There was a mini Pink Floyd reunion of sorts earlier this week in London when Roger Waters and Nick Mason gathered for a plaque unveiling honoring the 50 anniversary of the band’s formation.
Per Reuters, NBC News and Consequence of Sound, the formation was honored with a Regent Street Heritage Plaque, which is only the second in existence. The very first plaque was unveiled at the location of the building featured on the cover of David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.
Pink Floyd’s early beginnings, of course, can be traced back to when Waters, Mason and Richard Wright were students at the Regent Street Polytechnic, which is now part of the University of Westminster.

Waters and Mason were rather honored by the recognition and made light of their early beginning in the video below saying they could have never passed a reality show audition.
