That’s what drummer Nick Mason is telling the BBC. Of course, the band did reunite for the first time in years back in 2005 for the Live 8 concerts. And Mason claims if some similar good cause presented itself, Floyd could return to the stage.
“I think all of us would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept,” Mason told the news organization, adding that the rock legends could do “something that’s not necessarily for us, but do something for the right reasons and enjoy doing it.”
Mason says that “what I’d like, and I think the others might well see eye to eye.” Wow, that would be fantastic. I was working at MTV News when Live 8 happened, but I had to cover the Philadelphia gig, which sucked. I would have much rather have been in foggy London town seeing one of the best bands to ever enter a recording studio rock balls. I would be do excited if this happened. My dad and I would have to go see the show, no matter where it is. Man, make it happen Nick. In fact, I have a charity for you. It’s called “The Gun Shy Assassin Pizza and Sushi Fund for Brilliant Writers.” We’re having a fundraiser in my living room next week.
Apparently, the sole reason why the band’s not reunited like The Eagles stems from Roger Waters’ and David Gilmour’s long-running animosity. The dudes had falling out during the 1980s, but the Live 8 concert managed to bring the two together once again.
