Really stinks. Type O is the epitome of nostalgia for my rebellion era. I hate knowing no new music will be made from him.

EDIT: That being said listen to Seventh Void, a band with two of Type O's members. They sound like old school Soundgarden.

I just realized that there have only been (in the last 20 years) a handful of deaths with this big on an impact on the musical community: Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Lain Staley (Alice in Chains), Dimebag (Pantera), Chuck Schuldiner (Death), and Euronymous (Mayhem). The sad part about that, I don't expect more than 2 or 3 people on these boards to know who the last 2 are, but those who do will agree without a second thought that they were just as influential in their genres as Peter was to the goth scene.

chuck like created death metal his twisted mind of making five guitars go off on souls to make a harmony was insainly tech music stle and Eouronymous is like ann all father to the black metal scene, if he hadnt been killed he would be much better know than varg or ishan.

that said peter steele was a bad ass and a reasonably nice guy , i met him in SF twice after shows once as a minor and once as an adult both times he treated be very nicely for a fan thats all stinky and sweaty and such...i was hammered both times too and he was joking about it both times that he could drink my body weight or some crap.....for thoose that down know peter steele was friggen massive, like hugely tall and not fat reasonalby built man. kinda intemidating.

Yeah I had front row tickets and back stage passes to one of Type O's shows. My neck hurt from looking straight up the whole time, Steele was 6'7" tall, when I met him back stage he was sitting on the floor leaning against a couch, smoking a joint and said "man I am so sick of this shit." Apparently the venue still hadn't laid out food for him.

No.

Also, the dude was Fucking Ripped. There is no way to say that with lowercase letters. I would be cold cash that the dude weighed close to 300 pounds of solid muscle (which, even given that he was 6'8" is still fucking huge).

Speaking of, I'd hate to have had to make a coffin big enough to fit Pete in.

I was sad as well to hear about this. I got screwed out of getting to see him live twice, but I enjoyed his music.
