Link.

 

This man's band was the soundtrack to my teenage years. Especially their album "October Rust", it was constantly on in the background at every party we went to while getting drunk at the age of 15-16. Especially this song.

Well, I do remember some stories about the fact that.. uhm.. he was well-endowed... but no, that wasn't his profession.

:(

He was a damn' good artist, and that's coming from someone who's never been a fan of Type O Negative.

R.I.P. Pete, the musical scene will miss you very much.

I'm pretty sure he actually posed for Playgirl. And all the goth girls swooned.

 

The thing that really separated Type O Negative from all the other doom n' gloom black metal bands out there was the sly wit and black humor of their lyrics. Listen to "Everyone I Love Is Dead" or "Unsuccessfully Coping with the Natural Beauty of Infidelity" for examples. If it weren't for that, I'd probably never have given them the time of day, as I'm not a huge fan of the genre.

 

Oh, and their cover of "Cinnamon Girl" was pretty righteous.


baby, take off your beret

everyone's a critic and most people are DJs

And given that only 20% of the readership for Playgirl is actually female, so did a bunch of goth guys...

May he rest in pieces. :lol:


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

This.

 

His sense of humor is what made Type o' Negative is special, considering the genre that they played.

True, his was the only 90's goth that didn't suck.
