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.
