Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, he began playing the violin as a child and later took vocal lessons. His talents led him to stints as a featured performer with Carmen Cavallaro's band and later with Perry Como's supper club. He joined Welk in 1952 and until the maestro's retirement in 1982, Bob was their featured violinist, and an accomplished vocalist both with tender ballads, jazz favorites and also country music. He also was one of the show's comics as well, featured in many humorous novelty songs with fellow Welk stars such as Aladdin, Larry Hooper and Charlie Parlato.

He also led a revival of the Hotsy Totsy Boys, one of Lawrence's early bands, which were popular features on the show during the early 1970s. They featured Lido as lead vocalist and fiddler, Parlato on trumpet, Russ Klein on saxophone, Richard Maloof on tuba, Bob Havens on trombone, Neil Levang on ukulele and banjo, Bob Ralston on piano and Jack Imel playing the drums and spoons.

Lido died in 2000 from complications of a stroke.
