Yes, that is spelt correctly. Not grim up North, but Grimm Up North! So called as it was a two day heavy metal festival in Bury, Manchester, organised by Kevin Wynn to raise funds for ongoing medical bills for Steve Grimmett, lead vocalist with Grim Reaper. On a South American tour earlier this year, Steve played a gig seated due to pain in his right foot. Rushed to hospital, an infection in his right foot spread to his knee overnight, resulting in his leg being amputated below the knee. His grit and determination resulted in him being back onstage within a few months!
