Fats Domino on rare occasions teamed up with other Rock Hall of Famers. Two are notable. Performing on a 1971 local program on WDCA in Washington DC, Fats and the folk-rock band The Byrds appeared together on Turn-On, Barry Richards Rock and Soul.

Chris Hillman was a true country rock pioneer from his days playing bluegrass mandolin in Southern California to his years with the original Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, the Souther/Hillman/Furay Band, McGuinn, Hillman and Clark and the Desert Rose Band.  "Bidin' My Time" is both a summary and artistic look ahead.  The late Tom Petty produced it.
