Steve Forrest (born September 25, 1986) is a drummer with the band Placebo.

Before joining Placebo, Forrest was drummer for the Ambient rock band Evaline. He announced his intention to leave Evaline in January 2007,[2] but remained with the band throughout their 2007 United States tour.[3]

During that tour, Evaline opened for Placebo, and Forrest came to be acquainted with them. In 2008 he took the vacant seat of Steve Hewitt.

Unlike Placebo's previous two drummers, Forrest plays right-handed, not left.

Forrest's first set with Placebo for "Live at Angkor Wat" in Cambodia, was his most memorable gig.[4]

Forrest also contributes vocals and rhythm guitar for the indie/soul band É Florentino. He is also the songwriter and frontman for band Planes.[5]
