Great article about a musician I’ll be playing tomorrow night…

I just read this thoroughly amusing semi-bio of Hasil Adkins, and felt it needed to be shared with the world.

Billy Miller relates war stories of touring with Adkins when he was on parole for a weapons violation involving a typical backwoods shoot-out over a girl in which the offending parties were too drunk to hit each other with sawed-off shotguns. The very first piece of Norton Records stationery ever issued was a note pleading with a judge in West Virginia to allow Adkins to keep working and practicing. The judge fired back a note that read, “Oh, Hasil don’t need no practice.”

Great stories about a great dude I never heard of ’till today.
