Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper may release live album and working on book and new record
The Metal Voice‘s Jimmy Kay and Alan Dixon recently interviewed Steve Grimmett, the lead vocalist for Grim Reaper, and his new version of the band called Steve Grimmett’s Grim Reaper.
As of January 14, 2017 until his return to the UK in or about the end of February 2017, Grimmett had been stranded for the most part in a hospital in Ecuador where he had to have a portion of his right leg amputated due to a very serious infection arising from his diabetic condition.
In terms of when he will be returning to the stage, Grimmett stated: “We got a show in the middle of July 2017, in Germany at the Bang Your Head Festival, we are going to play whatever happens cause we have committed to it now but my team thinks that they can get me ready for that, which would be fantastic if not I will do it in a wheelchair. “
With respect to whether Grim Reaper will be releasing a live album anytime soon, Grimmett advised: “I do have a live album in the can, I got it ready to mix, I may start on that in a couple of months time, mix it and get it out [last tour of the United States].”
In regard to a new album and a new book, Grimmett stated: “Ian Nash [guitar] and I, in the next couple of weeks are going to start the new album. I’m writing a book too that has taken a little bit of my time and it won’t be a normal sex drugs and rock and roll. It will be about this experience and some sex drugs and rock and roll [laughs]. It’s going to be about losing of the leg and telling diabetics to shape up cause this could happen to them too.”
