Robert Smith was brought up in a musical family, with father James Alexander Smith a singer, and mother Rita Mary Smith a pianist, so at a very young age he took not only piano lessons, but also guitar lessons. He attended St. Francis Primary School, later transferring to St. Francis Junior School in Crawley, West Sussex, as his family moved there. After elementary education, he went to Notre Dame Middle School and St. Wilfrid’s Comprehensive School. As a 13-year-old boy he was already a member of several bands; along with brother Richard, sister Janet and their friends, he was a member of the band called The Crawley Goat Band, and even before founding this band, Smith has performed with friends from Notre Dame Middle School in the band named The Obelisk, which later became The Easy Cure in 1976, and then just The Cure.

Beside Smith, The Cure featured Paul Thompson, Michael Dempsey, and Lol Tolhurst. With the band he has released 13 studio albums, a number of live recordings and also EP’s and compilations albums, all of which, have increased Smith’s overall net worth. The band has changed several members; however Smith remained the only founder member through the years of its existence. The band’s first full length album was released in 1979, entitled “Three Imaginary Boys”, but a different version of the album was released for the USA market, with a different name – “Boys Don’t Cry”. Although it received positive critiques from various music magazines, Smith wasn’t quite satisfied with the debut album. Nevertheless, he continued making music, and the next year, Robert and the band released their second album, entitled “Seventeen Seconds” (1980), on which they focused more on a gothic sound, and which they continued to incorporate in their next few albums, making Smith the “Godfather Of Goth” and extending his overall net worth by a large margin.

The Cure released two more albums, before their name hit with the public, “Faith” (1981), and “Pornography” (1982), after which Smith changed the genre of the band’s music, switching from goth to pop rock, with the first album which entered into the top 10 UK chart list, “Top” (1984).
The album also managed to enter into the US Billboard top 200 chart on the No. 180. Since then, Robert has became one of the more noted musicians in pop history. With the Cure, he has released eight more studio albums, such as “Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me” (1987), “Disintegration” (1989), “Wish” (1992), which also reached No. 1 on the UK Top Albums, and No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in US, “Bloodflowers” (2000), and their last studio release “4:13 Dream” (2003).

Apart from his successful career with the band Cure, Robert has also collaborated with numerous musicians and bands of the rock music scene, which also increased his net worth. Robert performed and recorded with acts such as Siouxsie and the Banshees, Billy Corgan, Placebo, and numerous others.

Regarding his personal life, Robert Smith has been married to Mary Theresa Poole, his high-school sweetheart, since 1988, but they mutually agreed at the beginning of the marriage not to have any children.
