Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason spared some time in February to take part in a charity concert in aid of the Tsunami appeal. The concert, held at the Olympiad in Chippenham, Wiltshire, England, on February 5th, was a big draw, despite the presence of Nick not being known until he walked on stage.

We posted some information and a selection of exclusive pictures on February 21st, 23rd, and April 1st. With much thanks to one of the organisers, Chris McCormack (aka Mac), we can now bring you the news of more pictures, and also where you can download video footage of Nick performing both songs from the night - "I Saw Her Standing There" and "You Really Got Me"!

If you visit their website - - you can download the songs. The first clip is "...Standing There" and is around 21MB; the second is "You Really Got Me" and that's a fairly sizable 66MB. However, Nick's drumming comes across strongly, and the camera focuses on him throughout the performances, with little deviation to the other performers. The band as a whole is a good tight unit, and the songs are very enjoyable, so if you have a fast connection to the internet, definitely worth downloading.

There are also eleven pictures of Nick with various performers and guests, to be found on the site. These are all informal backstage snaps - most of the pictures we've featured on our site of the concert itself cannot be found elsewhere!

Our thanks again to Mac (Chris McCormack) for his help... and congratulations to Mac and the others for the superb amount they raised for Tsunami relief!
