Two of the surviving members of Pink Floyd have expressed an openness to reunite the legendary British band. Bassist Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason told The Telegraph they would be willing to perform together at the Glastonbury Festival.
The Pink Floyd band mates appeared together at a recent promotion for their art exhibition The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains at the V&A museum in London, England. Mason was asked about the possibility of reuniting for another Pink Floyd performance, to which he replied:
It would be nice to add it to the list of things. I’ve never played Glastonbury. It would be fun to do it. I don’t think it would be very likely.
Waters recalled a chilly appearance he made at a prior Glastonbury, while adding to Mason’s comment that “Yeah, I would do it again.” He then added that he thought fellow surviving Pink Floyd member David Gilmour was retired, despite the guitarist touring last year in support of Gilmour’s solo album Rattle That Lock. “I heard [Gilmour] retired, then he seemed to unretire,” Mason said.
Gilmour and Mason released the “final” Pink Floyd album The Endless River in 2014, featuring posthumous contributions from founding keyboardist Richard Wright, who passed away in 2008. Waters was not involved in the project. Mason, Waters and Gilmour last shared the stage together at Live 8 in 2005. Waters and Gilmour’s last live collaboration occurred in 2011 at the O2 Arena in London. In August of 2015, Gilmour stated in an interview that with regard to Pink Floyd he was “done with it.”
