Stephen Andrew Perkins (born September 13, 1967) is an American musician and songwriter. A drummer and percussionist, he currently plays with Jane's Addiction.

Following the dissolution of Jane's Addiction, Perkins, a native of Los Angeles, continued to play with frontman Perry Farrell in the rock band Porno for Pyros. His own project is called Banyan and in the 1990s he was involved in Lil' Pit with Mike Watt. In 1992, he appeared as percussion player on Rage Against the Machine's self-titled first album and in 1995, he contributed percussion to the Red Hot Chili Peppers song "One Big Mob" on their album One Hot Minute (Fellow Jane's Addiction member Dave Navarro was the guitarist of the Chili Peppers during the making of that album.) Perkins also played drums on Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral on the track "I Do Not Want This".

In addition to Banyan, Perkins worked with Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro, former bass player Chris Chaney (bass player on the third Jane's Addiction studio album Strays) and singer/guitarist Steve Isaacs on a project, entitled The Panic Channel from 2004 until 2007.
