The band Pendragon was formed in England in the late 1970’s. The band was formed by Nick Barrett who had originally named the band Zeus Pendragon. The band Pendragon did not release their first album until 1985 entitled The Jewel. Three years went by before the release of their sophomore album entitled Kowtow. From that point on, the band continued to release albums every couple of years. From 1985 to 2017, the band Pendragon has released eleven albums. Their last release as of this writing was 2017’s live album Masquerade 20.

The band’s founder and guitarist Nick Barrett and bass player Peter Gee have been with the band since 1978. Like all rock bands that formed during the 1970’s or 1980’s there have been personal changes. The band’s current lineup in 2017 includes Clive Nolan on keyboards and Jan-Vincent Velazco on drums. The band Pendragon have gone through seven drummers throughout the years. Reminds me of a movie I once saw.
