Nick Mason meets up with Brian Johnson to talk about their classic car collections.
The Pink Floyd drummer has a self-confessed ”disgusting” indulgence in collecting motors and he likes to meet up with the AC/DC singer to chat about their similar vehicle obsessions.
Speaking at the Classic Rock Roll of Honour in London on Tuesday night (13.11.12), he told BANG Showbiz: ”I’m supposed to be meeting up with Brian to talk cars next week. It’s great.
”Collecting classic cars has always tacked along with the music. The music is something I do which has allowed me to indulge to a disgusting degree in racing cars.”
The 68-year-old stickman has made no secret of his classic car collection – which includes a £23 million Ferrari 250 GTO – but the musician admits he had originally intended to keep the location of his haul of expensive motors a secret until they were the subject of a feature on Chris Evans’ radio show.
He added: ”They were meant to be kept in a secret location until Chris Evans broadcast it on the radio. They are in the West Country, somewhere in Cirencester.”
