Rock History

Welcome to the podcasting machine: Nick Mason speaks.

Pinkfloyd Nick Mason is currently making the rounds promoting his new book Inside Out: A Personal History of Pink Floyd and he is featured on a new podcast over at Fake Science where he talks about his new book, his musical inspirations and how the industry is changing. One interesting thing to note is that Mason has essentially buried the hatchet with Roger Waters but no, that doesn’t mean the Floyd will get back together. And if you are reading this and saying to yourself “Argh! A classic rock dinosaur. How could he be writing about this?” I say go to your rock and roll history books and read about the band in their Syd Barrett days. They were alternative before there was an “alternative!”The Piper at the Gates of Dawn still amazes me.
