Roger David Glover (born 30 November 1945 in Brecon, Wales) is a Welsh/English bassist, keyboardist, songwriter, and record producer. Glover is best known as the bassist and songwriter for rock band Deep Purple, and he is also well known for his work with Rainbow.

After spending four years with Deep Purple, where the band saw their most successful releases in albums In Rock and Machine Head, Glover was dismissed by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and became a record producer for such bands as Judas Priest, Nazareth and Elf. He also released two of his solo albums, Butterfly Ball in 1974 (spinning of a #1 hit in Holland, Love is all, as Roger Glover & Guests), and Elements in 1978, before rejoining his former Deep Purple bandmate, Ritchie Blackmore, in his band Rainbow, where he worked on five of the band's albums. He also performed with David Coverdale in the initial version of his solo band, later to transform into Whitesnake. In 1984 he returned briefly to his solo career, recording his third solo album Mask. During that year, Deep Purple reformed and Glover returned to his old band, where he performs to this day. He has sinced played with Ian Gillan during his brief solo tour in 2006. In 2002 he released his third solo album Snapshot under the name Roger Glover & The Guilty Party. The album featured performances from Randall Bramblett (who sang on most songs and co-wrote some of them) as well as Glover's daughter Gillian. A follow-up to Snapshot was announced in 2007. The album, titled Close-Up is set to premiere in 2009.

Roger Glover is married for the second time and lives in USA. He has a daughter, Gillian (b. 1976), from first marriage.
