RIP Peter Steele



You defined my musical taste very much as a teen and remained an influence beyond then. RIP. Thanks for that voicemail.

The more I think about it, the more I realize how much TON meant to me personally. I met John on the Type O Negative livejournal fanclub, and through him more great friends. The music got me through physical therapy on my back when I was 18-19, and I still carry the torch as a fan today.

Oh wow, really? Too bad. Was never a big TON fan, but had some respect for their brand of gothy rock-metal.

I've been realizing how much their music means to me, too... so many songs that have such a special and nostalgic place in my heart, for a variety of reasons. So unexpected! :(

Seriously can't believe that shit. What a shame. Seen him at least 7 times, even at L'amour in Brooklyn right before it closed. Just bummed, always thought I'd see Type O again.

At least we have the memories, right?

It's just amazing how many emotions, good and bad, were unearthed from the last 48 hours because of this...
