Johnny "Bee" Badanjek (born 1948, Detroit, MI) is an American musician, singer, songwriter and painter. At 16, Badanjek was the drummer for the Detroit rock and roll band, Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels.

After the group disbanded in 1967, Badanjek toured and recorded with Edgar Winter, Alice Cooper, Dr. John, Bob Seger, Ronnie Montrose, Nils Lofgren, and others. In 1972, he co-founded The Rockets, in which he currently is drummer and backing vocalist, as well as songwriter.
