he has plenty of good tales to tell - he joined the band in 1987, after Roger Waters left, and has recently been working on David Gilmour's solo album, coming out next year.

If you'd like to see such a show, please get in contact with us. We will pass your views on to Guy for his deliberation!
