Maccer (born 1965[1] in Salford, England)[1] is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as a minor character. Maccer is the lead singer of the Gurning Chimps and is on his first tour of America. Shaun Ryder voiced Maccer.[2]

Recording artist, hedonist, pleasure seeker in so many ways, Maccer has personified the Manchester scene for years.

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.

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[3] and went into rehab, using the Epsilon Program.[3] Maccer’s career was effectively stopped during this period due to a series of legal battles, including one lasting seven years,[4] limiting the use of songs by the Gurning Chimps. In 2004, Maccer began planning a come back tour.[5]
