There is also a video of Clive Nolan playing a keyboard solo on Dragonforce's official website. Nolan has performed a number of concerts with Nick Barrett, Pendragon's lead singer, as Nolan & Barrett, playing what they describe as stripped-down versions of songs by Nolan's bands using only acoustic guitar, electric piano and vocals. One of such concerts was released on DVD as A Rush of Adrenaline (2006). Nolan released a double-cd and dvd called: She(2008), helped by a Polish female singer Agneiszka Swita and has already released a 5-track EP called: Closer. He is the founder member of The Caamora Theatre Company formed to produce and perform the Clive Nolan musicals.
