Nick Mason's New York City Speakeasy event Print E-mail

Nick Mason event - Lincoln Center, New York City, November 2016

On Monday (November 14th), Nick Mason took part in a conversation with David Fricke, senior editor of Rolling Stone magazine, for the Speakeasy television series - the interview will be aired on PBS in the United States at some point next year. The event took place at the Lincoln Center, in New York City, and Jacqueline Bilello was on hand to report back on it. Our thanks to Jacqueline for this, and for the pictures seen here too.

The interview location at Lincoln Center took place in a very atmospheric penthouse loft with a spectacular view of New York City. David Fricke is known for his articles in Rolling Stone magazine and for conducting one of Kurt Cobain’s final interviews. David's commentary in various rockumenteries, as well as his vast knowledge of rock and roll makes him very suitable, in my opinion, to interview Nick Mason. No further introduction is needed as we all know who Nick Mason is.

We arrived at 7:30p.m. for the 8:00p.m. start time. After exiting the elevator on the 10th floor we were met with strategically placed Pink Floyd photo posters on easels showing Pink Floyd in their various incarnations along with several older publicity shots.

We were politely greeted by various staff members and camera crew, and as we stepped inside there was a small group of approximately 35 to 40 people. It took some time for them to set up their cameras and equipment. We were led to our seats, which were arranged in horseshoe formation around the two interview chairs, which looked like thrones by the way.

US public radio station NPR have just published a half-hour interview with Nick Mason about the newly released Pink Floyd The Early Years 1965-1972 box set. They talk with drummer Nick about his years with Pink Floyd — especially those early years that inspired the box set. Nick also plays DJ and picks music he loves that isn't Pink Floyd. They begin by discussing his role in putting this mammoth 27-disc collection together, and you can hear the show in full here:

There's also another interview with Nick, also on public radio, and this lasts for an hour. You can hear it through this link.

As many of you will know - and will have seen, either in the flesh or via the live worldwide stream (which is also available below to watch on demand) - to tie in with the release of the rather incredible Pink Floyd - The Early Years 1965-1972, which came out today, Nick Mason was in London on Wednesday night.

At YouTube Space London, a select bunch of lucky ticket winners joined the likes of the band's management and record company representatives for the launch event, which consisted of an unboxing, rare audio and video clips, and Q&As with Andy Jackson and Nick Mason, in the snug basement studio. The inside of the building featured massive reproductions of the box set/2CD set artwork, as well as multiple video screens showing all manner of Floyd footage, from different eras. All nicely done.

Hosted by BBC Radio 6 presenter Matt Everitt, the audience (local and global) were treated to a number of insights from Andy Jackson, responsible for the audio wizardry in the box set, before Nick Mason joined Matt on stage for his Q&A. Nick was at his typical witty best, and you can enjoy his answers in the following video of the night:

To tie in with the release of Pink Floyd - The Early Years 1965-1972, which came out today (and is quite incredible), Nick Mason is undertaking some promotional events, and the latest of these to be announced takes place on Wednesday, November 16th in New York City.

The event is being organised by AOL's BUILD programme, and Nick will be at their Broadway BUILD Series Studio at 11am EST for a live stream discussion of the box set, principally, but - like the event at YouTube Space London on Wednesday evening - we'd not be surprised if other subjects, including next year's Floyd exhibition Their Mortal Remains, are raised.

Tickets to attend the event are free, and you can make your reservation at now whilst places remain. Doors open 30 minutes before showtime, and valid ID will be required for entry. There is no age restriction on the event. For those unable to attend, the event will be streamed live on
