Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason discussed his Saucerful of Secrets tour in a new AZ interview, and Roger Waters offer to come onstage and reunite with him at a show.
On Roger Waters offering to reunite for a performance with him on the ‘Saucerful of Secrets’ tour:
“I thought it would be sort-of a courtesy to tell them both what I was doing. And they were great.
“Roger threatened to come down and play sometime. I think one day David might do the same. He lent me loads of equipment that we needed to go out. So they were both great, actually.”
On giving up on a full fledged Pink Floyd reunion:
“Finally, even I gave up. After 20-something years, I was absolutely tired of waiting for the phone to ring with Roger [Waters] or David [Gilmour] going, ‘C’mon guys, let’s get the band back together.’
“I thought, ‘Forget that. It’s not gonna happen.’ I really got to the point where I thought I could never work again.”
On 2017’s Pink Floyd: Their Mortal Remains exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum contributing to his tour:
“It was very successful. A lot of people came. But it suddenly just made me feel like the Tower of London or something. It was all about this ancient history.
“And there was that feeling that the one thing that was lacking was actually playing music. So that was a catalyst for me, I think.
“I ended up talking quite a lot about the history of the band and so on but the reality is what I really wanted to do was play some music.”
