Anthony Tillmon Williams was born in Chicago and grew up in Boston. He was an American jazz drummer.

He is also considered the inventor of the blast beat, a technique that would become an important element of punk rock and heavy metal drumming. Williams primarily used Gretsch drums, Zildjian cymbals and Remo drumheads. He also held the distinction of being the first Zildjian artist to have a signature drumstick made for him by the company in 1991 as part of their Artist Series drumsticks and it is still in production to this day as of 2014.
