Nick Mason at O2 London, 12th May 2011Rolling Stone have just interviewed Nick Mason on the historic scenes at London's O2 Arena last week, when David Gilmour and Nick joined Roger Waters during his Wall show there.

Nick, who made a return visit to the O2 Arena last night to watch the show again, revealed his surprise last Thursday. "It hadn't ever been quite finalized – there'd been talk about maybe playing in Paris or something else, so it was very nice to get there and see that [David] was there". He added: "It was really nice to be sort of part of it and to show support for Roger, not that he really needs it. I suppose it's nice to have Roger wanting to register David and myself as part of it, in a way. It was sort of a mutual thing: it was nice to be recognized but also very nice to lend support to Roger and make it clear that we're not sort of punching it out in these auditoriums. We're not critical of him doing it."

The full interview provides a fascinating look at their thoughts, and the preparations for the guest spots. He also plays down the possibilities of future repeats of last Thursday night, or even a full scale reunion. "It was a very nice thing to do but it could become a bit cliché if we kept climbing to the top of the Wall and kept hugging each other onstage. I mean, I think enough is enough. I mean, we're English after all. We don't do that hugging thing a lot."
