Peter Steele, front man for Type O Negative, died the night of April 14, 2010. In an email, Mike Renault, the band's manager, told CBS News, "Peter passed away last night. As of now it appears to have been heart failure. That's all the details we have right now."
News of Steeleâ€™s death was initially received with disbelief as Steele pulled a hoax in 2005 posting his picture and the years â€œ1962-2005â€³ on the groupâ€™s official website. Soon after, Steele all but disappeared as he battled drug problems and a prison stint.http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/i ... ead-at-48/
