As previously reported, the Pink Floyd catalog is getting a massive overhaul and reissue campaign from EMI that will begin on September 26, encompassing CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, digital formats, viral marketing, iPhone Apps and more. Drummer Nick Mason says a "mellowing with old age" is what caused he and bandmates David Gilmour and Roger Waters to warm up to the idea of the catalog overhaul. "It is a sea change from our point of view," Mason told Billboard.com. "We'd never put much thought into the idea of releasing incomplete or earlier versions of things, but I think the world has changed. One now looks at these things and realizes there really is interest and how things came about and what the early versions were and so on. We thought rather than just leave everything in the vaults, it might be worth bringing everything out and giving people a complete view of what we've done." Of course, the reissue campaign brings many questions of a full Pink Floyd reunion tour, and Mason said there are no plans for it, but he will never say never. "The long and short of it is, I live in hope. I'd love to actually do something together again," he explained. "All of us are open to invitations to do things; the only thing that would drive it would be some sense that... there's some particularly good reason to do it together rather than separately. Perhaps we're getting a bit older and more appreciative of just how much it can mean to our fanbase to see us together. I think we just have to wait and see."
