You Can't Go Out If Your Roots Are Showing ... Dye Them Black !
A fan reminded us this morning that Black No. 1 was the song that got him into loving Type O Negative. I'm sure this resonates with lots of people.
MTV noted this shot to be one of the scariest monsters in music ... every year around Halloween they do an ad with a pic of the wolfman, then dracula, then this picture of Pete ... A bit scary, YEAH, I sort of agree.
Pete's been playing the stand-up bass since attending Edward R. Murrow high school (with fellow Carnivore bandmate Stan Pillis). Actually, Pete plays several instruments, including drums, tuba, piano, and is a classically-trained musician in college where he wrote several orchestated pieces. Which, if you read Josh Silver's comments in MetalSucks yesterday, you would understand how he liked to put together complex components of music - similar to an orchestration - but in metal music sounds.
What I like about the video is the FUN and playful attitude of it. It's full of action and personality. It's a great piece to sing along too, in the car, windows open, not caring about the car next to you. Turn it up ... This song is an anthem to the goth fans ... be yourself and express how you feel ... and for the christ's sakes, dye your hair already !
