TMP158 Bill Kirchen: Hammer of the Honky Tonk Gods

The Commander Cody cofounder burst into the Top 10 playing the hot guitar on “Hot Rod Lincoln.” Grammy nominations and collaborations with Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, and Gene Vincent followed in a celebrated career spanning over 50 years. As a teenager he hitchhiked to see Dylan debut “Mr. Tambourine Man” at the ’64 Newport Folk Festival, then returned in ’65 to witness Bob “go electric.” At Ann Arbor High he played the talent show opposite classmate Jim Osterberg (Iggy Pop). Bill is a master of his craft and one of the most decent guys you could ever meet. Quite a contrast to the Troubled Men. Topics include a graduation, fears, forced jury duty, vaccine incentives, the folk scare, the Ark, going to California, Jerry Garcia, liquid LSD, a hit record, John Sinclair, early Stooges gigs, the Moonlighters, the D.C. scene, Too Much Fun, a Jim Jarmusch guitar, the Sons of Lee Marvin, moving to Austin, the Ameripolitan Awards show, Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, CSNY, band friendships, livestreams, and much more.
