Terry Bozzio Interviews Nick Mason of Pink Floyd
“Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”
This month we have an excerpt of a special interview between legendary progressive drummer and composer Terry Bozzio and rock icon Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. The questions came in from Drum Channel subscribers during an exclusive live-stream event. We’ve also included a transcription of the first thirty-two measures of “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun,” which is one of Mason’s personal favorite sections to play from the entire Pink Floyd discography.
