To see full images and details go to:
Neal Smith Outfit, With Pants Worn on Back Cover of Love it to Death (1971). These multi-colored, patchwork velvet pants, fashioned by Cindy, the band's seamstress and Smith's sister, are prominently seen as worn by Neal Smith on the back cover of the landmark 1971 effort Love it to Death.
Neal Smith Stage-Worn Side Button Trousers (circa 1973). Alice, Neal, and guitarist Glen Buxton each purchased a pair of these side-button trousers from a Florida tailor (incidentally, the same tailor who had made pants for Jimi Hendrix!), and Smith wore these on stage during the Billion Dollar Babies era.
Neal Smith Road-Worn Black & Gold Spanish Bolero Jacket. As a part of Neal Smith's road wardrobe while on tour throughout the early-mid 1970s, this black-and-gold Spanish-styled bolero jacket fit right in with the rest of the seminal band's eccentric clothes. Imported from Mexico by Henderson & McMillan of Los Angeles, the jacket is comprised of 100% wool, with marbled plastic buttons, and flat gold thread trim.
Neal Smith Stage-Worn Sequined Pants (circa 1972). Here we have a pair of black spandex, cotton, and blue-sequined pants worn on stage by original Alice Cooper drummer Neal Smith, during the flamboyant Shock Rock band's incredibly successful tour behind the platinum-selling smash School's Out. These glitzy trousers can also be seen on the cover of the Alice Cooper The Essentials compilation, sported by Neal Smith in a group shot.
