Grim Reaper’s Steve Grimmett, who has been keeping the band going under the Steve Grimmett‘s Grim Reaper moniker, recently fell ill during a show in Guayaquil, Ecaudor. Unfortunately, it now appears that he will have to get his foot and part of his leg amputated.
His wife, Millie Grimmett posted the following yesterday:
This is Steve’s wife at Reaper HQ. As many of you know, Steve was taken ill at Saturday night’s gig and he sung most of it sitting down. After the show, Steve was taken to hospital, where he had an operation to remove an infection from his foot and bones. He is still in hospital in Guayaquil, but this is all I know right now. Once I have more information, I will let you know. Thank you for all your support and kind words. It means a lot.
She then offered and update, which revealed bad news regarding his foot and leg:
“Update on Steve…..
Unfortunately, the operation didn’t work and Steve is currently in the operating theatre having limbs removed. We don’t know how much of the leg will need to be removed but Steve is very very ill. He has an aggressive infection that spread very quickly over night.
I am sorry to say the rest of the tour has been cancelled. I am hoping to fly out myself soon and stay with Steve until he is ready to come home so I may meet some of you then.
But don’t worry, the voice WILL be back.
Love and hugs. Millie”
