(Gibson) Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason recently talked about his memories of the first time the guys in Floyd bumped into The Beatles. Mason remembers being wowed by the chance to meet the biggest band in the world, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

He said the encounter happened in 1967, when Pink Floyd were working on their debut LP, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, and the Fab Four were putting together Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

"We were recording in Abbey Road, the temple of greatness, and they were recording 'Lovely Rita,'" recalled Mason in an interview the Wall Street Journal. "They were God-like figures to us. They all seemed extremely nice, but they were in a strata so far beyond us that they were out of our league." more on this story
