Kevin John Morris (London, 1955) is best known as drummer with British rythm 'n' blues band Dr. Feelgood, and from his side project Shaman Spirits (featuring Oysterband's Dil Davies on drums).

He also recorded music with English Assassin, Trust, and Mickey Jupp.
When Dr. Feelgood stopped touring due to singer Lee Brilleaux (born Lee John Collinson) having cancer, Kevin Morris worked with Ludwig and DW drum companies in sales and marketing their drums in the UK and liaison with drum endorsees etc. He still has contact with that side of music business as Kevin is the distributor of Ufip cymbals in the UK.

Kevin says Keith Moon with The Who is his main source of inspiration: "Keith was the man who inspired me most, I always loved drums, and his enthusiasm was huge."
