Reports That Type O Negative Frontman Pete Steele Has Died
Reports have surfaced stating that Pete Steele, frontman for Brooklyn-based metal band Type O Negative, died on the evening of April 14, 2010 from heart failure.

Rumors of Steele’s death first arose late Wednesday night on Facebook from posts by friends of the musician’s family who had been notified. Just before midnight, Fused TV VJ Juliya Chernetsky, aka Mistress Juliya, posted to her Twitter account confirming that the 48-year-old musician had died. “He passed of heart failure today. Just spoke to Kenny,” Chernetsky wrote, presumably referring to Steele’s Type O bandmate guitarist Kenny Hickey.

As of 2AM EST, no other information has surfaced and no official statements released. We’ll update this story as soon as more details are available.

Steele was born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn, NY. While working as a sanitation worker for the New York City Department of Sanitation in the 1980s — a job he always said he loved — Steele fronted thrash pioneers Carnivore, known for throwing raw meat into the crowd during their live shows. In 1990, Steele formed Type O Negative, which had a more gothic-metal look and sound. Steele played bass and was the lead vocalist for the band, as well as its main composer. The band eventually rose to fame and heightened popularity with their videos for ode to goth chicks “Black No. 1″ and “Christian Woman,” and had continued to record and perform up until a few years ago.

During the band’s time in the spotlight, the musician appeared on the cover of Playgirl and posed fully nude for the magazine. Steele was known to suffer from depression and had had issues with substance abuse. In 2005, his Carnivore bandmate Keith Alexander was killed in a bike accident in Brooklyn.

**Update**

The website for rock radio station KNAC.com is reporting that they have been able to confirm “according to a source from within the band” that Peter Steele has indeed passed away from heart failure at age 48. They add that the singer was apparently Ill for a few days prior to his death.

this from another site;

Despite a hoax in 2005, which saw it reported that Steele had died from a series of different causes, it is thought that this time the tragic news is legitimate, and despite no official statement as yet, the sources are extremely credible.

Oh no!...What a terrible loss!...:(
One of my all time most fav. bands! :(
Now I feel bad for being so pissed off the last time I saw them.
I got irritated because they were late...very late, and when they did finally come on stage, after 2 songs, Peter just left the stage. 10 minutes go by, and then he comes back, and says something about drinking too much the night before...said he had to sit for the rest of the show.
They did finish, but it wasn't like some of their other shows I've been to...not nearly as good.
Sad to think that was the last time I'll ever get to see them again... :(
Now I'm wondering if maybe he was lying about it being the alcohol..maybe it was his heart starting to give him problems then ( 2007), he just didn't know it.. :(
What a sad , sad day...no more new Type-O to listen to when I create...

if youre into metal music in any way shape or form, you cannot fail to come across Type O Neg. they were an awesome band, way ahead of their time some would say... Pete Steele WAS Type O.

i dont understand why people click on threads like this if it isnt someone you've heard of???

'Bloody Kisses' & 'October Rust' are two albums that shaped my mind and musical taste in my teens. They'll make alot of spins in my stereo today...

Hell, even my first concert ever was Type O (dec '96), which was by far the best gig I ever attended.

Thanks for the good times, brother.
