Stephen Paul David Morris (born 28 October 1957 in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England) is a musician in the Manchester based rock band New Order. Although he is primarily a percussionist, he also plays keyboards. He also drummed in the band from which New Order was formed, Joy Division, and in The Other Two, a band made up of Morris and his wife, Gillian Gilbert. Morris is known for his machine like drumming that is seamlessly woven with New Order's drum machine sounds. He attended The King's School, Macclesfield (the same school as the late Ian Curtis who was also in Joy Division). Early on, Morris was a strong contender to become New Order's lead vocalist, and his voice can be heard on some early tracks (especially live versions). He also contributed musically to as-yet-unreleased demos by Quando Quango. Something of an eccentric, Morris has been called "daft as a brush" by bandmate Peter Hook. Morris used some of his fortune to purchase several military vehicles. He and Gilbert live in Rainow, outside Macclesfield. Together they formed the side-project The Other Two. They have together two daughters, Tilly and Grace. In 2007, Morris and Gilbert remixed two tracks for the Nine Inch Nails remix album Year Zero Remixed. In June 2009, he, along with other members of New Order (except Peter Hook) formed a new band called Bad Lieutenant along with Blur guitarist Alex James. Their debut release is due in Autumn 2009.
