Type O Negative - Peter Steele Authorized Biography In The Works

We all remember Peter Steele, the legendary vocalist of Type O Negative and also Carnivore, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 48 reportedly due to a heart failure. Now it has been reported 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. 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!"

Cool project but how is this "authorized"? Does Jeff Wagner have a Ouija board or something?

Agreed. I'm pretty sure labeling it as "written by a fan, for the fans" automatically discredits it as being official.
Nevertheless, I'm eager to see this.

At the least, they'll probably track down his Playgirl photos hahaha

Also: vocalist AND BASSIST. Never forget that.

"While the book contains interviews from friends, family, band mates and yes, even a few ex-girlfriends... authorization can only be done by the person Peter left in charge of his estate. We assure you, this book is authorized by those closest to him, and will contain a wide assortment of reflections from those who knew him best."

This is the answer I have for you right now. It was a new post on the project's Facebook page.
