Max‘s wife Gloria shared the following on October 19th, of the lengthy dreadlock having been removed, offering, “It must be snowing in hell today!”
In a 2011 interview with MyTicket, Max discussed his dreadlocks, saying: “Just leave it there, and it grows, and leave it alone. I wash it. It’s clean. I did find food one time. I opened one of them up and found some macaroni or cheese or rice. I think my wife was going through the dreads and [she said], ‘There’s some food in here, right?’ A stash from tour.
“But, yeah, I just let it grow,” he continued. “I’ve been growing it since 1997. That’s when I started. I never stopped. There’s been rumors that I cut it off. Sometimes fans come to me and say, ‘Hey, man, let me see your dreads. Oh, they’re still there. I heard that you cut it off.'”
