RIP: Peter Steele





RIP: Peter SteeleWhen it came to living life on the edge, no one lived it to the fullest quite like Type O Negative's bassist/singer Peter Steele. It's with a heavy heart we announce that the music world has lost one of its most talented players.

Mistress Juliya of Fuse TV broke the news just a little while ago on her Twitter Account stating, "Peter Steele passed today. I loved my friend...our idol...my heart is with his band and family...", adding later that "he passed of heart failure". Peter Steele was born Petrus T. Ratajczyk on January 4th, 1962, in Brooklyn, New York. He was just 48 at the time of his passing. Gone way too soon.

Before Type O Negative Steele played for the metal group Fallout and the thrash band Carnivore. His musical contributions will no doubt be long remembered. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer Steele's friends, family, fans, and constituents our deepest condolences.

Rest in peace, Peter. Thanks for the gifts that you left behind.

One of the most unique voices, and band, out there.

I'd just like to point out that the last member who was direspectful in a thread like this was banned almost instantly. Why do you let DSIC go around insulting everyone. If any of these mods had any balls he'd be gone.

Had no idea who the guy was, but RIP.

DSIC is an asshole and always has been. Why is this surprising? Never liked the band but it was popular. Saw them open for a few bands a couple of times and didn't they do Ozzfest at least once?

Ah, man. So tragic. Always loved Type O's music and their wild sense of humor.

And fuck you, DSIC.

Sense of humor? With such clever song titles like "SMD"? Yeah, the world lost a talent.

I don't usually bite to you, DSIC, but did you know Pete personally or are you just calling him a douchebag because you personally don't care that "just another person" died?

I have had the displeasure of seeing Type-O several times and being around him. I don't think he was funny, I don't think his music was anything remotely resembling good. A lot of people die and I feel it's a loss...This would not be one of those times. Sorry I don't swing from his nuts and voice myself as such.

Good riddance.

He was a friend. So a hearty GO FUCK YOURSELF to you. Persist anymore and I will take appropriate action.

I was never a TYPE O fan, and was very open about that. But Pete was a hella funny guy, with a dry wit and a good soul. He will be missed.

Fuck I can't believe it.

That seems a little harsh to say. I'm glad to see that you care about the human condition.

I care about the human condition...I just don't care about a douche bag with a music career.

Fuck off DSIC. That's no way to respond to Steele's death, or anyone else for that matter.

Last I checked I could respond any way I feel like about any topic I wanted. It's exactly how I feel. You don't have to agree with me or my approach.

Dude, there is a big difference between ripping on movies and disrespecting someone who has died. You want to rip a movie to shreds all day, cool. No one's going to look down on you for that. But kicking the dead while they're down (unless they're zombies) is pathetic and immature. So, once again and for the last time, go fuck yourself.

moderator Actually, If you're posting

Actually, If you're posting with no other motive than to just be a douche, then yeah, I can make it so that you can't comment any way that you feel.

It's one thing to be confrontational and opinionated about movies and such, but when a beloved figure passes, whether you dig them or not, would it really hurt you to show a little respect?

I don't see things the way you do. A lot of people die that are beloved to someone and I'm sure everyone here has had a harsh thing or two to say. I just don't pretend that I'm above it.

You are a shit stain on this site, and the ONLY reason you aren't banned is because we don't want you coming back to troll. But know that no one likes you here, so it would be appreciated if you did one classy thing in your life, and that's show yourself the door.

I'll even send you a parting gift.

If you reply to this with a snarky comment, or choose to stick around, then you'll only be proving my point that you are like a child who is busted and instead of getting their shit together, choose instead to get even worse.

Okay, that's enough. No more insults either way please.

OK Uncle Creepy. I'm done, said my piece. You'll hear no on this from me.

Well, good for you. That's wonderful. You get cool points.

I thought you got cool points for every purchase? I saved my cool points to buy a tote bag.
