Peter Steele Dead?
Peter Steele, the lead singer and bassist of Type O Negative, is rumoured to have died – again.
News of the 48-year-old Steele’s apparent demise spread on internet early yesterday (April 14). The rumours claimed that Steele had passed away following a heart attack. However, no official statement confirming the news has been made as yet by Type O Negative.
The rumours of Steele’s death began when Mistress Juliya of US music channel Fuse TV Tweeted that Type O guitarist Kenny Hickey had told her his bandmate had passed away.
However, this is not the first time a Steele death rumour has spread over the internet. The reasons for his apparent death in 2005 ranged from Aids to cancer and even suicide – but the reports proved to be a hoax.
