Pink Floyd on tension caused by musical preferences: 'The conflicts helped us do good work'

Drummer Nick Mason has opened up about the tensions that plagued Pink Floyd over the years and confessed that ego wasn't ever really a factor in their spats. 

When asked by BANG Showbiz if personality clashes ever caused problems, he said: "I don't think it's that. I think it was to do with musical preferences."

"He (Roger Waters) did want to do things his own way, so maybe that was the best thing to do was to do his own way. I think we have our reputations, but most of the bands you see aren't much better than we are."

Mason went onto add that tension ended up being a driving force because it made their creative work the absolute best it could be: "The other important thing is that if we didn't have the conflicts we had then we wouldn't have done the good work we did do."
