Peter John Wood (9 April 1950 1993)[1] was an English musician, a Keyboardist born in Middlesex, England. In his early years he lived with his parents in Hythe Field Avenue, Egham, Surrey. He was a member of Quiver, latterly "Sutherland Brothers & Quiver", and Natural Gas, before he began to work closely with Al Stewart, Roger Waters, as well as Cyndi Lauper, Jonathan Kelly, Tommy Shaw and Bob Dylan.

Wood is the co-writer of the 1976 Al Stewart single "Year of the Cat".

He was one of the original members of the "surrogate band",[2] who featured in Pink Floyd's The Wall live shows in 1980 and 1981,[3] and can be heard on the live album Is There Anybody Out There? The Wall Live 198081.[2]

He played keyboards on Joan Armatrading's breakthrough album Joan Armatrading in 1976.

Wood died in December 1993 at the age of 43. There have been conflicting reports on the cause of his death, ranging from suicide to slipping on his kitchen floor and cracking his head open.[4]
