In 1988, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were looking for a replacement for their drummer D. Smith was one of the last drummers to audition for the band and the band felt that on looks alone, Smith would be the wrong fit as he looked more hair-metal than punk. It went on to be nominated and win several awards and is listed on many critics lists of the best albums of the year.
Nonetheless, the band was blown away by his audition. Shortly into the tour for the album, Frusciante quit the band in 1992 and was replaced by Arik Marshall for the remainder of the tour.
Smith and the Chili Peppers wrapped up I'm With You World Tour in April 2013.
The Chili Peppers launched another lengthy tour in May 2013 and it kept them on the road until June 2014.
Smith spent his early years in various rock bands, starting in high school with a band called Paradise, where they won the battle of the bands in Birmingham, Michigan, in 1977.
That first band included members, Jay Yang (bass), Scott Porter (lead guitar) and Tom Auch (roadie).
