Steve Gorman (born 17 August 1965, Muskegon, Michigan) is a musician best known as the drummer of the American hard rock band The Black Crowes. He also spent some time as drummer for British rock band Stereophonics.

Moving to Hopkinsville, Kentucky from Severna Park, Maryland in 1975, Gorman began drumming in school in the fourth grade by playing snare in his school elementary band. Like so many others, Steve was initially inspired and moved when he first listened to the Beatles. Gorman later attended college at Western Kentucky University but still found time to play, practice and stay in touch with music.

In February of 1987, Steve moved to Atlanta, Georgia to focus more on music. While in Atlanta he became good friends with Chris Robinson and his brother Rich. When the Robinson brothers lost their drummer Jeff Sullivan to the band Drivin’ and Cryin’, Steve was asked to sit in and play on “Mr. Crowes Garden’s” demo session for A&M records. He ended up playing with the renamed Black Crowes for their first 9 albums over 15 years. In early 2002, Steve decided to leave the band to pursue other avenues and relocated to Los Angeles.

Steve spent 2004 on the road with the U.K. band Stereophonics. Steve’s playing can also be heard on Warren Zevon’s final studio recording “The Wind”, Bob Dylan's “Greatest Hits Volume 3”, Jack Casady’s “Dream Factor”, Joe Firstman’s “The War Of Women”, Bo Bice's "See The Light" and John Corbett's self-titled debut album.

In 2005, Steve rejoined the reformed Black Crowes. His brother, Robert D. Gorman, is the managing editor for the Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, 65 miles north of Syracuse. Robert's son and Steve's nephew, Matt Gorman played forward and center for the Syracuse University basketball team. He was a freshman on the 2003 national championship team, but did not play in the championship game.
