Thank you all for sending in your “There once was a Guy who played bass…” limericks.
It wasn’t easy to choose the best, as there were so many good ones.
So, we took the coward’s way out.
Guy and I chose 15 of our favourites, put 15 names into a hat and picked two. The first name pulled out at random wins a signed copy of Guy’s new book, ‘My Bass and Other Animals’, and one of his very own ‘Didn’t They Do Well?’ T-shirts, as worn throughout the ‘On An Island’ tour and voted by you recently to be one of the tour’s most memorable images.
The second name drawn also wins a signed copy of said book.
So, congratulations to Veronica from Miami for being the first name drawn, and to Ayako, our runner-up.
Please let us know where we should send your prizes.
If it’s any consolation, our other favourites were sent in by (this is in alphabetical order, not order of preference): AxPxM88, Cemet Nosce, Geoff Duffy, Gary Hurley, KenF, George Maciver, Marco, Mike from Michigan, Frank Par, Steve, Christine T., Tim Taylor and Knut Arne Vedaa.
Considering how many excellent entries there were, making it onto the short-list was, in itself, quite an achievement.
Thank you all for making us chuckle.
If you didn’t win, you’ll still want a copy of the book, I’m sure.
‘My Bass and Other Animals’ will be released later this month, published by Orion Books.
My thanks again to Guy for kindly giving up his time and clothing, not to mention two copies of what promises to be a fine book.
