Mick 'Woody' Woodmansey (born c. 1951) is an Englishmarker rock drummer from Driffieldmarker, Yorkshiremarker, best known for his work with David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars. He played on Bowie's albums The Man Who Sold the World (1970), Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) and Aladdin Sane (1973).

Woodmansey was replaced in The Spiders from Mars by Aynsley Dunbar, who played on Bowie's next album, the 1973 covers album Pin Ups. Woodmansey re-formed The Spiders from Mars for one album, along with bass player Trevor Bolder. This necessitated a change of personnel, with Dave Black on lead guitar due to the fact that Mick Ronson was unavailable and Pete McDonald supplying lead vocals. Guest keyboardist was Mike Garson, who had been a major part of Bowie's line-up from the Ziggy Stardust days. Bowie paid no contribution to the album which was named The Spiders From Mars.

After the final disbandment of the Spiders, he formed his own band, Woodmanseys U Boat, releasing a debut album U Boat in 1977. The album was subsequently re-released in 2006 as Woody Woodmansey's U-Boat (Castle Music ESMCD895)..

Woodmansey has also played with Art Garfunkel.

He played in the band Cybernauts, and currently features as drummer with 3-D.
