In 2007, Smith, along with fellow Glenn Hughes alumni, guitarist Jeff Kollman and keyboardist Ed Roth, formed an all-instrumental band inspired by their shared love of 1970s funk and fusion.
Still unnamed at the time, the group, rounded out by bassist Kevin Chown, debuted at the 2008 NAMM show in Anaheim, California.
Frusciante again quit the band in 2008 and was replaced by Josh Klinghoffer in 2009.
As one of the most highly sought-after drummers, Smith has recorded with Glenn Hughes, Johnny Cash, John Fogerty, the Dixie Chicks, Jennifer Nettles, Kid Rock, Jake Bugg, The Avett Brothers, and Joe Satriani.
In 2010, joined by Dick Van Dyke and Leslie Bixler, he released Rhythm Train, a critically acclaimed children's album which featured Smith singing and playing various instruments.
Widely regarded as one of rock music's best drummers, Spin magazine placed Smith at #10 on their list of the "100 Greatest Drummers of Alternative Music" in May 2013.
The drummer is also known for his charity work especially with young musicians. Smith is also widely known for the strong resemblance between himself and comedian Will Ferrell, which has led to various comparisons over the years and eventually led to a joking public feud and drum battle for charity on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May 2014, which led straight into the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing a cover of Blue Öyster Cult's "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" in the show as a reference to the Saturday Night Live "More Cowbell" skit (in which Ferrell played fictional cowbell player Gene Frenkle).
