Standup comic and legendary bass master Guy Pratt (Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Icehouse) joins host Jeremy Dylan to chat about the iconic rock concept album about alienation and adolescence - The Who’s 1973 rock opera “Qaudrophenia”.
How did Quadrophenia kickstart a mod revival? How easy was it to understand the story of the album? What is the meaning of the lyrics to 5:15? What makes the bassline on ‘The Real Me’ so unique? Did Guy really buy one of Who bassist’s John Entwistle’s bass guitars? What word has Guy never been able to say to Pete Townshend? Has the Who influenced Guy’s bass playing?
Plus, Guy reveals why he’s played in both Pink Floyd and a Floyd tribute band, how he almost got sued after playing Whole Lotta Love with Jimmy Page at the Olympics and some Pete Townshend stories he heard from David Gilmour.
