Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason Thinks Apple Should Pay For That U2 Release
By Shannon Carlin
In a new interview with GQ, Mason talks about the “U2 debacle” stating he thinks “it’s been interesting seeing how badly that went down,” as in that surprise release that ended up on everyone’s iTunes.
But Mason is quick to admit that if he was offered the same deal, he would have taken it.
“If Apple had come to me and said, ‘Nick, we want to release your album in exchange for £50m’, I couldn’t have thought of a better idea,” he said. “Radiohead did something similar a few years ago [2008’s In Rainbows], and it worked. But this has backfired.”
Mason says this isn’t “an anti-U2 tirade,” but he does think that for as much criticism as the band got, Apple should get more.
