We are very sorry to hear that Peter Steele, charismatic frontman for Type O Negative, has died of suspected heart failure. Our sympathies go out to Steele’s family, drummer Johnny Kelly and his bandmates. Singer/songwriter/bassist Steele and the Brooklyn-based goth metal outfit found international fame with Type O Negative’s Bloody Kisses, an album that defined the band’s sound and contained the hits ‘Christian Woman’ and ‘Black No. 1’. He was 48.
