On April 14th, 2010, the music world was shocked when Type O Negative bassist/frontman Peter Steele passed away due to heart failure. He was 48 years old. Formed in 1989, the band released seven studio albums, beginning with 1991’s Slow, Deep And Hard and ending with 2007’s Dead Again. They attained popularity with 1993’s Bloody Kisses, which was the first Roadrunner Records album to achieve a platinum selling status.
Now, metal journalist/author Jeff Wagner is working on an authorized biography of the towering musician. He writes via the official Facebook page, “The authorized biography of Peter Steele will be a comprehensive investigation of his life and music, supported by those who knew him best, written by a fan, for the fans.”
Wagner adds, “We assure you, this book is authorized by those closest to him, and will contain a wide assortment of reflections from those who knew him best.“
