25 Great Moments in Rock Drumming – Day 13: Nick Mason, “Time,” from Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd

“Time” features an extended intro of tape effects and Nick Mason’s percussion. Mason pounds out a series of evolving patterns against Rick Wright’s dream-like keyboards, establishing a dark, brooding table for David Gilmour and Roger Waters to finally set. Beyond the classic introduction, Mason plays it by the book, leaving plenty of room for Gilmour’s soaring guitar passages. Ticking away, the moments that make up a great tune!

The beginning of Time is where drums become the lead voice … superb musicianship. Nice choice.
