Death of Peter Steele Confirmed

Type O Negative’s band manager Mike Renault confirmed the death of lead singer Peter Steele in an email to CBS News. Renault explained, “Peter passed away last night. As of now it appears to have been heart failure. That’s all the details we have right now.” Steele was 48.

The band’s website promises “statements from the band and family later today.”

We were so hoping this was just another internet rumor.
