Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason spoke in an interview with Meltdown, and adressed the possibility of classic lineup reunion for Pink Floyd.
He sent a message to Roger Waters and David Gilmour, and said ‘I’m ready’. Here’s the statement:
“It’s the question everyone would like answered, but I don’t really think so. I think Roger and David [Gilmour] are happier doing their own things and not working together.
It would be great if they did, I’m ready, but I’m certainly not going to hold my breath.”
Interviewer asked ‘Do you ever sit back and think about the legacy of Pink Floyd?’, Nick responded:
“I try not to. What’s always interesting is sort of what we are doing now, and I think one of the reasons this band exists is because we actually spent quite a lot of effort a couple of years ago, putting an exhibition together in London at the VNA museum, which is sort of traveling around now.
That really was a sort of look-back through history, it was really interesting to do it, but at the end of the day, you go, ‘I really like what I’m doing now,’ rather than, ‘This is what I did 20 years ago.'”
On Avenged Sevenfold’s Wish You Were Here cover, he said:
“No, I haven’t heard that. I have to say I really like hearing our songs covered by people when they do their own interpretations of it.
I’m less enthusiastic about tribute bands where everything is done as accurately as possible.”
