Topic: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Bill Kirchen is one of the founders of "Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen. Here he is performing "Hot Rod Lincoln" a favorite of mine and our friend, the late Dino48. But I suspect only a few of you may have heard it played this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsLdufJePz0

EDIT: For a guy who was an English major, I sure made a lot of mistakes up there! I think I got 'em all this time.
And Jim, I didn't even notice the way he said "Road" (Rod) at the beginning there. I guess I was too busy waiting for that famous riff which begins the song. smile

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Bill he is good and funny. He plays riffs as good as any I have  heard at any age.

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Very entertaining, Bill ... and I love that sweet clean tone he gets from his Telecaster.

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

LOL Bill

I thought you spelled it Road  instead of Rod b/c of the way he said it at the beginning of the song.

He really was superb.

{b]Jim{/b],

I'd be willing to bet that Lincoln would leave a lot of evidence of having travelled over that "Road"..

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

The dude is a telemaster!  He sure knew how to make that "tele" talk.  The flat body of a telecaster with the ashtray kept me from owning one, now I have to reconsider. Thanks for sharing Bill - brings back great memories of Dino.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Well, bluejeep, now you're gonna have to show me or explain what you mean by "the flat body...... with the ashtray". I looked really close at Bill Kirchen's Tele, but didn't see an ashtray attached, so if you wouldn't mind?

Thanks

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Bill it is a technique on Telecasters and not a real ash tray for smokers. I  apologize if you were just kidding.

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Bill ... the "ashtray" was a nickname for the metal box where the bridge and bridge pickup are located. Some models had a snap on metal cover over this, which often did get used for an ashtray.

Re: "Hot Rod Lincoln"

Thanks, you two! And no Classical Guitar, my friend I wasn't kidding. There are times when I don't think things through (see recent posts) these days and tend to take things literally. But don't worry! I don't go looking for a top hat when I set up my drums. (That was a joke smile )!  Thanks for the visual as well. That helped a lot. I'm glad I have such understanding friends, I really am.

Your Friend
