Famous quotes by Peter Steele (31)
"One of the things I've always personally tried to stress with this band was to have some kind of visual aspect and to be consistent with it - like, not to change"
"Instead of slashing my wrists, I just write a bunch of really crummy songs"
"If I wasn't bound to Brooklyn, due to my own personal reasons like taking care of my mother and the fact that this is where the band is based, I would probably move to Iceland"
"I want to stay away from politics, or else I'll probably end up putting my size fifteen foot into my mouth"
"I stay way from that area, and there's only so many songs you can write about love, sex and death"
"I feel that I've grown up a little bit and I'm actually ready to settle down"
"I don't know what to say to that, but I have to agree with Johnny that, yeah, we do touch upon things that most men would rather not admit: That we feel pain, we cry, get sad and sometimes don't deal well with disappointment"
"As far as humor goes, I've always been a very insecure person and I've always wanted to be liked"
"Most bands don't even last fourteen months let alone fourteen years"
"I don't really like to play live. I don't like to be on stage. I feel very self-conscious"

"I've always been very image prone, along the lines of bands like Black Sabbath and even Devo"
"I like to put on hardcore when I have to clean my apartment, which I hate to do, but it's motivational. I like old heavy metal when I'm outside working on my car. Music has definite functions for me"

"It's bad poetry executed by people that can't sing. That's my definition of Rap"

"I find that different types of music are good for certain activities"
"There's a lot of things that go on when you're on tour that cannot be controlled. I'm not even talking about myself, but of course there's sexual activity and drugs, fighting and language; it is certainly not a place to raise a family"
"I think anyone who has an opinion, and voices it, will offend someone"
"I guess I've learned that there's really no such thing as a bad label, there is only a bad contract"
