An American singer and songwriter, best known for his 1964 U.S. Top Ten hit "Suspicion".
The song "Suspicion", which was released on the Crusader record label and which had previously been recorded by Elvis Presley, made it to number 3 in the U.S. and number 31 in the UK Singles Chart.
"Suspicion," with a vocal by Stafford that reminded many listeners of Presley, had the unusual distinction of being at #6 in the charts in the Unitedd States on 4 April 1964, just below the Beatles when they made history by holding down the entire top 5.
His version of "Suspicion" became a very popular version even
though Presley had recorded it earlier.
Stafford had writing success with songs such as - "Say" and
"Has anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose" and many more.
Stafford lived most of his life between Los Angeles and Amarillo, Texas, and died in Amarillo of liver failure.
