The way Nick Mason remembers it, Pink Floyd did a lot of learning on the job.

Mason looks back at Pink Floyd's early years during an interview with AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson on his AXSTV show, Brian Johnson's Life on the Road. In a clip from the show, Johnson talks to the drummer about how Pink Floyd went from doing 20 shows in 1966, to 200 of them in 1967.

"We were all really amateur," Mason recalled. "Forget the number of gigs. If you looked at the number of hours that I'd been playing drums, it was pretty minimal. I just played a bit for fun. By the time we signed that (first) record contract, I had maybe 100 hours of drumming in my life."

Over the course of the show, the pair talk about Nick Mason's lifelong love of cars, and his current collection that's valued in the tens of millions. Mason also reveals how he first met Roger Waters, who was trying to borrow a car off of him at the time.

See the full episode this Sunday, Oct. 20 at 9/8c on AXS TV. In the meantime, watch the trailer below.
