Mason Thanks Cream For Career Direction
PINK FLOYD drummer NICK MASON would have become an architect if it wasn't for rock supergroup CREAM.
Mason and founder members ROGER WATERS, RICK WRIGHT and SYD BARRETT were students when they saw ERIC CLAPTON, GINGER BAKER and JACK BRUCE perform in the mid-1960s.
Mason says, "SUNSHINE OF YOUR LOVE turned me from studying architecture to rock 'n' roll.
"We were students at Regent Street Polytechnic and they played at one of our hops. That was the moment I thought, 'Yes, this is what I want to do.'
"I went to see their reunion shows at the Albert Hall (London venue) last year with Roger Waters.
"ALICE COOPER came over especially for that show. It's always nice to see Alice again."
