Clive Edwards (born 19 January 1953, Hounslow, Middlesex, England) is a drummer, who is best known as a former member of the British band, UFO (from August 1989 to June 1993). He also featured on the Bronz second album Carried By The Storm[1] released on 1 January 2010.

Career[edit]

Clive Edwards is probably best known for playing with hard rock bands that have included outstanding guitarists, such as Pat Travers, Brian Robertson (Wild Horses), Uli Jon Roth (Electric Sun), Bernie Marsden, John Cale, and Laurence Archer of Medicine Head, and UFO. He is now with the HOUSE OF X.

There are also many other projects outside just hard rock, such as working with Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer with Zaine Griff, and also Sally Oldfield.

Edwards has played on many albums, most famously the acclaimed UFO albums High Stakes & Dangerous Men, Headstone, Lights Out in Tokyo Live and the legendary Uli Roth Earthquake. Clive Edwards formed a new band in 2007 called WireHead.[2] He is also involved with the re-formed British heavy rock band Stampede who toured in the summer of 2009[3] and also the AWE Band.

Edwards started playing at an early age, and formed a band with Ian Raines while they were at school together called Stallion. They made an appearance on a BBC Television show for Schools and later went on to become Rococo . A lot of this early information can be found on the Rococo web site. After the Rococo recordings, Clive has gone on to recorded and performed with HOUSE OF X, UFO, X-UFO, LOUDER LIFE LEAGUE, Bronz, Wild Horses, Pat Travers, Phil Lynott, Dave Stewart, Annie Lennox, John Cale, Ollie Halsall, Micky Moody, Bernie Marsden, SOS, Chris Thompson, Lionheart, Uli Jon Roth, Electric Sun, Neil Merryweather and Grand Prix. The full list of recordings seen here can be found on Clive's own web pages.
