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. He was in The Smiths for a week, and has travelled through customs in a wheelchair after a flight with Jimmy Page. Following the success of his live show at the 2005 Edinburgh Festival and the subsequent sell out tour of Australia, Guy Pratt’s narrates his bestselling book, My Bass and Other Animals, a witty, revealing but heartfelt memoir of life at the pointy end of the music business. When not playing with David Gilmour or Bryan Ferry, he continues to take the show around the world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Guy Pratt.

Boy, do I have a lot to learn! Anyone who´s ever picked up a musical instrument of any kind - from the first caveman banging rocks to that little kid at the guitar shop - has thought that. I know I did. I´d been trying for years to break in to the music scene, to show everyone my chops, to make my mark. And I was good. But I wasn´t great. I knew that there was something wrong. ´´Then the teacher showed up. I didn´t ask for him. I didn´t think I needed him. And all he said he could teach me was ´nothing´. ´´What happened next, you may not believe...I sure didn´t...but that didn´t stop him.´´ The Music Lesson is the inspiring story of a young bass player and the lessons he learns about Life, Music, and the Life of Music.

It´s not a matter of if you get hurt but of how bad and when. I can´t say they didn´t warn me. Right now, I realize: I probably should have listened. Because if there´s anyone who has no business playing a sport that requires a helmet, pads, and a liability waiver, it´s this girl. The same girl who once knocked herself out during a game of backyard baseball. I stepped up to the plate, pulled the bat back a little too far to swing, and clocked myself in the back of the skull. Boom. Lights Out Lucy. That´s how I got my roller derby name. So yeah. Maybe I should have known better. But what doesn´t kill you makes you stronger, right? That´s the whole reason I laced up a pair of skates to begin with. Well, that and this other little confession I need to make. Amid all the estrogen and girl power that fuels the world of women´s roller derby, this insanity may have started because of a guy. Eyeroll, I know. Sadly, today on the oval track, it´s about to come to a very bloody end. And all this slow-motion introspection might be part of my life flashing before my eyes. I´m going down hard and fast, with a set of Atomic Turquoise wheels aimed right at my face. Lights Out Lucy, indeed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Callie Dalton.
