Too much fun with Kirchen

Bill Kirchen gave a masters class in music history at Molly Malone’s in Covington Tuesday night. The difference between his presentation and a college lecture was the fact that he was thoroughly entertaining as well as enlightening.

Kirchen, the “Titan of the Telecaster,” is in his mid 60s but retains the impish gleam that he must have had at Ann Arbor (Mich.) High School where he went to class with Iggy Pop. He plays with such joy that it’s immediately obvious why his band is called Too Much Fun.

Tune in tonight for a Studio 89 finale with the legendary Bill Kirchen

The "Titan of the Telecaster", Bill Kirchen.

Bill Kirchen is one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock 'n' roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk.

He performs live on the air tonight at 7pm for the season finale of Studio 89.  Tell a friend and tune in!
