Grimmett has been battling a life-threatening condition for a week after being rushed to a local hospital in Ecuador; the singer was amidst a tour in support of Grim Reaper's latest album, Walking In The Shadows.
Grimmett's wife, Amelia Grimmett, has been updating fans around the globe of the singer's condition via the band's official Facebook page since the reports started to surface on January 14. "Last Saturday, whilst doing a gig in Ecuador, Steve was taken very ill," she noted. "He finished the gig sitting down but was transported to a local hospital immediately after the performance where they operated to remove an infection."
In an interview with Jimmy Kay of The Metal Voice this past weekend, Ms. Grimmett further detailed the situation. "The band was only ten days into a South American tour when Steve began to feel ill. He took some tablets thinking it was maybe altitude sickness. However during the early part of the band's performance, Steve's health went downhill quickly. He was taken to hospital and rushed into surgery to attempt to remove a growing infection on his foot. The following morning, they scanned him and confirmed the infection had spread. He was rushed back in to surgery and was told he would at minimum loose a few toes, worse-case scenario his foot. Additional tests were conducted and the infection had again spread. On Wednesday, a decision was made for a third operation; one that resulted in doctors removing Steve's right leg below the knee in order to stop the infection that could, if allowed to spread, take his life."
Fans have taken to social media since initial reports started to appear regarding the beloved singer. Now an official fundraising page has been created to help Steve with costs that are quickly rising. Donations can be made
Speaking to this past weekend's NAMM show Mustaine beamed: "I took some new pictures today of the property. It's an amazing place. We're gonna have a place for magical memories for everybody that's gonna be coming there.
"So far the tickets have been selling really great," he continued. "I don't know that it's gonna completely sell out. I think that we've planned on having a lot of people there, and since it's our first year, there's probably a really good chance everybody's gonna be able to come in.
"But I wouldn't hesitate and wait, because the more people are finding out about this and seeing everything that we're gonna allow them to do, the more it's becoming something that you want to do."
Mustaine continued: "For example, we have the original tracks to 'Countdown To Extinction' there, and part of the whole party is centered around 'Symphony Of Destruction'. So if people wanna be in an additional part of the boot camp, all they need to do is say, 'I wanna be part of this singing 'Symphony Of Destruction',' and they go into the studio, which is on my property, and they get to sing along with the original song.
"Everybody gets a half hour in there. They go, they sing, they get their mix, and then forever they've got their version of them singing along in the studio with MEGADETH. And the last night, we're gonna have everybody up getting together on the hill to do - hopefully, if there's as many people as we're thinking - a hundred-plus people playing along to 'Symphony Of Destruction' together, which will be so freaking metal."

Frontman Jonas Bjerre had the following comments about the making of the new effort, "The live shows around that album saw us hit a creative peak, writing tracks on-the-road and the spark was lit.
"Breaking the normal cycle felt right and we wanted to make an album spontaneously retaining the energy we'd generated on that world tour, rather than wait the normal three or four years."

'What Is Life" is already and upbeat, feel good song and the new music video is a wonderfully whimsical addition with a dancer moving her way out of her home, through the streets, past a cemetery (frolicking around tombstones never looked so carefree), and finally in the woods where she meets her equally playful dance partner. Watch the delightfully choreographed videohere.
"Today I'm leaving this studio and going to another studio, and I'm gonna make a bunch of racket," Inez tells Framus & Warwick. "Yeah, we're hard at work. We're always doing something - I mean, it's just what we do. We just play, and usually everything else will come together.
"We used to worry about the label, or the management," he continues. "The band has turned into a… It's a business, you know, and there's a lot going on [with the] business. So when we go into these studios, this is kind of like our clubhouse, this is the place that we go, and we try not to make this business. This is fun, and we try to make our work environment fun for each other."
"Being in the studio for twenty hours a day isn't fun, but it's a great job," adds Inez. "But we try to make that our clubhouse and separate that from the business, kind of. So we're still in that… playing in the sandbox, kind of, for this new record anyways. We're still getting together in the same city, and plugging in in the same room. Today is actually our first day, and I'm already late, 'cause I'm here talking to you [laughs], so it shows you how professional we still are."here.
