Pink Floyd Reunion Scrapped Due To Jemima Khan

November 26, 2010
Pink Floyd Reunion Scrapped Due To Jemima KhanPink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has revealed he turned down an opportunity to reunite with the band.

In July, bandmates Roger Waters and David Gilmour reunited for just 200 guests at the Hoping For Palestine charity gala at Kiddington Hall.

It marked the first time Waters and Gilmour had shared the same stage since Pink Floyd's appearance at Live 8 in 2005.

In an interview with the Independent, Mason said he was invited to take part but refused when he learned it would take place at a property owned by Jemima Kham, the daughter of Sir James Goldsmith.

"That particular event wasn't right for a reformation of Pink Floyd," he said. "I said I would do it, but it was a charity event for suits, and it felt wrong to turn a small thing into a big deal just because Jemima Khan was in attendance.”

He added: "Why play for a lot of posh totty instead of some of the other things we should save that up for – a Live 8 type of thing?"

In October, Mason said the group were considering repeating a similar concept to their last performance at Live 8.
