The following message was posted by Grimmett‘s wife Millie via the Facebook page of Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper about 16 hours ago:
“Hi everyone. This is Steve‘s wife at Reaper HQ. As many of you know steve was taken Ill at Saturday nights 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.

About an hour ago, Grimmett‘s wife Millie posted an update via the Facebook page of Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper:
“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“
Sleaze Roxx wishes Grimmett a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
