Stephen Morris

Stephen Morris, born Stephen Paul David Morris on October 28, 1957 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, is a British drummer, best known for his work with Joy Division and New Order (1980–1993, 1998–2007, 2011–present).

Throughout his music career, Morris has also worked with several other groups including The Other Two, a band made up of Morris and his wife, Gillian Gilbert. He has also performed live with the New Order spin-off band, Bad Lieutenant.

Within the Post-Punk and New-Wave music styles, Morris is known for his machine-like drumming that seamlessly wove with New Order's and Joy Division's drum machine sounds. In 2007, Stephen Morris was ranked No. 5 on Stylus magazine's 50 Greatest Rock Drummers of All Time.
