Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason sat for a lengthy interview with rock scribe David Fricke. The nearly hour-long chat for season three of Front And Center Entertainment’s Speakeasy series featured a wide-range of topics about Mason’s life and 50+ year career in music.
Mason and Fricke talked about the London music scene that Pink Floyd came up in, including their early gigs at the UFO Club. The pair also touched on the band’s lack of groupies compared to their contemporaries, as well as Floyd’s memorable U.S. television debut on American Bandstand in 1969. Mason also shared stories about his life and family prior to joining the band, as well as meeting Syd Barrett for the first time and more. Watch the interview below:
