Paul Douglas Webb (born 16 January 1962) is an English musician.

Webb attended secondary school with Lee Harris, and the two became good friends. They played in the reggae band Eskalator before being recruited to form Talk Talk in 1981. Webb played bass for Talk Talk[1] until 1988.

In the early 1990s he and Harris formed .O.rang. In the early 2000s he adopted the name "Rustin Man" and collaborated with Beth Gibbons on Out of Season (2002).

More recently, in 2006, he produced the James Yorkston album The Year of the Leopard.
