Tim Gorman is an American producer, composer, arranger & keyboardist born and based in San Francisco. He has worked as a session musician from the 1980s until the present, his most notable collaborations being with Duane Eddy, Paul Kantner, The Rolling Stones and The Who.[1]

Gorman took part in the recording of The Who's It's Hard and the subsequent tour in 1982.[2]

His work with Paul Kantner goes back to the KBC Band in 1985-1987. He then took part in the Jefferson Airplane reunion in 1989. Gorman was one of several keyboardists on the reunion album and played live with the Airplane in the supporting tour. He was then a member of Kantner's band Wooden Ships, along with guitarist Mark "Slick" Aguilar in 1991-1992. Wooden Ships was joined on some of its later gigs by singer Darby Gould (formerly of World Entertainment War) and Airplane/Hot Tuna bassist Jack Casady.

This soon became the core line-up for the new incarnation of Jefferson Starship with the addition of drummer Prairie Prince and fiddler Papa John Creach, later rejoined by former Airplane co-founder Marty Balin. Gorman stayed with Jefferson Starship as a permanent member until 1995, appearing on the live album Deep Space / Virgin Sky and playing on two tracks for the studio album Windows of Heaven. He has teamed again with them occasionally on some of the Galactic Family Reunion concerts in 2006.[3]

Gorman currently plays in the band Parallel View, a duo with guitarist Kirk Casey[who?].[citation needed]
