Wow, what sad news.

Just did the DSSG Show in Gulfport with Ora in Nov. What great character. So full of energy and had too many stories to hear in one weekend.
Great gentleman...
Condolences to his family and friends..

Son, we live in a world with walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with steel guitars. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg?

Ora was the first steel player I ever hired when I was starting out my first band back in the early '70's. We were playing and at the end of the first set he started packing up his guitar, and I asked him what was going on. He told me that the drummer had too heavy a foot and he couldn't play with him. I persuaded him to stay and finish the gig. We became friends and I can say he had his own mind about music. Later, when I began playing steel, I spent many hours with him in his living room swapping stories, trying out amps, and swapping licks as well. He was always looking for that perfect sound that he wanted and usually had several amplifiers he was trying out. He built his own guitar and at one time had Roy Thomas build him a pedalmaster with the A6 tuning that he loved. Eventually he went back to his original homemade pedal steel that really identified his sound. Rest in peace Ora. Your friends miss you.
