G. E. Smith hails from a Lebanese American family his surname Haddad means ‘blacksmith’ in Arabic language. When he was only four years old, he began playing guitar, and three years later, he started to play on a C. F. Martin guitar. At the age of 11, his parents bought him his first electric guitar, so he could continue preparing for a career in the music industry. At that time, Smith began participating at a number of entertainment venues and began earning money.

In no time, Smith’s professional musical career began in the early ‘70s, when he became a member of Scratch Band alongside Mickey Curry, and during the same year he released his debut hit called “Instant Replay”, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. He decided to move to Manhattan, New York City, and became the guitarist for Gilda Radner’s show “Gilda Live”. Smith married her, and while they were together, he released his debut studio album “In The World” (1981), with her and Paul Simon. Parallel with that, he performed with David Bowie, and in 1979 he was hired as the lead guitarist by the band Hall & Oates, collaborating until 1985.

Smith is also known for being the lead guitarist in Bob Dylan’s touring band, and in 1992, he worked as the musical director for The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration for him at Madison Square Garden in New York. Subsequently, his second studio album “Get A Little” came out, released with the SNL Band in 1993. Thanks to his accomplishment there from 1985 to 1995, he won an Emmy Award, which added a considerable amount to his wealth.

In 1995, Smith established his own record label called Green Mirror Music, via which he released his third studio album “Incense, Herbs And Oils” in 1998. To speak further about his subsequent career, Smith has collaborated with a number of bands and musicians such as Moonalice, Hot Tuna, Roger Waters, etc. All of these considerably increased his net worth.
