With all due respect Sebastian, you're wrong.
I did get into the oils because of their music, the big picture, including
Peter's voice but far more to do with their music.

Would the Oils be known today without Peter?
Maybe not, but it has far less to do with his voice than it does his
striking presence and no bull, no compromise attitude.

Who the hell are you to decide why people got into the Oils in the first
