Michael Timothy Curry (born 10 June 1956) is an American drummer, whose work has included performing on Andy Taylor's debut album Thunder released in 1987.


Mickey was born in New Haven, Connecticut, U.S. and started playing drums at 11 when he had lessons at school with a man named Nick Forte. When he was 13, he and two of his brothers formed a band called The Rack and later when he was 17 he joined the Scratch Band in Connecticut. He played in many local bands in Connecticut until around 1980, when he started working in studios in New York. While working in Manhattan, Micky joined a band called Tom Dickie and the Desires who were managed by Tommy Mottola, the manager of Hall & Oates. Impressed by Curry's work, Mottola asked him to record with Hall & Oates on their album Private Eyes. Around the same time he was working with Hall & Oates, Curry met producer Bob Clearmountain who had just begun working with a young Bryan Adams. Soon after this, Curry was playing on Adams' second album, You Want It You Got It. It was at this time that Curry started gaining notoriety.

He toured with Hall & Oates for several years and recorded with many successful artists. Curry toured with Hall & Oates until 1986 at which time he began touring full time with Bryan Adams. It is with Adams that Curry has achieved most of his success and fame and still tours full time with him today. Curry appears on almost all of Adams' albums.
