HE TITAN OF THE TELECASTER with Austin de Lone, Buffalo Bruce Barlow, Paul Revelli, Peter Siegel

About this event

Bill Kirchen co-founded the original “Americana” band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen, and his trademark Telecaster licks drove their hit “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top 10 in 1972. We are going to have Too Much Fun tonight. How about these for some Kudos on THE TITAN OF THE TELECASTER:

Johnny Cash on Bill - "I think he's great.”

Nick Lowe on Bill - "A devastating culmination of the elegant and the funky, a really sensational musician with enormous depth.”

Pop Matters on Bill - "He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music, and to hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on one’s musical memory.”

No Depression on Bill - "You might call [Hot Rod Lincoln] the Triumph of the Telecaster. Then again, you might say that about Kirchen's whole career."
