Sir Timothy Miles Bindon Rice (born 10 November 1944) is an English Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Tony Award and Grammy Award-winning lyricist, author, radio personality and television gameshow panellist.

Rice was born at Shardeloes, a country house near Amersham, Buckinghamshire, England that was requisitioned as a maternity hospital during World War II. His father Hugh served with the Eighth Army and reached the rank of major during World War II, whilst his mother served in the WAAF as a photographic interpreter. After the war they both worked for the de Havilland aircraft company. Rice lived in Croxley Green, Radlett and Hatfield in Hertfordshire as a child and was educated at Aldwickbury school, St Albans School and Lancing College. He left school with GCE A-Levels in History and French and then started work as an articled clerk for a law firm in London, having decided not to apply for a university place

He is best known for his collaborations with Andrew Lloyd Webber, with whom he wrote Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita, and his work for The Walt Disney Company with Alan Menken and Sir Elton John. He also collaborated with Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of ABBA on Chess and with Rick Wakeman on the concept albums 1984 and Cost of Living.
