Drummer Nick Mason Would Consider a Pink Floyd Music Game
It’s no secret that older musicians are not to thrilled with the idea of the whole music genre in videogames. They somehow believe that these plastic instruments will deter kids from actually playing with the real ones. While I totally disagree with this theory and actually think it encourages the kids to give an actual guitar a try; this is a real concern in the music community.
Nick Mason, who is the drummer for the legendary band Pink Floyd, is also agreeing with the countless musicians who are not a fan of this particular genre. Though, he’s willing to set aside his beliefs for a moment, why? For the all almighty mighty-dollar, of course. “I think we’d consider it,” Mason said, when ask if there is a possibility of a Pink Floyd rhythm game. “Everyone’s looking at new ways of selling the music because the business of selling records has almost disappeared.”
It’s great to know Mason is willing to set aside his own principle to make a little extra cash. Remember, we are currently in a global recession and the last thing I would want to see is Pink Floyd checking out the dollar menu at McDonald’s.
If we ever do see the day when Rock Band: Pink Floyd is launched, I really hope the song I embedded above is included. It’s also the perfect theme for this post.
