William Thomas “Bill” Berry (born July 31, 1958) is an American former musician and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the drummerfor the alternative rock band R.E.M. In addition to his drumming duties, Berry played many other instruments including guitar, bass guitar, and piano, both for songwriting and on R.E.M. records. After 17 years with the band, Berry left the music industry to become a farmer, and has since maintained a low profile, making sporadic reunions with R.E.M. and appearing on other artists’ records.

 R.E.M. was formed in 1980. In addition to his duties as a drummer, Berry contributed occasional guitar, bass, mandolin, vocals, keyboards and piano on studio tracks. In concert, he sometimes performed on bass, and supplied regular backing vocals. Berry also made notable songwriting contributions, particularly for “Everybody Hurts" and "Man on the Moon”, both from Automatic for the People. Other Berry songs included “Perfect Circle”, “Driver 8”, “Cant Get There from Here" and "I Took Your Name". The song "Leave" was also written by Berry for R.E.M.’s 1996 album New Adventures in Hi-Fi, which was his last album with the band.

Songs for which he is the sole composer include “Sky Blues” from 1973, “One Lonely Night” from 1984 and “Variety Tonight” from 1987. The latter two songs charted as Billboard singles, with “One Lonely Night” cracking the top 20.

His most notable playing includes the Hammond Organ solo on “Roll With The Changes” and the honky-tonk piano work on “157 Riverside Avenue”.
