I...took the idea of the shuffle a song that Fats Domino did called "The Fat Man" that had a kind of driving shuffle beat that I used to play on the piano, and I just started kind of singing along with it. Then I showed it to Paich and he helped me fill it out. It ended up being "Lido Shuffle"."Members of the backup band on "Lido Shuffle" include David Paich, Jeff Porcaro and David Hungate who later formed Toto.
