Member of Smile with Brian May and Roger Taylor, which eventually became Queen after his departure and Freddy Mercury and John Deacon's arrivals. He went on to become a model maker, designer, animator, and commercials director.
He performed with the Railroaders while a student at Hampton Grammar School in the 1960s; he also co-founded the blues-rock band, 1984, which was a support act for Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd. They broke up in 1968.
Staffell was born in Isleworth, London, England. He attended Hampton Grammar School and was the singer in a band called the Railroaders when in 1964 he attended a concert where he met fellow Hampton pupil Brian May. They then put together a blues-rock band called '1984' with John Garnham (guitar), Dave Dilloway (bass), John Sanger (keyboards) and Richard Thompson (drums). In 1965, Staffell began a graphics and drawing course at Ealing Art College where he became friends with Freddie Mercury, whilst May enrolled at Imperial College, London. 1984 were a support act for Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd and Staffell left it in 1968 not long after May left.
In 2001, Staffell returned to the music industry, co-forming with long-time collaborator Richard Lightman a new blues-funk band called aMIGO, drawing inspiration from folk, Latin and rock. In 2003 they released one eponymous album, with re-recorded versions of the old Smile tunes "Earth" and "Doin' Alright", featuring his former bandmate Brian May on guitars and vocals. The album was self released and available on CD-R for a limited release run (less than 300 copies) and later released via iTunes.
In April 2018, Staffell was invited to record his part of the song "Doin' Alright" alongside the other Smile members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, for the upcoming soundtrack to the movie Bohemian Rhapsody, which tells the life story of Freddie Mercury. The song was credited to Smile, and titled "Doing All Right ... Revisited". The music score was released in 19 October 2018, and the movie premiere was three days later. The soundtrack debuted on the UK albums chart at number 5 on 26 October 2018.
The second Tim Staffell album Two Late was released on digital platforms on 26 October 2018, and it will be followed with physical limited release in the middle of November. Staffell confirmed that he is already working on his third solo album, with title Zero Margin. In July 2019, 'aMIGO’ was re-released (with a live studio version of the song 'Just Couldn't Say) as a Remastered Special Edition CD by MOSCODISC with new digipack sleeve
