Guy Pratt came of age just as bass playing became sexy. Having dallied with punk legend Sylvain Sylvain, Pratt suddenly found himself on Top of the Pops and supporting David Bowie with smooth Australian outfit Icehouse. He became bass player to the stars, crawling from studio to bar and hotel to stadium Portakabin with the likes of Pink Floyd, Robert Palmer, Womack &Womack and Bryan Ferry. Guy has recorded with everyone from Madonna and Michael Jackson to McFly.

Would you consider the audio edition of My Bass and Other Animals to be better than the print version?

Yes - especially as the author reads it, you get all of the nuances that he intended.

Have you listened to any of Guy Pratt’s other performances? How does this one compare?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
