Band Photo: Type O Negative (?)
MetalSucks.net writer Anso DF has published Part 1 of a week-long series that looks back at the life of Type O Negative / Carnivore frontman/bassist Peter Steele. MetalSucks reached out to a few of Peter’s family, friends, and Type O Negative bandmates, who generously shared their thoughts, remembrances, and regrets. You can read the entire article and series of interviews by heading over to this location. An excerpt from the article, commenting on Peter's untimely passing, reads as follows:
So we miss the guy. His departure was sudden and, typical of Peter, ironically timed: A long period of turmoil had come to an end, say his friends and family, and a sober, focussed Peter was days away from a return from seclusion in Pennsylvania to his native New York. A late 2009 string of Type O concerts — which turned out to be his final shows — had marked the best Pete performances in years. Further, the band had just signed a new record deal with Napalm Records and booked a Staten Island rehearsal studio to undertake writing a new album. Nearby, an apartment had been found for Peter, also minutes from two of his bandmates’ homes. He was coming back; he was going to write songs to tell us where he’d been. His death seemed so cruel. It was hard to process.
