Original Byrds Members Reunite on Chris Hillman’s New Solo Album

Original Byrds members David Crosby, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman haven’t performed together since the group reunited at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction in 1991. And while there’s no sign of a Byrds reunion any time soon, the three did collaborate on Hillman’s forthcoming solo album, due out next month.

Bidin’ My Time is Hillman’s first new solo album in 12 years. It features several re-imagined Byrds tunes including”Bells of Rhymney,” with guest vocals by David Crosby, “She Don’t Care About Time” and “Old John Robertson” (re-titled as “New Old John Robertson”).

The album also includes a cover of Tom Petty‘s “Wildflowers” – not a surprising choice since Petty produced the album. Heartbreakers Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell and Steve Ferrone also make appearances on the album.

Hillman will embark on a North American tour this fall in support of the release.

Bidin’ My Time is due out September 22 and is available for pre-order now on
