Floyd Reunion Nixed By Mason

Recent news that surviving Pink Floyd members are all agreeable to a reunion if the right cause and venue could be found (story) led to at least one invitation that has been declined.  The Independent reports that Roger Waters, Nick Mason and David Gilmour were approached about playing together at a charity event but turned down the proposal after finding out that the concert would be staged at the home of a former wife of wealthy Pakistani cricket player Imran Khan. Mason was quoted by the source as saying the event, '...wasn't right for a reformation of Floyd.'  Although the cause that would benefit from proceeds from the concert was not named, the drummer made clear that the band prefers to play for a larger and less exclusive audience than for a few donors willing to pay huge sums to attend what in essence would be a house concert.  The three last played together in 2005 with the late keyboard player, Richard Wright, for Live 8 in 2005.  Gilmour and Waters performed together this past summer at a club event (story).
