The only constant in every Pink Floyd lineup since its mid-'60s inception, drummer Nick Mason played on recordings during the Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour eras. He's also the writer of some of the band's most memorable tracks, including 'One of These Days,' 'Echoes,' 'Interstellar Overdrive,' 'A Saucerful of Secrets,' 'Speak to Me,' and 'Time,' among others. Along the way, he's worked with Steve Hillage, the Damned, Gong and Robert Wyatt, and released one solo album, the jazz-focused 'Nick Mason's Fictitious Sports.' In keeping with his long history in the band, Mason has remained friends with both Gilmour and the long-departed Waters, and has appeared onstage with both recently. In addition to his lifelong passion of music, Mason is a classic car enthusiast and racer.
