Legendary honky-tonk guitar man Bill Kirchen has just joined the line-up for Mountain Stage’s Sunday, June 20. This living legend of guitar is the distinctive guitar tone behind the early days of Commander Cody, including its signature hit “Hot Rod Lincoln.”
Kirchen is prepared to release Word to the Wise on May 25, which features cameos by some big names, including piano by Commander Cody, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Dan Hicks and Maria Muldaur.
The man known as “The Titan of the Telecaster” habitually gives legendary performances, so I’m sure his short visit with us will be no different. If you need any proof, just type his name at YouTube and let the fireworks begin.
Here’s the title track from his last CD Hammer of the Honky Tonk Gods.
