Grim Reaper Guitarist Nick Bowcott: LET’S GIVE STEVE GRIMMETT THE SEND-OFF HE TRULY DESERVES!!! – 2022
HAPPY 63rd BIRTHDAY IN HEAVEN, MY FRIEND…LET’S GIVE STEVE GRIMMETT THE SEND-OFF HE TRULY DESERVES!!!
GoFundMe set up by a close family friend to help with Steve Grimmett’s funeral expenses. If you can contribute, please do. If you can’t, please share.
Today is Steve Grimmett’s birthday, and unfortunately, he isn’t here to celebrate this one with us – he’s in God’s Tavern (© Zeke Whyaldie!). As I’m sure you know, sadly, Steve- one of the finest rock voices to ever emerge from England – left us on Monday. My thoughts, prayers and love are with his dear wife, Millie, his brother, Mark, his kids, Russ & Sami, and the rest of his family and friends.
Steve’s gift to us all was a priceless one – his voice, and that will always live on and inspire for generations. And for that I’m eternally grateful as it quite literally changed my life via 6 words: “See You In…” and you know the missing word… “my friend”!!
Sadly, the “shallow plastic trench” (© Hunter S. Thompson) that is the Music Industry plus the ravages of Covid on the touring scene, left Steve anything but rich – a truth he wasn’t ashamed to admit: God bless him. To help his family in this time, a close friend has thoughtfully set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral costs.
If Steve’s music with Grim Reaper, Onslaught (what an album that was!), Lionsheart or GrimStine gave you joy, please return the favor and donate to this far beyond worthy fund. Let’s give this much missed man with a massive voice and an even bigger heart, the send-off he truly deserves!!
Until we meet and play together again…Happy Birthday, Steve, my friend.
