Peter Thomas Ratajczyk, better known by his stage name Peter Steele, was the lead singer, bassist, and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative. Before forming Type O Negative, he had created the metal group Fallout and the thrash band Carnivore.

Steele credited Black Sabbath and The Beatles as his key musical inspirations. ... more on Wikipedia
