Mason Saves Drum Shop


Nick Mason recently stepped in to save London's Foote's drum shop, where he bought his first drum-kit, from closure.

'I was very disappointed when I heard that Foote's was going to close, because one of my great memories of being a young, budding drummer was going to the original shop in Denman Street and buying my very first kit for £7.50.' - Nick Mason, ITV News

Mason would go on to form his first band with this equipment before making music history with Pink Floyd.

'Armed with this devastating kit I joined my friends to form The Hotrods. The fact that none of us knew how to play was only a minor set back.'  - Nick Mason, INSIDE OUT
