Born in Salford in 1965, Maccer made partying into a lifestyle, and hard partying into a religion. He invented the musical style that became known as EXTREMELY BAGGY. There isn't a drug he hasn't tried, a form of self abuse he has not practiced and a musical taboo he has not broken. With The Gurning Chimps he took the sound of Manchester to the world, the world did not know what had hit it. For years, Maccer and the rest of The Chimps, under the careful stewardship of notorious manager Pabsy (whatever happened to him?) toured the world, leaving a trail of destruction, stains and mayhem wherever they went. [[Kent Paul]] became his manager and off they went to America, [[San Andreas]] where they meet [[Carl Johnson]] and get into trouble with the mafia in [[Las Venturas]]. It is rumored that he once got into a fight with [[Madd Dogg]] when Maccer gave him a used tissue, but he turned away this rumor, stating they were good friends, which at least by the end of GTA: San Andreas was true.

Character history

Early life

Born in Salford in 1965, Maccer broke into the music scene in an unknown year. He invented a musical style that became known as "EXTREMELY BAGGY", and became notorious for his hard partying lifestyle, usage of drugs and self abuse, and for breaking musical taboos. This lifestyle would leave Maccer with a stuttering voice and hypersexuality in the form of compulsive masturbation. Forming a band called the Gurning Chimps under the management of a man named Pabsy, the Chimps embarked on a world tour. At some point during the tour, Pabsy vanished and the band ended up under the management of Kent Paul, who took them to America.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Kent Paul hooked the Chimps up with a local drug dealer named The Truth, who took the band into the Bone County desert on a "peyote safari". The trip went bad, with Truth waking up separated from the band in a Los Santos bathhouse. Truth asked Carl Johnson to go find them out on Arco del Oeste, but by the time CJ found them, the other members of the Chimps had vanished, leaving Paul and Maccer behind. CJ took Kent Paul and Maccer looking for the rest of the Chimps, but after a close encounter with some angry snake farmers and no sign of the other Chimps, Paul decided to hope they made it back to civilization, saying that "keyboardists and bassists are a dime a dozen anyway".

Paul asked CJ to drive them to Las Venturas, where his old friend Rosie was involved in running Caligula's Casino. Caligula's was owned by 3 feuding Mafia families, with Rosenberg set as a neutral party. Paul and Maccer were taken hostage by Salvatore Leone to ensure Rosenberg's cooperation. When Salvatore asked CJ to perform a hit on Saint Mark's Bistro in Liberty City, CJ tricked Salvatore into letting Rosenberg, Paul and Maccer go with him as backup. Instead of actually taking them, he had them leave for Los Santos.

On arriving in Los Santos, Kent Paul and Maccer stayed in Madd Dogg's Crib as CJ's guest for the remainder of GTA: San Andreas.

After 1992

After the events of San Andreas, Maccer found the other members of the Gurning Chimps and carried on with a world tour. He was later banned from Australia[2] and went into rehab, using the Epsilon Program.[2] Maccer’s career was effectively stopped during this period due to a series of legal battles, including one lasting seven years,[3] limiting the use of songs by the Gurning Chimps. In 2004, Maccer began planning a come back tour.[4]

Mission appearances

GTA San Andreas

Trivia

  • During the mission Don Peyote if the player waits long enough Maccer will say he has to use the bathroom, and will then get out and urinate. A small animation will be shown before he gets back in the car.
  • According to a cut line, Paul says that Maccer is priapic; a syndrome where an erection lasts for several hours, or even days. This condition is actually very painful and if the blood making the erection doesn't flow back into the body it will stagnate and make matters worse. Priapism can be very common with individuals who have done narcotics such as Cocaine and other blood pressure raising drugs like it. However, this may just be Kent's way of sarcastically insulting Maccer.
  • During Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories (set in 1998), Head Radio DJ Michael Hunt mentions that he was at a backstage party for the Gurning Chimps, during which Maccer was sick on his shoes.
