Type O Negative, one of my favorite bands and a Black Spoiler. My 83 BK Spoiler has some brothers out there. Right Flip?

Thanx for the link, been a while since I've seen that. :-)
I must have seen that Spoiler in action a few times, have visited many ToN concerts in the 90's
I kinda lost track after "October Rust" though...
I've been wondering if maybe that is your black Spoiler (I guess not after your last post) or does mr. Steele still have/uses it?

I spoke to Pete in NYC at the Nokia. He said how great they are after I mentioned that I played them. And he spoke highly of the Wickershams. I know he uses Washburns now and didn't ask if he still had them. Susan and Mica have some good stories to tell. Kenny and Johnny told me how great his Spoilers were and that you couldn't kill them.

Pete died Wednesday from heart failure at the age of 48. I only met him a few times but when I got a call from a friend it really bummed me out. One of my favorite voices in heavy music is no more.

Yes, this was sad news indeed. RIP.
I sold a bass recently to a guy who said he used to spray paint basses with Peter back in the '90s - including the Spoiler(s)...

Pete said in his BassPlayer interview that the Spoiler was the best bass he'd ever played in his life.

Pete was a family friend of ours an he was a simpl amazing person that taught me a lot about everything... He's made a huge impact on my life, my music, and my attitude. I miss him a lot but through him i started playing bass and through his music, i made it through a lot, good and bad. My earliest inspiration to play bass, and my introduction to heavy music. I'll always be grateful for him and everything he's done, RIP Pete. We miss you.
