Venom Inc. Drop Off 2018 Psycho Las Vegas Festival

Venom Inc. have dropped off the 2018 Psycho Las Vegas festival, which set to take place on August 17-19 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn commented:

It is with regret that I must inform you all that myself and Venom Inc will not be appearing at this years Psycho fest on August 17th. This is due to circumstances completely beyond my control not least of which being myself having a major heart attack on April 30th which did in fact take my life although fortunately I was resuscitated and spent the next month in 3 different hospitals before undergoing a double heart bypass. The other factor of course is that of the visa where the timing of this could not have been worse. I do not cancel shows and even now being only 10 weeks into my recovery period I am doing my utmost to play and perform however due to the unfortunate timing of this period of my life I have to make my apologies and hope you all understand. Please enjoy what I’m sure will be a great festival with great bands and I hope sincerely to see you all very soon. MAXIMUM RESPECT. Jeff.

“On 30th April 2018 our friend, brother and guitarist Jeff ‘Mantas’ Dunn suffered a major heart attack. During the ordeal Jeff died and had to be resuscitated. After a month enduring hospital treatment he received double by pass surgery in Lisbon, Portugal (where he now resides). The operation was a great success and he has been convalescing at home in Portugal.”

Original Venom Guitarist Jeff “Mantas” Dunn Recovering After Undergoing Heart Surgery

Jeff “Mantas” Dunn (Venom Inc., ex-Venom) has revealed that he is currently recovering after undergoing heart surgery. The guitarist shared a statement about the scary situation on Venom Inc.’s Facebook page, and you can read it below.

Mantas said the following:

“A day like any other, sun is shining and myself and Anita leave the house to drive to our next village. Anita needs a new inhaler so we call into the pharmacy to collect one. That is when everything changes. I start to experience what I can only describe as indigestion, but then the pain gets worse. I decide to go back to the car and wait, but by this time, the pain is unbearable. The staff of the pharmacy help me out of the car and take me back inside. An ambulance is called. On its arrival, I am taken into the ambulance to be monitored and assessed. The pain is not subsiding in any way, and so the the paramedics call for a doctor. When the doctor arrives with a nurse, I am immediately hooked up to an ECG and given the news that it appears that two valves in my heart are blocked.

What happened next ranks easily as the most terrifying experience of my life. I can remember calling Anita’s name and then hearing my own voice saying, ‘Fucking fight! Dont you dare give up! FIGHT IT!’ And then, nothing.

I have been told that the paramedics and doctor fought for just over five minutes to bring me back… Essentially, I had died in the ambulance.
When I was stabilized enough to be moved, I was transfered to Leiria coronary care unit, where they attempted to introduce a stent to unblock the arteries. However, this was unsuccessful, and so the next step was to be a double bypass.

After a couple of days under observation and all kinds of medication to keep everything on an even keel. I was moved to Abrantes cardiothoracic unit to await transfer to Lisbon for a double heart bypass.

I am now home resting and recuperating, taking walks and slowly building my strength up.

From this day on, going through airport security will be interesting as my breast bone is clamped together with surgical steel.

There have been things which have happened during these last few weeks which I have found very hard to come to terms with, but it’s getting better.

I simply do not know where or how to begin to thank every single doctor, nurse or health care worker who has played some part, no matter how small, in helping me recover from this. There is still a way to go, but I remain positive.

My thanks and enduring love goes to Anita, who has been with me every step of the way. My brother Tony Dolan, who upon hearing the news took the first available flight to be by my side. My neighbors and friends in our wonderful village who, despite language barriers, have shown so much concern and compassion.

I will hopefully see you on a stage somewhere in the world soon, my friends. Maximum respect, Jeff.”
