Now in East Hartford, Connecticut, Matt Danger Goorahoo was born on the historic day when Walker Texas Ranger Chuck Norris traveled back in time to engage his past-self in unarmed combat. On this day, as we all know, many species went extinct from the sheer magnitude of destruction that tore apart the land. As Walker Texas Ranger and his past-self battled, two roundhouse kicks were simultaneously thrown by each Chuck - and such was the velocity of these kicks that when they met, one traveled back in time, tragically kicking Amelia Earhart's plane out of the sky, while the other transported to the Cretaceous period, and struck the ground with such force that every creature within five hundred thousand square miles was immediately obliterated, with the subsequent fallout killing off the rest of the non-avian dinosaurs. The lesser known effect of these two kicks meeting is the conception of Matthew Danger Goorahoo. He was found as an infant by a pack of lions on the plains of Sub-Saharan Africa, who were subsequently and brutally decimated by a wild White Tiger, who took pity on Matt, and raised him as his own. After various encounters with pirates, aliens, paradoxes, and a one armed metallurgist who taught Matt the ways of Metal, He wound up in East Hartford, Connecticut, and from then on, he began devoting his time to writing world changing music, and conquering all who cross his path (including that one chick who was just like "DAMN", and yes, even that one lass who was a generous 4, but when intoxicated, doubled to a formidable 8, as a result of double vision, naturally), and everything in-between including attending college full time, bouts as an MMA fighter, playing in a few bands, working for "the man", and kicking asses while taking down names for future reference. That is his story thus far, and here, we join his journey to Infamy.
