Nick Mason: "I doubt there will be a Pink Floyd reunion"

music news 24/12/2021

Nick Mason doesn’t think his band Pink Floyd will reunite unless it’s for charity.

The 72-year-old drummer of the iconic prog rock band hasn’t given up on the idea of the ‘Comfortably Numb’ hitmakers getting back together, but he doesn’t think it will happen unless it is for a good cause.

Asked if he thinks the group will tour again, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “I would say absolutely not. But having said that I certainly don’t think there will be another Pink Floyd tour. Hopefully if we were going to do something it would have to be for the right reason like generating peace in the Middle East or feeding Africa or whatever.”

Nick said the reason their Live 8 show in 2005 – which saw him he reunite with Roger Waters and David Gilmour – worked was because they put their “differences” aside to focus on raising money and awareness of poverty in Africa.

He said: “With the show for Live 8 that everyone whatever their differences and unresolved issues would be put aside. It would have to be something for more than our own egos.”
