Nick Mason News


Nicholas Berkeley "Nick" Mason (born 27 January 1944) is the drummer for Pink Floyd. He has been the only constant member of the band since its formation in 1965. He also competes in auto racing events, such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The son of the documentary film maker Bill Mason, he was born in Birmingham but brought up in Hampstead, London (many online biographies mistakenly cite the street address Downshire Hill – sometimes as "the Downshire Hills" – as a district of Birmingham) and attended Frensham Heights School, Surrey. He later studied at the Regent Street Polytechnic (now the University of Westminster), where he teamed up with Roger Waters, Bob Klose and Richard Wright in 1964 to form Pink Floyd's predecessor, Sigma 6.

Mason has been the drummer on every Pink Floyd album (but not on every song; some session drummers have been used).
