Smith is the former frontman of 1970s progressive rock act Crystal Ship (which is also the title of a song by The Doors), and it is fairly obvious from listening to his radio broadcasts that he thought pretty highly of the group, especially his contributions to it. It is not known when the group dissolved or if they were still active by 1992, the year Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is set. Smith is suprisingly calm and constantly reminds the listeners about the 70s and the classic "rock n roll" lifestyle".
Tommy is voiced by Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose. Smith's history could be a jab at Rose himself. Like Rose, Smith's music career has dried up (Crystal Ship is without him, Guns N' Roses is dead). Also, his former bandmates are much more successful (Rose's former bandmates have moved on with Velvet Revolver and have reached further success than Rose). And like Rose, Smith is reduced to a much less glamorous job, being a DJ (and Rose is reduced to voicing a DJ in a videogame) Whether or not these are intentional or a coincidence is unknown, but its likely Rose hasn't made the connection, as he is notorious for requiring everything to suit him and would most likely quit if he felt he was being mocked.
Tommy and Sage, who is the host of alternative rock station Radio X, appear to hold grudges against each other, presumably for dislike of the other's musical preferences. On air, Smith tells her to "get over it!" during the intro to Tom Petty's "Runnin' Down a Dream", which is ironic because Sage states on Radio X that she "slept with this guy once" before Guns N' Roses' hit "Welcome to the Jungle" (which Rose was credited to creating) commences.

Thomas Joseph Smith (September 27, 1886 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada - August 1, 1966) was a Canadian professional ice hockey forward, who played from 1905 until 1920 for 16 teams in his career. He was a member of two Stanley Cup-winning teams, the Ottawa Silver Seven of 1906 and the Quebec Bulldogs of 1913. His two brothers Alf Smith and Harry Smith also played ice hockey.
Smith first played senior-level hockey when the sport was amateur. Smith first played senior for the Ottawa Emmetts from 1903 until 1905. He moved to the Ottawa Victorias of the Federal Amateur Hockey League (FAHL) in 1905-06 and also played for the Stanley Cup champion Ottawa Hockey Club, aka the "Silver Seven" that year. He moved to Pittsburgh to become a professional with the Pittsburgh Pros in 1906, playing three seasons in Pittsburgh before returning to Canada with the Brantford Indians of the Ontario Professional Hockey League (OPHL) where he played two seasons. In 1910-11 he moved over to Galt of the OPHL helping Galt win the OPHL championship. Smith, along with most of the Galt team bolted to Moncton Victorias the following season, helping Moncton win the Maritime championship. The Galt and Moncton teams Smith played for played consecutive Stanley Cup challenges, Galt against Ottawa in 1911 and Moncton against Quebec in 1912, both times unsuccessfully. Smith then joined the Quebec Bulldogs after the challenge, and played in five seasons for the Bulldogs until 1920. During the 1910s, he also played for the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Shamrocks in the National Hockey Association (NHA). While with the Canadiens, he played in the 1917 Stanley Cup Finals against Seattle.
After the 1913–14 season in Quebec, he was traded (twice) to Toronto Shamrocks. This caused a dispute with the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. At that time, the NHA and PCHA had an agreement whereby the PCHA teams could draft one player from 3 of the 6 teams of the NHA. He was traded away from Quebec, which was eligible to lose a player. He started play for Shamrocks, though he had been drafted by Victoria of the PCHA. It was found that the initial trade was not allowed, and Quebec re-traded him to Toronto during the season, disregarding the PCHA efforts to get him. After the 1914–15 season, he was traded back to Quebec, avoiding the PCHA draft again.
While skating for the Ottawa Vics in 1906, Smith led the FAHL with 12 goals (including eight goals in a game against Brockville on February 23, 1906). In future years, he was the leading goal-scorer in the OPHL (1908–09) and the NHA (1910–11, 1913–14, 1914–15).
