Hi my name is Kelly and I am Bob McBride's daughter.  I came across this website and seeing the forum on my father brought tears to my eyes as it was very sweet.  I would like to say hello and see if there is anyone out there that knew my father.  Any photos or memories that you'd like to share would be cherished.  With love, thank you. :-)

Hi Kelly,

 

Your father was a sweet guy, and a really good bass player! I had a lot of fun working with him in Cyrus Erie, and the opening track on my new release "The Essential Eric Carmen" ( on Sony, Legacy Recordings ) is "Get The Message", a Cyrus Erie track

 

that features your dad on bass, and your Uncle Mike on drums. 

 

I'm glad you found this site!

 

So sorry to hear about your father's passing.

Wow, thank you Eric for replying!  So sweet of you.  Yes, he had fond memories as well working with you too.  As did my uncle, Mike, who I talk to often.  Much love.  :-)

 

Sincerely and with much respect,

Kelly McBride

I thought that it was Bob McBride from the Canadian group Lighthouse ("One Fine Morning" & "Sunny Days") who passed away in 1999.  Matt

Hi Matt, no that is a different Bob McBride. :) My father, Bob, died in 2011 and was part of Cyrus Erie for a short time along with my uncle, Michael McBride.

Hi Kelly.  Sorry to hear about your dad's passing.  I do remember him and your uncle with Cyrus Erie.  What is your Uncle Mike up to these days?  Anything musical?

Hi Brian,

 

Yes I talk to my uncle Mike and will tell him about this site.  I am not sure if he is doing anything musical nowadays.   I will have to ask him.  He lives in Ohio with his wife, Becky. :-)

 

Anyways, take care.

 

Kelly

Michael McBride in 2016 is currently sound engineer for Stampede. That's your update for the day.B) Yes, I saw the old thread and someone wanted to know, so I dug it up.

I just found out this is not the same person. There's a Stampede Showband in Calgary, Alberta, and I doubt the lady's family member would shoot all the way up there from his home and wife to play hundred of miles from Ohio just for them.

A lot of people carry the same full name and are not related. One never knows who has your name. I found that out personally.
