David Walker (born 25 January 1945, in Walsall, Staffordshire, England) is a singer and guitarist for a number of bands; notably Savoy Brown and Fleetwood Mac. He shortened his name to Dave Walker. He started his career in the early 1960s with a Brumbeat R & B band called The Redcaps; and continued into the 21st century, with Donovan's Brain.

Other bands he played in include Beckett, Idle Race, Hungry Fighter, Raven, Mistress and Black Sabbath.

Walker was raised by his strict grandmother in a household where rock and roll was not allowed to be watched on television. His first experience with public singing came at a very young age at a Methodist church, where Dave volunteered to sing "Away in a Manger". As teenagers, Dave and his brother Mick formed a "backyard skiffle" group which played at weddings and youth gatherings.
