Crap. It sucks to get old. Obituaries start hitting home.

TYPE O NEGATIVE PETE STEELE DEAD AT 48

Dark Archive

I will make sure to play "USA for USA" in his memory.

Wow, the ex is going to be heart broken. She still gets that far away look when she looks at his Playgirl spread (seriously, dude made Mr. Ed jealous).

But he did look pretty rough when we saw Type O last year.

R.I.P. dude.

this really, really sucks. i've been totally bummed since i heard last night.

some memorable quotes from peter steele, showing what a true character he was:

"this is gonna be our last song for the night. my deodorant is wearing off and i can't stand the smell of myself." -during a concert.

"i'm less miserable." -when asked by rikki lake if he was excited to be on her show.

"i went to jail for accidently punching someone fifty times." -when asked why he went to jail.

"i went from dope to pope." -when describing rehab and finding religion.

i'll miss you, pete.

Granted, though, he was looking really bad toward the end. Really tall people are prone to heart failure anyway, and the years of drug abuse didn't help any.

I hated to simply assume this was the case, but you know, rock star, dying young.

Damn it.

He'd been clean for years, but doing any amount of drugs at any time really puts you at risk.

Yeah, that's why I'm still worried about a number of other musicians(and shocked and amazed that some are still kicking), but that's probably best left for another thread.

RIP, Pete.
