This conversation occurred in August 2017, before the launch of the comeback album, Avé. Jeff discusses the album and the uneasy ‘two-band’ solution as bassist/ vocalist Cronos performs under the ‘Venom’ moniker. Jeff also talks about his difficulties with Cronos and his enduring influence as a guitarist. Many other topics are addressed, such as the reception to the 1989 masterpiece Prime Evil. One for the Mantas/ Venom completist!
