Amery Smith is a musician who has performed on tour with Beastie Boys since the
early 1990s. Smith, whose nickname is AWOL, is best known for his work with Suicidal Tendencies, DFL, BS

On past Beastie Boys tours, Smith has played drums when Mike Diamond does vocals on a hardcore song. One

Smith formed BS 2000 with Adam Horovitz in 1997. They toured following the

radio stations to play 45 rpm records and talk about what makes BS 2000 different than other bands.
