Drummer Nick Mason said about his favorite Pink Floyd cover bands:

“I do really like it when people do cover our songs and do their interpretations of it. I’m always a little bit sarky about tribute bands, because I’d prefer to hear… I love Dub Side of the Moon, for the sort of reggae feel to the songs. And there’s another one, Luther Wright and the Wrongs, who did The Wall as a country and Western album, I thought was terrific.”

Nick Mason talked about the tour, saying:

“All being well, we’re going to start rehearsing the end of next week, in fact, with the idea of hopefully being in America the beginning of next year and UK and Europe after that. We don’t do new songs. It’s like going into an antique shop and saying, “I want something contemporary.” No, we’d definitely like to increase the repertoire, though, for sure. There’s a surprising amount of material there.”

“The cut off is, up to, but not including Dark Side. And so with film tracks and early records and all the rest of it and singles, there’s still quite a way to go. It’s interesting as well, I think, that there is a difference between the USA and Europe, for sure. In that the Americans, I think because we were more successful in Europe, early on, and less so in the USA, so people are less familiar with the early records in America. And so you get people saying, “I’ve never heard this song. What is it?” And so on. Whereas in Europe, you’re more likely to have people going, “Oh yeah, I remember that.”

I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
