Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason recently claimed that he’s “tempted to make himself available” for a potential reunion of the legendary prog band, as reported by The Sun.
Nick Mason opens up on the matter
The legendary prog band has been in the news recently after Roger Waters announced that he would be re-recording the iconic ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ LP without his former bandmates for its 50th anniversary.
Discussing his interest in a comeback for the iconic group, Mason said:
“You never know what will be thrown up. I’m tempted to say I’m available for anything.”
The drummer had previously weighed in on Roger Waters’ re-recording of Pink Floyd’s seminal 1973 album “The Dark Side of the Moon”, saying:
“[Waters] actually sent me a copy of what he was working on and I write to him and said, ‘Annoyingly, it’s absolutely brilliant!’ It was and is. It’s not anything that would be a spoiler for the original at all, it’s an interesting add-on to the thing.”

In a new piece by Stuart Maconie in The New Statesman titled ‘The war within Pink Floyd’, the author referenced Waters’ current project of re-recording ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’.
The article discussed the process, saying: “Parts of this will involve him removing, as quote in Spain’s El Pais newspaper, Gilmour’s ‘horrible guitar solos.’”
In a Facebook post Waters took exception to the quote, calling the story “the usual, shit stirring, ill informed nonsense” and criticising what he called the “unearned condescending authority” of the piece.
