With Special Guest: Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun

Artist, musician and pioneering band leader Commander Cody helped invent a whole new style of music during the early 1970’s, a period regarded as the height of rock innovation.  Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen were one of the original groups to fuse divergent strains of American roots music – stripped down basic rock and roll, rhythm and blues, jazz, bob, country, western swing and rockabilly – and create an innovative, yet familiar and convincing sound. 

Justly famous for his indelible Telecaster sound on “Hot Rod Lincoln,” his 1972 Top 10 hit with Commander Cody, Kirchen has been everywhere since he first plugged in during the mid-’60s: he was a founding member of the legendary Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, he’s released eight critically acclaimed solo albums, he’s toured internationally with Nick Lowe and has performed with the likes of Doug Sahm, Gene Vincent, Elvis Costello, Dan Hicks, Emmylou Harris and Link Wray. Each step of the way, he’s made a deep impression with his singular six-string virtuosity. As the Washington Post’s Mike Joyce put it, “The folks who make Fender Telecasters ought to stop what they’re doing and cut Bill Kirchen a fat check.”
