This is quite sad, as he was a big part of Savatage and Trans Siberian Orchestra especially. The few times I saw both, I don't recall if he was with them.
None-the-less, he will definitely be missed. I guess he's jamming up in heaven with Criss Oliva.
Thanks for all the great music and everything you did for both 'Tage and TSO of course.
Rest in Peace Paul.
The entire Trans-Siberian Orchestra family, past and present, is heartbroken to share the devastating news that Paul O’Neill has passed away from chronic illness.
He was our friend and our leader -- a truly creative spirit and an altruistic soul. This is a profound and indescribable loss for us all.
We ask that you respect Paul’s family’s privacy now.
We will make additional announcements shortly.
