Two years ago today we lost Peter Steele of Type O Negative and Carnivore. The shock and despair I felt at learning of the passing of such a talented musician, at such a young age, hits me fresh in the face every time I hear one Peter's songs. We miss you Peter.
To celebrate his life and continue thanking him for the music he left us, I present you with the video for "Black No. 1". This video was my first taste of Type O; I think I saw it on Headbangers Ball. I was immediately captivated by the sound of this incredible band, and it became my mission to find "Bloody Kisses."
The one time I got to see Type O live was in Flint, Michigan. They had Life of Agony opening for them; what an amazing pairing that was. It was a great show. I remember before they played "Black No. 1" Peter said that he was surprised how he wrote four notes and made a million bucks. He said next time he was going to write eight.
Thanks for sharing with us Peter.
