Pete Steele RIP — Are your Type O Negative Memories Positive?

Posted By on Fri, Apr 16, 2010 at 1:44 PM


Cleveland-based Classic Metal Show Radio Network (CMS) radio network is paying tribute today to Type O Negative and frontman Peter Steele, who passed away on Wednesday from a sudden heart failure. The tribute runs through 6 p.m.

Type O Neg is one of the bands that kept metal alive during the waning days of the ‘90s. Their 1995 album Bloody Kisses was the first gold platter for metal foundry Roadrunner Records. The untimely death of the metal icon, who was 48, rocked the metal world and provoked an outpouring of praise. Bands all over the steel spectrum, from Hatebreed to Lacuna Coil, have been paying tribute.

The band’s final U.S. tour played House of Blues on October 20 last year. What are your memories of Type O Negative? Did you ever meet Steele? Where did you first hear the band? Did you give in to curiosity and check out his Playgirl spread? Did you believe that 6’7” Steele had two girlfriends?

Classic-rock fans, check out the band's reverent cover Neil Young’s “Cinnamon Girl.”

RIP, Pete. — D.X. Ferris
