HB Nick Mason!

I am so happy to celebrate Pink Floyd's drummer Nick Mason birthday today! Did you know he is the only constant member of Pink Floyd and the only one to be featured on every one of their albums. Knowing I had photographed Pink Floyd and had pulled out 4 strips of black and white plus a couple of color slides when Rick Wright passed away less than a year after Everybody I Shot Is Dead came out, I didn't expect to find any photos of Nick Mason in the Pink Floyd/Rick Wright folder. And there would have been no possibility of finding the rest of the PF pictures. 

I hesitantly opened the contact sheet, fingers crossed, and found this gem...

I love this video of Time (co-written by Nick Mason) from the Earls Court concert in 1994. Amazing song and visuals...

 
 

Rick Wright

Tomorrow, July 28th, is Richard Wright's birthday. He was a founding member and integral part of the band Pink Floyd. While he may not have been known as well as Dave Gilmour and Roger Waters, he wrote several of their best songs and contributed much of their sound.

This is fun...the development of Rick Wright's song, Us and Them, with pie.
