Could Have Been An Aging Rocker

Had To Share


Could This Have Been Peter Steele in His 60s?


Actually, I remember the day we took this photo. We were out at  Peter's sister Nancy's house in West Islip, everyone hanging out. Peter was there in his traditional rocker garb standing next to his father - practically the same height. When Pete decided to ask his dad to try on his jacket. Nettie added her own hat to his head and Pete Sr. stood there and posed for us as a tough biker dude (or as I call him: Biker Cowboy). We wished we had another jacket for Pete to wear to stand  next to his dad - because that would be priceless - but we snapped this one before Pete Sr. changed his mind.

  3. Ha! What a great pic : ) I bet Pete loved seeing his Dad dressed up! I do get a lump in my throat now though when I see interveiws with Pete where he is talking about getting old because he never got that chance. Nettie & Pete Sr seem like the most warm hearted and open minded parents. Pete was a lucky guy!

  4. Spitting image I think, it's funny you mentioned you had to hurry and snap the picture before he changed his mind because it looks like he's thinking, "hurry the hell up". Lol. (-)

  14. Peter Sr looks like a rocker version of Clint Eastwood! Peter was very lucky to have parents who supported him.
    I wonder who got Peters leather jacket, he loved it very much and there are many photos of him wearing it and he wore it in Love You To Death.
