Peter Steele

If this were word association, and someone said Peter’s name, my immediate response would be “one of a kind.”

I had the experience of working with him on many occasions, and can honestly say, without hesitation, he drove me up a wall. But, to be driven crazy by Peter was to love him.

I know you’re in a better place, old friend. Your legacy and music will live on forever.

    I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t too big a fan of Type O Negative. Not because I didn’t like them, but at the time I just was never in the mood to listen to them (I was more into goth rock/metal in my teens). Kind of sucks that I now get into them and Mr. Steele passes. His voice was amazing.

    I remember melting at the site of him when he came on as a guest on Jerry Springer. The man was gorgeous.

    His impact on the metal community is quite obvious. Mr. Steele and his band were/are clearly influential to the metal bands of today.

    Rest in peace.

    Carla wasn’t being insulting. She’s not that type. I think that quote was in their liner notes for October Rust or Bloody Kisses.

    I’m going to head over to Youtube now to see Peter on Springer. I heard about it but never had the chance to check it out.

    I figured as much, the message was pretty cryptic. Haha. Like I said I’m not the biggest Type O Negative fan.

    Looking back on that Springer episode and at a recent interview, you can see how drugs can wreck havoc on someone physically. His personality seemed to stay the same. I think the number of interviews I’ve watched of him and the band exceeds the number of songs I’ve listened to. Ha!
