Josh Silver (born November 14,[1] 1962) is the former keyboardist, producer and backing vocalist of the gothic metal band Type O Negative. He joined the band at frontman Peter Steele's request. He played for Type O Negative until they disbanded due to Steele's death on April 14, 2010.

Silver, who is Jewish,[2][3][4][5] was also a founding member, along with Steele, of the short-lived rock group Fallout, the band that gave birth to Carnivore, which ultimately led to Type O Negative. After the breakup of Fallout, Silver formed hard rock band Original Sin.

Silver was first introduced to professional recording and production upon meeting and working with producer and Soundscape Recording Studio owner Richard Termini. Fallout’s earliest recordings trace back to the Termini Soundscape sessions from the late 1970s.
