Happy New Year, folks! “Whatever Happened To….” Wednesday took a bit of a breather over the holidays, but I am determined to keep up a little bit better in the coming year!
It is with a somewhat heavy heart that I bring you today’s “Whatever Happened To….” update, for today would have been Peter Steele’s (singer/songwriter/bassist, Type O Negative, 1962-2010) 50th birthday. I thought it would be a good time to see what the other guys are up to these days, and I was able to find a bit on Johnny and Kenny….
Drummer Johnny Kelly and Guitarist Kenny Hickey formed Seventh Void, adding Hank Hell (Inhuman) and Matt Brown (Uranium 235), and released an album even before Peter Steele’s untimely passing and the end of Type O Negative. They’ve since toured and had Matt Brown leave the band, but Johnny said in the band’s most recent Myspace Blog and Facebook news update that the band is recording demos and hope to record a new album soon.
Kenny also filled in for Kirk Windstein of Kingdom of Sorrow in 2008 and again in 2010 for Ozzfest dates.
Playlist.com had no Seventh Void songs to share, but you can see plenty of the band’s official videos, fan made videos, and interviews at YouTube.
I personally like their sound and hope we’ll be able to hear more from them in the future.
