Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan (Venom Inc.) Undergoes Hip Surgery

Tony “Demolition Man” Dolan (Venom Inc.) has revealed that he recently underwent hip surgery at a hospital in London on August 15. He told Lords Of Metal following:

“The pain is not so bad. I just feel happy that it is done at last. I’ve had an accident as a 12-year-old kid, when I was hit by a car and landed flat, after the car had thrown me 20 feet straight up in the air. The last ten years, I’ve been attempting to get help, and the last three years in Venom Inc., there was always a reason why it couldn’t happen, mostly due to rescheduling at the hospital. It came to the point I could wait no longer; I could barely walk after Wacken. So I am very happy it is finally done and I can look forward.”

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.
