Pink Floyd’s Drummer Nick Mason Hopes the Band Will Play Together Once More
British Supergroup Pink Floyd known for their progressive rock and surreal approach to music, have been plagued by band members falling out over the years including Roger Walters, and Dave Gilmour.
Their drummer however, Nick Mason is hoping that the band will at some point come together once more to play some of the classics they have become renowned for. Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Mason said he thought a full bloodied tour would be "very unlikely", but at some point the band would reform for one off gigs, for "the right reasons."
"I live in hope that we will play together again," he said, "but it is very unlikely that we will go out on tour."
Last year Pink Floyd were due to come together to play a charity gig, hosted by the ex wife of cricketer and politician Imran Khan, Jemima Khan. The band pulled out of it due to the audience and the low key profile of the event. At the time Nick Mason told British Newspaper, The Independent: "That particular event wasn't right for a reformation of Pink Floyd. I said I would do it, but it was a charity event for suits, and it felt wrong to turn a small thing into a big deal just because Jemima Khan was in attendance."
Pink Floyd last came together in 2005 where they played the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park.
