Peter Steele, the legendary vocalist of Type O Negative and Carnivore, who passed away from heart failure on April 14, 2010 at the age of 48 will always be remembered for his charisma and his timeless anthemic songs. It has recently been announced that Metal journalist Jeff Wagner is writing an authorized biography of the frontman called "Soul On Fire" and he is asking fans to help.
Jeff Wagner has worked at Relapse, The End and Century Media Records, and was an editor at Metal Maniacs magazine from 1997 to 2001. He also wrote his first book on progressive Metal: "Mean Deviation: Four Decades of Progressive Heavy Metal".
Jeff described this project: "the authorized biography of Peter Steele will be a comprehensive investigation of his life and music, supported by those who knew him best, written by a fan, for the fans.
"If you're a fan, have recollections of meeting Peter, have photos, tattoos, or anything, PM the Facebook group HERE. This is a total labor of love and one that his followers will hopefully find an indispensable part of the Type O continuum. Stay Negative!"
