Hi Eric:

When you performed Never Gonna Fall in Love Again on the Midnight Special in 1976 who played back up for you???

I watched it recently and it flashes to the faces of four members...I understand a back up group called "Magic" I think backed you on All By Myself??? Is it the same band???

Thanx in advance :)

The members of Magic backed Eric on that appearance (having been renamed The Eric Carmen Band) and one of the two drummers (the impressive blonde-haired lad) is Michael McBride, who played on the Raspberries "Starting Over" album (who also backed Eric in the bands Cyrus Erie and The Quick). McBride was a neat addition to the guys in Magic, who all played on Eric's first Arista solo album in 1975 (at the time, I considered it *almost* a Raspberries album since half the band was on it).
