Pendragon (UK Progressive rock)
PENDRAGON were formed in Stroud, England.
Originally known as ZEUS PENDRAGON it was decided
fairly early on to drop the "ZEUS" as co-founder
Julian Baker felt it was too wordy to fit on a t-shirt!
There were several line up changes in the early days,
members included Julian Baker (co-founder/guitar)
Nigel Harris (drums) Stan Cox (bass) Robert Dalby (bass)
John Barney Barnfield (keys) Rik Carter (keys).
The one constant key element was Nick Barrett.
The line up then remained the same for almost 20 years,
featuring : Nick Barrett (guitar/lead vocal)
Clive Nolan (keys), Peter Gee (bass)
and Fudge Smith (drums), until 2006 when PENDRAGON
and Fudge Smith parted ways.
Pendragon are an English neo-progressive rock band established in 1978 in Stroud, Gloucestershire as Zeus Pendragon by guitarist and vocalist Nick Barrett. The Zeus was dropped before the band started recording as the members decided it was too long to look good on a T-shirt. There were a few personnel changes in the early days, but since 1986 the lineup has remained relatively stable (with only the drummer changing twice since then) and the band is still active as of 2016, with a busy European tour in April and May.
