New Nick Mason interview talks about Pink Floyd's future Print E-mail

On the Launch.com website, a short interview with Nick Mason has been posted. The drummer makes it clear that there's no sign of new activity from Pink Floyd any time soon.

"I don't think so," he said. "I mean, I think it's, it's always there on the back burner as a possibility, but I think Dave particularly wants to do some other things at the moment. I mean, he's doing some solo stuff, which I think he's really sort of quite caught up in. You know, my experience is that if people want to do solo stuff, that has to be got out of their systems before they'll ever get around to working in a band again".

But Mason, who also races cars and is considering some film-music projects, says he's ready to reactivate Pink Floyd whenever Gilmour and keyboardist Rick Wright - who's currently working on a solo album - are willing. "Definitely. I don't feel I've retired yet," he said. "You know, if everyone wanted to, we could certainly still do something. I've spent 30 years waiting for the planets to align. I'm quite used to it".

Roger Waters signs Washburn guitar deal Print E-mail

Just announced is a deal that Roger Waters has signed with top guitar manufacturer, Washburn. Here's the press release in full:

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has signed an exclusive Electric-Acoustic Washburn Signature Guitar deal. Roger will be playing his new RW300 on his In The Flesh 2002 world tour and beyond.

Roger has been playing the Washburn RR300 for two years now. When Washburn approached him about a Signature Limited Edition, he gladly agreed to work with us on this special offering. The RW300 brings together a Seymour Duncan P90 style pickup and a Fishman preamp with a piezo bridge. These pickups, in conjunction with the chambered mahogany body and solid spruce top, reduce the chance of feedback and give the RW300 an accurate and vibrant acoustic tone.

Roger was the creator and sonic architect of such undeniable classics as Dark Side Of The Moon (which spent nearly 15 years on the Billboard 200 album chart), The Wall (which has been certified 23x RIAA platinum), Animals, Wish You Were Here, and Final Cut. Following Final Cut, Roger Waters left Pink Floyd.

His first full-length solo album, The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking was released in April 1984 to great critical and popular success, generating his first solo tour. June 1987's Radio K.A.O.S. continued the path of solo success, bringing Roger back to the stage. His last full-length solo album, the moody and ironic Amused To Death, considered by many to be a comparable achievement to Dark Side Of The Moon or The Wall, was released in August 1992.

Waters has been working on Ca Ira (pronounced sa-ira), an opera in English and French, a new rock album to be released in 2002 and Echoes the best of Pink Floyd, which was re-mastered by long time Pink Floyd producer James Guthrie.
