Raising Hell In Heaven

It's been a year since Okie Adams passed on, and it's still hard to resolve the loss of such a charitable, wise and hilarious man. The night we first met Okie, my friends Mike, Ross and I, sat in his living room, in the few available spaces not covered in boxes (of an unsorted living), and watched as he performed a divining ritual with hand made instruments, locating a stream deep below the house. He then introduced us to his incredible hand made Banjo's, and a condensed (and imbelished) narrative of his life...part of which involved being the only man that could truely satisfy Rita Hayworth!...they just don't make them like Okie Adams anymore.x
