Happy Birthday, Peter Steele (January 4, 1962 – April 14, 2010)

Happy Birthday, Peter Steele. We miss your voice!

The unique voice of the Goth Metal band Type O Negative, may have looked intimidating, but people who knew him would likely describe him as a gentle giant.  His imposing height (reported as anywhere from 6’6″ to 6’8″,) his deep voice, and vampiric style may have seemed scary to some, and in keeping with the style of band, but he was also just a regular guy.  He loved reading, science, and cats.  He lifted weights and worked on cars. He questioned his religion and suffered from almost crippling bouts of stage fright.

Today, on his birthday, I just want to take a moment to remember Peter, celebrate his music, and mourn his untimely death.
