I heard about Bobby a couple of days ago. I’ve known him through my brother Frank Eimer since I was a kid and am sorry to hear this tragedy. I also played bass so he and I never performed together, but did play at a lot of jam sessions, though it’s been a long time. To all his friends, fans and family, he had a lot of wonderful times and now is in the hall of fame.

Every time we lose someone of the calibur of Bobby Stiles we are diminished. I met Bobby back in the 70’s. I found him to be very tolerent of the young guns who were at that time attempting to rise in the local ranks. I recall that, back then, I felt honored to be fortunate enough to actually not only to meet but to have a chance to get to know an accomplished fellow musician. Especially one that I had looked up to when I was just entering the local arena. He was a solid musician. A very cool person. He made an impact here that is not forgotten. Rock on Bobby. That’s one hell of a jam session going on.

On Saturday June 13,2009 I had a graduation party for my Grandson. Along with others In attendance were Bruce Snoap, Phil Roberts, George Campbell & myself Jim Lewis. We all talked about Bobby Stiles with fond memories as Bobby played with Us,The Kingtones back in the early 80’s. Phil said Bobby was such a nice fit and an Honor to play with as Bobby added an atmosphere of Cool to the Band. We recalled Bobby singing Sam The Sham & The Pharaohs hit Woolly Bully as Bobby had a resemblance to Sam. He did a wonderful job on that song and for Us. We all hated to See Bobby leave but He went to play more nights a week at that time with his Friend and former band mate Frank Eimer. Bobby was a great guy and a pleasure to share the stage with. We will Miss Him deeply! So on behalf of The Kingtones Keep Rockin’ & God Bless Ya Bobby!
