Chadwick “Chad” Gaylord Smith (Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States, October 25, 1961) is an American musician. He is best known for being the drummer of the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he recorded eight studio albums and of which he is a member from 1988 to the present. Smith is also the drummer of the hard rock band Chickenfoot and the instrumental band Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats, and has collaborated with numerous artists such as John Frusciante, Glenn Hughes, Jake Bugg, Dave Navarro, Dixie Chicks and Johnny Cash, among others.
Throughout his career, Smith has received several awards. Readers of Rolling Stone magazine voted Chad the 13th best rock drummer in history, and Spin magazine placed Chad at number 10 on the list of “The 100 Greatest Alternative Music Drummers.” On the other hand, it is ranked number 6 on the list of “50 Best Drummers of All Time”, as well as ranked number 10 on the list of “The 20 Best Drummers of the Last 25 Years”, Both lists published by the magazine Rhythm. Chad was also named by the DRUM magazine! Magazine as “Funk Drummer of the Year” for a total of 12. In 2012, Chad was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame as a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Smith started playing drums at age 7. During his adolescence he had several jobs but none seemed to satisfy him since his only interest was to practice and perfect his ability to play. He graduated from high school “Bloomfield Hill’s Lasher” in 1980 and from there he began playing with several bands. He also attended the “Andover High School” and “Lahser High School”, graduating from the latter in the year 1980. While still in school, he left home for a while. When he returned, his mother sent him to a boarding school. He worked in a number of jobs while playing in various bands.
Later, at age 20, she moved to California, where her brother Brad lived, and ended up in Los Angeles, where she joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers. After playing in the band Toby Redd, Chad gained a very good reputation as a drummer. He was the last to audition for the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the reputation of “eating breakfast for breakfast”. During the audition, Flea and Anthony were pleasantly surprised by the power, skill and rhythm of this “giant”. He ended up joining the band in March 1989. Chad’s style fit perfectly with what they were looking for. However, according to the autobiography of Anthony Kiedis, Scar Tissue, after the first audition for the band, Anthony Kiedis told him that he would be admitted to the band if he first shaved his head, as proof of devotion to the band, but above all, because of Kiedis ‘aversion to Smith’s Rock and Roll hair style (Anthony Kiedis compared it to the style of Guns N’ Roses, long hair and bandana), as it was not the image of the punk funk band. Smith returned the next day with his hair still in a handkerchief, however, Anthony allowed him to stay, realizing his stubbornness and according to Flea, because they liked his funk-groove style. Smith’s tenacity in maintaining his long hair was the greatest, probably due to the discomfort with his entrances, thus clarifying the reason why he almost always wears a cap.
Although mainly known as the drummer of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smith excels in more than a hundred albums, not including those recorded with his current band. He has also traveled extensively throughout the world since he is conducting drummer meetings. He recently attended a series of meetings with one of his heroes, Ian Paice of Deep Purple. Chad is currently developing a parallel project called “Chickenfoot” with former members of Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony, along with the famous guitarist Joe Satriani.
Former Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes recorded an album in Chad’s “home” studio in late 2005, early 2006.
