Nick Mason, drummer of the legendary British rock band Pink Floyd, has suggested that the group would be willing to reunite in order to do concerts for charity. The original Pink Floyd split in 1983 when Roger Waters, bassist and co-lead vocalist, left in order to pursue a solo career.

The band reunited for what was referred to as “one last performance” at the Live 8 concert in London in 2005. However, according to the BBC, Nick Mason has said, “I think all of us would like the idea of repeating the Live 8 concept.” The group could do “something that’s not necessarily for us, but do something for the right reasons and enjoy doing it,” he suggested. “That’s what I’d like and I think the others might well see eye to eye.” (See TIME’s Top Ten Celebrity Do-Gooders)

“I think it would be a very nice way for a band to gently move towards retirement, by doing shows absolutely for charity rather than for more income.” It seems Pink Floyd have stayed true to the message of their famous 1973 song “Money:” “Money… Is the root of all evil.”
