Default Type-0 Frontman Peter Steele dead at 48

Sad news for me, as I'm a huge Type-0 Negative fan and Peter Steele is one of my favorite singers of all time. There's a good chance that his death is either directly or indirectly related to his past, and possible present, drug use...but no reports confirm that yet. RIP big guy...will be missing your music.

Report Are True: Type O Negative Singer Peter Steele Is Dead

Brooklyn-based metal band Type O Negative best know for their hits “Black No. 1″ and “Christian Woman,” have lost their bassist, lead singer. 48-year-old Pete Steele died on the evening of April 14, 2010 from heart failure. Reports have surfaced stating that Pete Steele Steele, born Petrus T. Ratajczyk had been ill for days leading up to his death. Steele has had issues with substance abuse, but at the time of this post drugs have not been tied to his death.
The Brooklyn native was an icon in his native New York. The massive singer was 6′ 7″ and built with black long hair, he was hard to miss on the streets of NYC. During Type O Negative’s height of popularity Pete Steele appeared on the cover of Playgirl and was featured in the magazine fully nude.
Steele had a baritone voice as big as his stature and as deep as his bass guitar. The is a huge loss for not only the NYC music community but for metal rock fans around the world. He will truly be missed.

Don't do anything by half. If you love someone, love them with all your soul. When you go to work, work your ass off. When you hate someone, hate them until it hurts.

I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it. We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and the soul.

Bloody Kisses is one of my favorites, too :( I saw it on the news and couldn't believe it. He and Type O Negative were great at the 2nd Ozzfest in '97 (that was also the last time I saw Pantera & Dimebag). Guess I need to dig out my copy of Playgirl featuring the STEELE *sniff sniff* RIP, Big Guy.
