Ahead of our event with Nick at The John Peel Centre For Creative Arts on Thursday 11th January 2018 we caught up with the Pink Floyd drummer to get the lowdown on his Top 5 Albums Of All Time.

1. Bob Dylan – The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan

“Still the greatest song writer in rock music.”

2. Jimi Hendrix – Axis: Bold As Love

“Featuring not only the greatest guitar player, but also one of my favourite and the most influential drummers Mitch Mitchell.”

3. Thelonious Monk – The Thelonious Monk Orchestra at Town Hall

“One of my favourite modern jazz players of all time. His piano playing is a lesson in timing and percussion, as well as the music.”

4. Miles Davis – Jack Johnson

“Probably the greatest groove album of all time assembled by Miles and a stellar line up of players.”

5. Bruce Hornsby & The Range – Halcyon Days

“Love the songs, love the band and you also get a bit of Eric Clapton.”

Check out the podcast from our last event with Nick Mason at The V&A where we discussed Pink Floyd’s iconic The Dark Side Of The Moon.
