Well said Cheryl. I was lucky enough to see the Oils in the Sydney area several times in 2017, as well as once in New York. It was magic sharing and feeling the buzz of more Oils gigs; despite or most probably because of us all being that little bit older. This list has been very good to me over the years; my regret is being too much in the background.
it’s great that so many fans have united and re-united via the PW FB page, but for lurkers i.e. Introverts like me, i’ll definitely remain in the shadows.
All the best to you all -Stu

I had the pleasure of running this site for a few years, starting before Wave Aid. Sign-up was required to weed out any spam, as well as to give newbies a place to get acquainted, but in the spirit of the Oils way of doing things - all were welcome.
The thing that bothered me was how some shows we're considered "elite", therefore being almost impossible to get by most. Bootlegs are bootlegs - I know directly from the band that they weren't thrilled about the trading of ANY of them. The direction I got was that under no circumstances would trading of demos or cash for shows be tolerated. I did everything to enforce these wishes, and I never got pushback from anyone about it.
I went to a few shows in the Northeast US last year and caught up with some long, lost friends and met some of you that I got to know on this list. The experience of spending the afternoons with everyone and enjoying the shows together will last a lifetime.
FB PW is a bit too loud for me, and has the tendency to be about one or two enthusiastic fans, instead of our beloved Oils, but we still have this little haven, thanks to those who keep it alive. I like to think if it as the adults' table - we're a bit older, a bit wiser, maybe a bit more tired, but it sure feels good to sit here with the family I've been with for so many years and share stories about the best band on the planet 😊
