Ex Megadeth Glen Drover Joins Reaper All Stars Songs for Steve Grimmett-The Metal Voice

February 16, 2017

Former Megadeth guitarist Glen Drover joins a list of Metal Heavyweights in the re-recording of three classic Grim Reaper songs. All proceeds of the songs will go to Steve Grimmett's (Grim Reaper) medical and recovery costs. 

 

Glen Drover expressed his excitement about the project to The Metal Voice,

 

"I feel really good about helping in any way I can... I grew up with Grim Reaper, and Steve is an awesome singer !"

The relief project is spearheaded by bassist Tony Dolan from Venom Inc and aided by Neil Turbin (Ex Anthrax, Deathriders), Sy Keller (Onslaught) and Jimmy Kay ( The Metal Voice)

Tony Dolan had this to say about the re-recordings,

 

"There were quite a few choices we could make but once I asked the artists, everyone wanted to do SEE YOU IN HELL and FEAR NO EVIL they are classics. THE SHOW MUST GO ON will also be included because that is what the man (Steve Grimmett) is going to do and that is what he will be doing stronger than ever. We will put  out the songs on 7 inch as well as digital downloads."

Steve Grimmett has been hospitalized in Ecuador since mid-January; the singer was amidst a tour in support of GRIM REAPER’s latest album, Walking In The Shadows.  Millie Grimmett has been updating fans around the globe of the singer’s condition on the bands Facebook page here. Grimmett has endured multiple operations that have resulted in the near complete loss of his right leg.

 

Millie Grimmett updated  The Metal Voice this morning (February 15 2017) on the latest developments,

"After 5 operations, a month in hospital and a week recovering in a hotel, Steve and I are leaving Guayaquil, Ecuador, on Wednesday 15th February, arriving back in the UK on Thursday 16th. Steve will be going straight in to hospital, in the UK, where he will start his rehabilitation. We want to thank all the people we have met and touched our hearts while being here, especially the nurses and doctors. Here's to the next chapter in our new book of life. The show must go on! "
