Terry Chambers (born 18 July 1955) is an English drummer and was a founding member of the band XTC, appearing on the 3D - EP, White Music, Go 2, Drums and Wires, Black Sea, English Settlement, and many live recordings, until his departure from the band during the 1982 sessions for Mummer. On Mummer he played on "Beating of Hearts", "Wonderland" and the B-side "Toys". Chambers' reasons for leaving the band included the band's decision to stop touring and performing live, as well his own plans with his Australian girlfriend, with whom he subsequently migrated to New South Wales.


Chambers was born in Swindon, Wiltshire. He 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 became involved in session-drumming while living in Australia as well as recording and touring with the band Dragon between late 1983 and 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".

Terry has been married to Donna Blanchard since August 1982. They have one son, Kai, and two daughters, Corie and Abbi-Lee. Kai has followed in his father's footsteps, and has played in Australia and around the world as the drummer for October Rage.
