Peter Steele - RIP

His heart was just too goth to keep on beating.

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Peter Steele, the driving force behind the Brooklyn-based goth/metal quartet Type O Negative, died Wednesday of apparent heart failure. He was 48.

Known for his vampiric good looks, morbid sense of humor and rich baritone, the singer/bassist was the author of such metal classics as "Christian Woman;" "Black No. 1;" "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend;" and the recent "September Sun."

Man, I loved Type O Negative when I was a teenager. Never did see them perform. I'm feeling all nostalgic now.
