“They did it the wrong way around," the drummer argues.
The U2 album debate continues to rage with Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason telling Rolling Stone that their latest Apple hook-up "does devalue things. Music has been horribly devalued by being given away - it’s funny they didn’t sense any of that. It’s been the big story of the 21st century.
"They did it the wrong way around and I’m fond of saying that we did it in a very old fashioned musical concept," Mason says of the new Floyd album, The Endless River. "We’re hoping people might actually buy this record. (The U2 release) was so unexpected, I thought, and interesting that people took such umbrage at being given something."
