The 74 year old drummer is the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax, but took to Twitter to clear up the fake reports after a Facebook page RIP Nick Mason announcing his death had one million likes.
This morning, the drummer tweeted: "Recent reports of my passing have been greatly exaggerated… I think?"
His representatives also dismissed the reports, saying: "He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax.
"He's still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the internet."
Reports of the Brit musician's 'death' on social media and Google rocked fans as they took to Facebook and Twitter in disbelief.
Posting on his official Facebook page, one fan said: "Nick, why is Google saying you've passed, just sat there and cried.
"I then check to find anything on this and there's nothing! Is everything OK?"
Once the drummer rubbished rumours, fans welcomed him 'back from the dead' saying: "A million thanks for “Coming Back To Life” dear Nick! We don’t want you to leave us so soon.
"But on a serious note, these celebrity death hoax messages are quite sickening. "
