Ivan "Ivica" Vdović also known as VD (23 February 1961 – 25 September 1992) was Serbian musician, drummer of Yugoslav rock bands such as Suncokret, Šarlo Akrobata and Katarina II.

In the third grade of gymnasium, Vdović became a member of the band Limunovo drvo led by Milan Mladenović.[1] He later played drums in Bora Đorđević's band Suncokret, but became famous as the drummer of Šarlo Akrobata whose other two members were Mladenović and Dušan Kojić.[1] He stayed with Šarlo Akrobata from April 1980 to October 1981, and then joined Mladenović to form Katarina II together with Bojan Pečar, Gagi Mihajlović and Margita Stefanović. After Mihajlović left the band, the name was changed to Ekatarina Velika, but Vdović soon left the band in 1985.[1]

The same year, Vdović was tested HIV positive. He was the first person in Yugoslavia to be officially registered as HIV positive. He died of AIDS on September 25, 1992 and is buried in Belgrade.
