Jim Mothersbaugh (born (1956-01-18) January 18, 1956 (age 64) in Akron, Ohio) was the second drummer for Devo, replacing Rod Reisman who only played for a single show. Jim joined Devo with his older brothers, Bob and Mark.

Jim appears on several early Devo demos. Later he performed as an equipment technician for the band on the 1980 tour, and worked at Roland through much of the 1980s helping to develop MIDI technology.

He is currently living in Akron, Ohio raising his family, one son and one daughter, and still makes time to make appearances at the DE-VOtionals - an annual Devo fan gathering in Ohio which has been held in both Akron and Cleveland.
