Next Tuesday (May 20), Smith is releasing his first solo album, Halfway, Pleased, but the British rocker best known for the song Shout is listening to a different tune these days at home.
Smith has a six-year-old and an eight-year-old daughter, and while hes slowed down his touring schedule to spend more time with them, he isnt exactly pleased with his daughters favorite singing superstar, Miley Cyrus.
He says, I had to sit through a four-hour Hannah Montana taping and then take them to a gig! Im doubtful Ill be writing that kind of music, though.
He adds, I brought them to a Pussycat Dolls show. That was a little more acceptable, even though there was an inordinate amount of swearing.
But Smith turns the musical table on his kids when he takes Tears For Fears on tour he brings his daughters out each night to sing backup vocals on Shout.
