Emmett Jefferson Murphy III (born December 21, 1964), professionally credited as both Patrick Murphy and Murph, is best known for being the drummer for the alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr. He was a member of the group from its founding in 1984 through 1993, and since the original lineup reformed in 2005.
In April 2005, Murph returned to Dinosaur Jr. with J Mascis & Lou Barlow, reforming the original line-up. The trio has released four Dinosaur Jr. albums since reforming: the comeback album Beyond in 2007, Farm in 2009, I Bet on Sky in 2012, and most recently Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not in 2016. The band has steadily toured the world since reforming.
