    Seriously, I challenge you to Google image search "Peter Steele" and not come up with a picture of his dick, even with Google Safe-search ON you will fail.

    Anyway, R.I.P Indeed, I quite liked Type O :(

    We'll miss you, Peter.
    Type O Negative has greatly influenced Andrew and me in many ways, and I'm bummed that we'll never hear that luscious voice ever sing any new songs.

    I'm so sad that we never had a chance to meet you in person.
    Fuck April. RIP

    Born and raised in Brooklyn my freind :)

    Ya the guys were older, they were the generation before us playing L'amour, Mothers, Glass Apple, Roxy places like that. The band I was in at the time was NYC hardcore kinda thing with some thrash tendencies thrown in for good measure.

    We did a lot of shows with Biohazard, Type O, VOD, and the other bands in the area. Through mutual friends we all got to know one another. Would up being that I lived 2 blocks from Pete and didn't even realize it. Till 2 or 3 years after we met. This was right around the time Bloody Kisses hit real big.

    So as the years went on we all kinda kept in touch via phone, email, myspace whatever.

    When i heard the news this morning I called a friend to find out what was going on and he happened to be with Kenny. Kenny got on the phone and we just cried together for about 10 minutes.

    Really sucks man

    this article puts tons of perspective on it.

    The rock star dream apparently faded long ago for Pete Steele.

    "I just wanted to have enough money to have a house, wife, maybe four kids. I'm not at that place right now and I really don't see things changing very much," said Steele, the hulking, vampiric frontman for Brooklyn goth metallers Type O Negative.

    "That's the main problem, is what am I doing here? I'm 41 years old, and rock is for youth."

    While many bands spend interviews gushing about their latest albums, praising their bandmates as their best pals or thanking their lucky stars to be playing music for a living, Steele is brutally disenchanted and blatantly depressed. A former New York City Parks Department worker, he said he rues the day he gave up the salaried job to front the brooding metal outfit.

    Now 10 years and five albums into the Type O experiment, he still lives in the same basement apartment, has no girlfriend and describes his life as one of disappointment and frustration. He claims he stays in the band only because of contracts and because he made a promise to the rest of the group: keyboardist Josh Silver, guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly.

    "I do it because I made a commitment to my so-called friends in this band that we would see this through to the end. I didn't realize it would be a life sentence," he deadpanned.

    Formed in the bowels of Brooklyn's early 1990s goth scene, the group slithered out of the shadows and made its mark on the black- metal underground with 1993's "Bloody Kisses," a spine-tingling offering that went platinum. The group, which headlines the Worcester Palladium tonight, followed up with 1996's "October Rust" and 1999's "World Coming Down," neither of which lived up to "Bloody Kisses" commercially or in the eyes of fans.

    Their latest, however, the aptly titled "Life Is Killing Me," is an instant classic, bursting with hypnotic, melodic hard rock, tongue-in-cheek potty-mouth speed punk and their signature dead-to- the-world metal. Brimming with bleakness and unflinching honesty, the album is burning up college radio and metal charts, but Steele isn't impressed.

    "I wouldn't buy it," he barked.

    While some songs, such as the mind-numbing "Anesthesia" and the crushing title track, portray Steele as a tortured intellectual on the brink of suicide, others, like the homophobic "I Like Goils," use black humor as a weapon. Musically, the disc sounds like Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath unleashed at an Irish wake. Lyrically, shrinks could write volumes analyzing the subject matter. Fresh off a miserable, if slightly profitable, European tour, Steele is candidly unexcited about heading out in a bus with his three brethren for a U.S. tour.

    "It's like four people being married and all of them having their period all the time," he said of the band. "There's an old saying about husbands and wives getting on each other's nerves, like fighting about stupid things, like leaving the cap off the toothpaste. Well, let's just say the cap is always off the toothpaste."

    Beyond the bus, he said, he detests playing the same songs every night: "I can't imagine how Ozzy (Osbourne) does it. I mean, how many times has he had to play `Paranoid'?

    "I really hate being onstage," he continued. "It's usually a balmy 130 degrees onstage and I've got these french fry lights burning on my back. I don't like traveling. I just don't get anything out of it."

    Fed up and angry? Yes. Giving up? Never. In fact, there's a clear, revenge-driven method to Steele's madness.

    "I feel like I've been disillusioned," he explained matter-of- factly. "But it's no one's fault but mine. No one made me do this. Now my goal is to complain, annoy and irritate everyone around me until I get out of this band, die or someone kills me. My motivation is aggravation."

    Yep this is the real Pete, He had way more fun in Carnivore. We had coversations regarding all of this MANY MANY times. He had his pick of any woman int he litter but that wasn't him. just an average guy who was turned into an icon by the fans / media.

    :(

    Peter really was a barmy mofo. He seemed to be getting better in that respect in the past few years. Too little too late i suppose. :( FREE AT LAST. Indeed sir.

    I have to admit, the whole "finding god" thing irked me a bit. But I suppose when you become that disillusioned with the world and your situation you'll turn to different things to get out of that situation.

    Seems like the term "rest in peace" is definitely appropriate with Steele. Glad I got to see Type O at Wacken 3 years ago.

    Pete was always a child of God. He never was into the whole "satan, wicca, pagan" thing everyone claimed. Hell go back and look at the photos he is almost ALWAYS wearing a crucifix. It was part of the charade
