Kenneth Shaun Hickey (born May 22, 1966 in New York, married childhood sweetheart Bonnie Alicia Wyss, and fathered two children: daughters Megan and Aliya). He is the guitarist for the gothic metal band Type O Negative from Brooklyn, New York since they formed the band in 1990. He is also the vocalist and guitarist for heavy metal band Seventh Void, and the touring guitarist for Danzig. Both bands also feature fellow Type O Negative member Johnny Kelly on drums.


Type O Negative

In 1989, Kenny was asked to join then new band Type O Negative after former Carnivore guitarist Marc Piovanetti declined. Kenny was a childhood friend of the band, growing up in the same neighborhood as the rest of the band members. He has been on every Type O Negative release with fellow members Peter Steele and Josh Silver (Johnny Kelly joined in 1994).

He is the quietest member of Type O Negative, often taking a back seat behind the other members when it comes to interviews and/or public comments (although the other band members will tell you humorously that that isn't the case on the tour bus).


Formally, Kenny played Fernandes Monterey and Vertigo guitars . As of the Dead Again tour, plays a custom Schecter EX baritone with a Sustaniac Stealth Pro Sustainer system. Kenny is also known to use Fernandes Sustainer system and other systems extensively.

In the early days of Type O Negative Kenny played a Gibson Flying V.


He directed the music video Everything Dies for the World Coming Down album, and is also known as a short story writer. He sings most backing and some lead vocals in various songs on every Type O Negative album.

He claims to have been completely free from drugs since the October Rust album, released in 1996.
