Nick and Roger interviewed about further reunion Print E-mail

Nick Mason and Roger Waters were recently interviewed for Italian magazine, Famiglia Cristiana (Christian Family), in which they are asked about a future reunion, and specifically refer to a peace effort for the Middle East.

Their reported comments are brief, and nothing should be read into them - there are no plans for any shows. However, it is good to hear that they are not discounting the possibility of future collaborations, should a good cause and opportunity present itself.

They start by asking Nick, in the light of the recent Live 8 concert, if we'll see them together again in the future for a new album or tour. "At present, there is absolutely nothing concrete, but it would be beautiful to get together again and perform once more in the future. Live 8 was a wonderful, entertaining event."

They follow by asking what Nick thinks of a concert to promote peace in the Middle East? Nick: "Actually, there are no plans for this project. At Live 8 someone asked me about my future plans. First, I once again expressed my desire to organize something similar, for some suitable cause that music can make a big contribution to. And now there is clearly a right moment for organization of a big concert advancing the peace in [the Middle East] region and drawing alive attention to this theme. Live 8 was not a lone event to impress on politicians of the rich Countries to do more for the struggle against poverty: it was one of many. For this purpose, for me the idea of a concert for the sake of peace in the Middle East has ripened. I hope, sooner or later, it will manage to be realized".

Roger was then asked if his participation in Live 8 became an expression of his political convictions? "Undoubtedly, but it was also an opportunity to see David Gilmour again. And it was really delightful."

Would you participation in a similar event with Pink Floyd? "Why not? I don't exclude the possibility..."
