Floyd Chester Sneed is a Canadian drummer, best known for his work with the band Three Dog Night. Born in Calgary, Alberta, Sneed grew up in a musical family, and he became interested in drums at an early age. His first drum kit was a gift from his older sister Maxine, who at the time was married to the musician-actor Tommy Chong. He soon began performing in the Vancouver area as part of Chong's band, Little Daddy and the Bachelors. In 1966, Sneed formed his own band and moved to Los Angeles, California. In 1968, he met a trio of vocalists, who had a contract with Dunhill Records and were looking for backing musicians. Sneed joined their new band, Three Dog Night, which became a commercial success in the late 1960s and early to mid 1970s. Sneed sang backup on only one song with the band; he did the deep vocal on "Joy to the World", singing the lyric "I wanna tell you."
