Smile was formed in 1968 and consisted of three members - lead singer and bass player Tim Staffell, guitarist Brian May, and drummer Roger Taylor.

Staffell and May met in 1964 and, together with several mutual friends, formed a band that they would call “1984”. 1984, in May’s words, was “purely an amateur band, formed at school, although perhaps at the end we once got fifteen quid or something. We never really played anything significant in the way of original material”. (Brian May, The Guitar Greats, 1983).

Staffell would later go on to be the vocalist for progressive rock group, Morgan, fronted by future Queen and Mott the Hoople keyboardist Morgan Fisher. Lasting from 1971-1973, the band recorded two albums, with the first album's eponymous track "Nova Solis", featuring Smile's songs "Earth" and "April Lady". « hide
