Peter Steele

Peter Thomas Ratajczyk aka Peter Steele 
 Born January 4, 1962 in Brooklyn,NY  Peter was the bassist and lead singer of the Gothic metal group "Type O Negative".  Just because his music gave the indication that he did not like women nothing could be farther from the truth. Peter was a surprise for his family he was the youngest of 6 and the only boy with his sister born just before him being 10 years older. So the man was raised to respect women. To me Peter had the most beautiful green eyes. He was absolutely mesmerizing with his green eyes, black hair and 6 ft. 8 in. body. In 1995 in what Peter called "a naive publicity stunt" he posed for Playgirl magazine. He fought many years with substance abuse before finally getting sober & healthy for the last 8 months of his life. He died in Pennsylvania on April14,2010 at the age of 48 of heart failure.


  1. I'm reading "The Hangman's Daughter" Series by Oliver Pötzsch and it's too bad Peter is gone....when I read each book (I'm on book #3 The Beggar King) - Peter should have played in a movie as Jakob Kuisl. In the books, Jakob is the executioner for a small Bavarian Town. A executioner with intelligence, in his own way, gentle and well - I read the book and think of Peter, he would have been perfect for the part. Wonder what his family DNA/History was. Would be interesting to know who his ancestors were. While I am older, I still consider his music beautiful and intricate.

    So sad he didn't have any children.

    Very handsome and talented man.

  2. Angel is by Tears of Passion I believe. I think this is labeled incorrectly.

    Beautiful song and probably Peter would have liked it.
