Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason recently clarified why and how F1 boss Eddie Jordan owes him money while speaking to Formula For Success Podcast with David Coulthard.
Mason and Jordan, apparently, first crossed paths due to their shared interest in motorsports [obviously], as the former racer recalled how he met the drummer in 1981, after losing the opportunity to drive for Porsche at Le Mans:
“I met up with a guy, Nick Mason. And Nick was an extremely nice, laid-back guy, and he said, ‘Jordan, would you like to drive the car? We won’t talk about the money involved at this moment in time, but I’d like you to drive the car.’ This was a BMW which was the worst car, which was entered by EMKA, which Steve O’Rourke was the manager of Pink Floyd.”
However, when Nick joined the podcast later on, the rocker claimed he’d never offered Jordan to drive the car commissioned by EMKA. He then also, jokingly, said the racer still had ‘money’ on the said car:
“Hi, DC and EJ. I’ve absolutely no idea how Eddie managed to get a drive at Le Mans in that car. I do know he still owes money on it, though. And after 30 years, you’d think he might be prepared to put his hands in his pocket. Clearly not.”
Later in the same chat, Jordan reported that his car, the BMW, broke down 21 hours into the race and he decided not to fix it and carry on. Instead, the former racer decided to pay a visit to Earlscourt to see a Pink Floyd show that same very night, and, perhaps, witness Mason doing, perhaps, what he does best: drumming.
And although Nick seems to have an avid interest in motor racing, when it came to Pink Floyd, the drummer was ready to sell his £30 million car just for the band, without a second thought. So, check out here to read how he staked his multi-million Ferrari for his bandmates.
