Drummer

Born on April 24th, 1951, in London, England. He has worked with various artists, including Thompson Twins, Kim Wilde and Strawberry Switchblade before joining The Cure in 1984. He helped The Cure recording the studio albums "The Head On The Door", "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me", "Disintegration", and "Wish". During this period he was also part of the group's live line-up. Williams left the band in 1993 and then started Babacar (2) with his then girlfriend Caroline Crawley.
