Rest in Peace Paul O'Neill (Savatage, Trans Siberian Orchestra)

This came out of nowhere somewhat, although for some reason I thought I heard or read an interview a few years back about him having an illness. No specifics, but I wonder if it may be cancer (which seems to be the most common anyway).

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.

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.
