Pink Floyd Drummer Saves His Old Drum Shop
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.20.2012



ITV reports that Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason has spent money to keep the shop where he bought his first drum set, Foote's in London, from going out of business. The store originally opened in Soho in 1920.

He said: "I was very disappointed when I heard that Foote's was going to close because it is one of my great memories of being a young, budding drummer was going to the original shop in Denman Street and buying my very first kit for £7.50. The thing about a drum shop… it's the place where information gets passed around. You hear about new things, if you need a drum lesson, the best place to go is probably a drum shop and ask them for advice. There's a drum culture that is centered on drum shops. I think I will try not to be too hands on. I doubt I'll be much help really…I don't think I'm going to be behind the counter on a regular basis."

The store will re-open at a new location at 41 Store Street, Bloomsbury, London.
