Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason Denies Report That He’s Dead Nick Mason is not dead. I repeat not dead. But for a short period of time, some people thought so.
An internet prankster edited the Pink Floyd drummer’s Wikipedia entry to report that he died on March 1st in New York City. Google picked up the fake news which lead people searching for information about the band to believe Mason’s passing.
Mason took to Twitter with a humorous post saying, “Recent reports of my passing have been greatly exaggerated……i think?”
If anyone can edit Wikipedia at any time, how can we believe what is there to be true?
