Kevin Godley (born Kevin Michael Godley, 7 October 1945 [ [http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll Allmusic.com] ] , Prestwich, Lancashire, England) is a British musician and music video director.

He was born in a family of Jewish descent, and went to North Cestrian Grammar School in Altrincham.

While attending art college in Manchester he met Lol Creme. They became part of several bands together, most notably Hotlegs and 10cc, and eventually became known as Godley & Creme in acting together as musicians and directors. They were jointly nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Music Video, Long Form for: The Police: Synchronicity Concert in 1986. [ [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0324137/awards IMDb.com] ]

Godley writes, sings, and plays drums and percussion. In 1990 his charity production "One World One Voice" was released on CD in the UK.

He has recently reunited with another former 10cc member, Graham Gouldman to form the band, GG/06. Together they have recorded a number of new songs which are currently available via their website - [http://www.gg06.co.uk/ GG06.co.uk] .
