Keith Forsey (born on 2 January 1948 in London, England) is an British soundtrack composer, drummer, songwriter and record producer.
As drummer and long-time associate of producer Giorgio Moroder, Forsey can be heard on several Donna Summer albums until 1981. He co-wrote several songs on the albums Bad Girls, The Wanderer and I'm a Rainbow. Forsey also formed a dance band called TRAX with Moroder's co-producer Pete Bellotte and produced two dance albums.
Forsey's powerful drum sound was the mainstay of many Moroder productions during the 1970s including Sparks seminal electronic album "Number One In Heaven", "Get On The Funk Train" by Munich Machine (Moroder/Bellotte's in-house band), as well as various other studio/disco acts based in Munich at this time such as Boney M. He also played on Moroder's early 70s international breakthrough novelty Moog synthesizer hit "Son Of My Father", along with an as yet undiscovered Donna Summer.
Forsey was also well-known as the producer for Billy Idol. Forsey began working with Idol in the '70s when he was lead singer for UK Punk band Generation X and stayed with him into his solo career, producing the albums.
