Peter Steele, lead singer of Type O’ Negative, passed away from heart failure yesterday, at age 48.
I love Type O’ Negative! Bloody Kisses and October Rust are two of my all time favorite albums. Type O’s music is dark, melodic, brooding, and metal.
The reason I put this on a role-playing blog is I can’t count how many RPG fans are also Type O’ Fans. Hell my fondest early role-playing memories are of me sitting at my friends house listening to Type O’ while playing AD&D (2e) or Vampire the Masquarade.
I’m happy I still have all Type O’s music for my games, but I am sad that no more shall be coming. The dark cloud that is Peter Steele has disapated, and for that I am truly saddened.
I shall end this with words of wisdom from Peter Steele himself:
“Jesus Christ looks like me, Jesus Christ yeah.. Jesus Christ does (while pelvic thrusting)!”
