Terry Chambers

Born 18 July 1955.


Terry Chambers (born 18 July 1955, Swindon, Wiltshire) is an English drummer and was a founding member of XTC, appearing on all studio and live recordings until his departure from the band during the 1982 sessions for Mummer, on which he played on "Beating of Hearts", "Wonderland" and a B-side, "Toys".

Chambers originally wanted to learn to play the piano, but his parents could not afford to buy one. So instead he saved money from his Saturday job, stacking shelves at the local grocers, and at the age of 14 bought his first drum kit.

He moved to his wife's native Australia, drumming with the band Dragon (late 1983 to mid 1985). He was featured on the Dragon albums Body And The Beat (1984) and the live album and live home video Live One (1985). He is also featured in the promotional video clips for the songs "Wilderworld", "Cry", "Magic" and "Rain".
