Midnight Oil

Looking at Bear's site made me think of Bones so I went over to check out his site for any news.  It looks like it has been revamped since I last looked at it.  He's added a short bit and discography since I viewed it last.

Adrian, i also enjoys reading Bears website as it provided something of a missing link (for me anyway) as to the original works of Midnight Oil.
I am currently reading Peter's memoirs & i am also enjoying that as well.

Regards, BJ.

Thanks so much for this link Simon.  Bear's early Oils photos and anecdotes are priceless.  I don't know when Bear put this up but Dodson quotes some of this in his book (and I thought he mentioned in that book somewhere about Bear having an unpublished autobiography of sorts).

I'll be honest, from an Oils perspective, specifically the early years, this is a much more satisfy read than Pete's rather disappointing tome (of which I've stalled halfway through..).
