Earlier today it was confirmed that Peter Steele, the frontman of the bands Type O Negative and Carnivore, had passed away at the age of 48 from a heart failure. Many fans of the band have been paying their respects today, among them include many of Steele's peers. You can read what some of them have to say about the man below.
"Peter Steele was one of my all-time favourite musicians ever! I've only met him once briefly and he was just the nicest guy! Carnivore's 'Retalliation' and all Type O Negative albums have been a huge influence on my creativity. This is a black day for music! Rest in peace, Peter." - Mille Petrozza, Kreator
"Peter Steele was one of the nicest guys in music, he was always kind to me through the years. I toured many times with Type O and was always taken care of! Big guy with a huge heart. My heart goes out to his band, his family, and his many friends around the world... We have all lost a LEGEND, a voice that will never be duplicated!" - Dez Fafara, DevilDriver
"I haven't heard such bad news in a long time. I am apalled, speechless. Silence is more respectful, in these circumstances, I know. But everyone who knows me knows that Peter and Type O were (and are) an IMMENSE influence in my musical taste and beside that Pete was a charismatic, intense, funny, fantastic person. I treasure the moments we spent together on this road and I know he's rockin' out both heaven and hell, right now. My deepest condolences to Johnny, Kenny , Josh and Peter's family. I will miss you brother, my influence and adorable giant. We'll meet again somewhere, someday." - Cristina Scabbia, Lacuna Coil
