Type O Negative Members Silent In Late Frontman Peter Steele Biography
The book is set to be released on Halloween and will be called "Soul On Fire: The Life And Music Of Peter Steele," but the book's author, metal journalist Jeff Wagner, has informed fans that Steele's bandmates have shied away from helping him tell Steele's story.
Wagner posted the following message on the book's official Facebook page: "I'm disappointed in the recent decision of the surviving Type O Negative members to not cooperate in the telling of his story. Between January and April, I established contact several times with each of them. Despite emails and phone conversations which were cordial and, I thought, positive, they have made this decision for reasons still unclear.
"On the upside, more than 40 people have participated and shared thoughts, emotions and recollections for this project. This includes people verifiably close to Peter – family, close friends, music industry figures, members of Fallout, Carnivore and session musicians for Type O Negative. This book is being written in tribute to Peter and it is going forward at full steam.
"Josh, Kenny, and Johnny have my contact information. The door is always open for them to take part, albeit prior to its release, currently scheduled for October 31st.
I'd like to believe Peter is having a good laugh at all of us right now."
