Neal Smith (born September 23, 1947 in Akron, Ohio) was the drummer for the rock group Alice Cooper from 1969 to 1974. He performed on the group's early albums Pretties For You and Easy Action, the breakout album Love It to Death and the subsequent successful albums Killer, School's Out, and Billion Dollar Babies. His last album with Alice Cooper was Muscle of Love.
It has been stated by Alice Cooper and Bob Ezrin, producer of the band, that Smith would frequently call the drummer of The Who, Keith Moon, and ask him how many drums he had. It was a priority of Smith's to always have one more drum than Moon.
Since the early 1980s Smith has sold real estate in New England. He is also still active in music, and has performed with Alice Cooper during a show in 1998.
Neal Smith is currently the Drummer/Percussionist and Songwriter for "Bouchard, Dunaway & Smith (BSD)".
