Bill Kirchen

location The Waiting Room

Via Sunday Roadhouse:

Grammy-nominated guitarist Bill Kirchen co-founded the legendary Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen band who brought cowboys, hippies and everyone else together around Country Rock, Honky Tonk and Western Swing eventually scoring a national Top-Ten hit in 1972 with “Hot-Rod Lincoln”. He can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, and Elvis Costello. All with the same guitar!

His live shows are full of wit and humor. Named “Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player magazine, his live version of “Hot Rod Lincoln” is jaw-dropping. If you know a guitar player, it is your solemn duty to bring him or her to see and hear the man who’s spent over 40 years writing, touring and twanging on the favored Fender Telecaster – the amazing Bill Kirchen. Hope to see you there!
