Steve Grimmett From Grim Reaper: Somebody Should Make Movie About That Guy!

I had the pleasure of getting to meet Steve of Steve Grimmett’s  aka Grim reaper – he was a fucking awesome guy and a great singer who’s life should be made into a Hollywood movie IMO. The guy is 60 years old, had a leg amputated, still sings metal because it’s the only thing he knows how to do, and can still deliver Ronnie James Dio caliber vocals – saw their show and forgot how many awesome songs the have – including this one.

I got to have drinks with him at The Rainbow Bar and Grill, Los Angeles before the show and he was a super cool guy…we talked about Trump, why Bud Light is the best beer on Earth, how even though getting his leg chapped of sucked, it was cool to see fans line up around the block to donate blood (which 3 eventually did) and how the one album he sang on with Onslaught outsold all of the Grim Repear albums (which was something I didn’t expect)

Grim Reaper: Where Are They Now?

  • In a recent interview Steve Grimmett said, “”We have a date of February 19, 2019, (original date was in October 2018) we had to move the date forward because we could not deliver the album on time and neither could the record label. February 19 will gives us a little bit more time to get things done. We have recorded all the guitars, all the drums I have started the vocals, when we get back from the tour I will be doing vocals and bass. it should be done in the next month.””
  • Guitarist Nick Bowcott is a rep for Marshall Amps.
  • Nick Bowcott spoke at Jeff Hannaman’s funeral.
  • Just having the word “hell” in an album title tied Grim Reaper up in lawsuits with their label from 1987 to 1988.
  • Steve Grimmett was in thrash metal band Onslaught. Strangely enough, Onslaught’s first album was “Power From Hell“.
  • The band broke up in 2008.
  • The band re-formed and started work on a new studio album tentatively titled “From Hell” (not joking)
  • In 2017, after collapsing at a show from a leg infection, Steve Grimmett went into surgery. As a result, he had to have a potion of his leg aputated.
