When asked how Steve Grimmett's recovery was coming along  (11:50 mark)
"It's going really good, I'm in training now getting my new leg (prosthetic), which I should have in about 4 weeks time. Then I can only put it on and take it off until I go to the Swindon hospital, where I am having my therapy and they will teach me how to walk. I know that is not easy and I know there is a lot of pain involved, I'm up for that, let's get going. I'm still living on the ground floor at my house cause I can't get up the stairs but that's ok. I'm waiting for a company to install a chair lift and they make doors and bathroom wider so I can take a shower cause I haven't had a shower since this happened, I fucken stink (laughs) I do wash."
 
When asked when Steve would be returning to the stage for his first performance (14:20)
"We got a show in the middle of July 2017, in Germany at the Bang you 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. "
 
When asked if Grim Reaper will be releasing a live album anytime soon (15:47)
"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)."
 
When asked about a new album and a new book (18:56)
"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."

STEVE GRIMMETT Reports In Live From Hospital

 
Jimmy Kay from Canada's The Metal Voice streamed live into the hospital in Ecuador where Steve Grimmett (singer Grim Reaper) and wife Millie Grimmett  updated their fans on Steve's medical condition. Also joining the show Tony Dolan (Venom Inc) and former singer of Anthrax Neil Turbin

Two announcements were made during the show, the first a fundraising show in their hometown of Swindon, England  on April 1 organized  by Brian Keene at the Riff's Bar

The second announcnemt was well known Metal Artist coming together to re-record a Grim Reaper Song  to help raise funds towards Steve Grimmett. medical and recovery costs.  Spearheaded by Tony Dolan  aided by Neil Turbin (Ex Anthrax) and Sy Keeler (Onslaught). The contribution artists include Gary Holt (Slayer Exodus) Ripper Owens (ex Judas Priest), Doro Pesch, Lipps (Anvil), Neil Turbin (Deathriders), Sy Keeler (Onslaught), Bobby Blitz (Overkill), Nick Bowcott (Ex Grim Reaper), John Gallagher (Raven), Mantas (Venom) and more to be announced soon, the song will be produced by Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest)

Millie Grimmett gave The Metal Voice a medical status update on Steve's present condition, "He has had four operations now, yesterday he had an operation to clean the wound a bit more, open it up a bit, put a drain in there to stop any further infections. So far the infection has stabilized. They have not stitched the wound up it's still open, they got a drain in there they are hoping it might help stop any infections. He can't fly until ten days after a big operation, so the earliest he can fly is this Friday. You got the high altitude because of the pressure of the plane, you have the risks of blood clotting, bleeding again, wounds opening so we have to make sure he can actually survive the flight because in total it is 19 hours door to door and we have to get two planes, it's a gruelling journey for everybody "

Mille went on, "I have a meeting with  the Doctor tomorrow morning to discuss how he is doing and recovery and there is another treatment they can use, using oxygen. So we are hoping they might be able to do that over the next few days. which could speed up the process of recovery. the donations have helped the both of us. Now I am here Steve has perked up a bit and it makes me feel a bot better to see him but we are still alone out here and we want to go home. "

Mille commented about the Hospital Staff,"They are very friendly, very nice, even though we both don't speak the same language, we still have a laugh, making Steve laugh making him smile, they do what they can with what they got, they don't have the same resources here. Steve said to me the other day that, last week he was in a ward downstairs and gentleman by him had heart failure and they didn't have a defibrillator so unfortunately the gentleman died, they did all they could, they have done a great job with Steve."

Lying on his hospital bed Steve Grimmett said a few words, I am very humbled I didn't realize that I meant so much to other people, I got no words other than THANK YOU and when I am out on my new leg I'm going to come out and sing for a big party."

Grimmett continued about finally being reunited with his wife. " it was such a relief to have somebody that I could talk to, cause she is not only my wife, she's my best friend, she's my sole mate, it makes everything easier. I found that in this metal community of ours we have love and respect for each other and to be fair I've never met any assholes."

But strange things are afoot on this stormy evening as paranormal disturbances cause a reality shift for - well, it's probably best that you check things out for yourselves...
