Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has reacted in a positive way to his former bandmate Roger Waters‘ decision to re-record The Dark Side Of The Moon without other band members.
Earlier this year, bassist-and-singer Waters revealed his plans to re-record the iconic 1973 LP in commemoration of its 50th anniversary this March.
Mason revealed that he knew about Roger’s 50th-anniversary project and was even sent a copy to listen to.
Instead of being upset, Mason thinks Roger’s re-imaginings are “brilliant” and is happy he is doing it.
Speaking at a playback of The Dark Side of the Moon in Dolby Atmos Immersive Audio at the Odeon Luxe in London, Mason said, “I heard the rumor that Roger was working on his own version of it. There was this suggestion that this was going to be a spoiler and Roger was going to go head-to-head with the original version and so on.”
“He actually sent me a copy of what he was working on and I write to him and said, ‘Annoyingly, it’s absolutely brilliant!’ It was and is,” he added. “It’s not anything that would be a spoiler for the original at all, it’s an interesting add-on to the thing.”
