As well as touring with the band he has also featured on their Grammy nominated album A Moon Shaped Pool. Clive’s recorded and toured with Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and his band The Strange Sensation and his CV includes collaborations with Hawkwind, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Tom Jones, Goldfrapp and Jeff Beck. His unique, free approach to playing, taste and discipline ensure he is in constant demand as a recording / studio drummer.
