Terry Williams (born 11 January 1948 (or 6 June 1947 ), Swanseamarker, Glamorganmarker, South Walesmarker) is a Welsh rock drummer, whose resume includes work for Dire Straits, B. B. King, and Bob Dylan.

During the 1960s, Williams played in a few bands, including The Smokeless Zone and Dream. After Dream split, he joined Dave Edmunds' Rockpile, until in 1970 he joined the Welsh rock group Man, which included two former Dream and Smokeless Zone members, Deke Leonard and Martin Ace. With Man, he appeared on 7 Studio albums, 3 Live albums and 2 Various artists, Live albums. When Man split in 1976, Williams re-joined Edmunds, and continued working with Leonard.

Between 1981 and 1982, he was part of the Neverland Express band, backing Meat Loaf, and in 1982 joined Dire Straits, with whom he played until 1988 (a period that included their live album Alchemy: Dire Straits Live and Brothers in Arms). In 1996, he rejoined Man, after John Weathers left, but left Man again in 1997.

Williams now runs a blues club in Swansea.
