Pete's early Tornadoe years
As the face and lead vocalist of the "Cowboy for a Night" music video

The sudden passing of longtime drummer/vocalist Peter O'Reilly in April was a huge and unexpected loss. Pete, as he was fondly known, joined the Tornadoes in 1990. From that very moment, Pete's dynamic contribution and energy ignited the band with a new spark that led to two decades of new music, packed venues, recordings, video clips and global hits.  Peter O'Reilly, a most extraordinary person and just a nice guy, will be sadly missed but always remembered.  RIP Pete and thanks for the laughs and great times.
