    One time, I saw him play a bass solo while killing zombies with a sword. Plus he was like in a band. Then one time, he was playing so fast his amp was on fire, but he was like screaming. So nobody cared, they were just so rocked.

    I heard he uses swear words in real life.

    I heard he's 12 feet tall and eats nothing but beef jerky but it isn't really beef but actually the meat of giraffes he shot while on safari on the plains of Africa. After he shot the giraffes, he pulled out a 120 neck bass and soloed on every neck at once. It was the most god awful sound but it moved me!

    I went to get Mat Till's newest release, Ambience on a Stick, and the cd store said they didn't have it.

    I was like, "Dang." So I picked up a Tiny Tim cd.

    So, heres how I remeber it. Matt Till just got off a gig, right? It was like 5 AM, and he started at 9 PM the previous night. It was just him, solo all night. But he was playing so fast. He used all six fingers on his right hand.. I'm pretty sure he killed some guys dad... so, this means he was playing fast. All night. He wanted to go home, but it was like encore after encore. Eventually, he broke all 17 of his basses he brought to his gig. He didn't smash them, he just played them too awesome and the basses spirt was broken, it couldn't handle sounding that awesome. Usually they snap at the neck, but sometimes they just turn into powder or spontaneously combust.

    So he tricked the audience into thinking he was going home to get another dozen basses or so, but in reality, he grabbed seven chicks and went home and had sex with them in a swimming pool full of virgin blood and fire. The chicks all died, but I think Matt's like totally fireproof, so he turned out alright.

    I heard he fell off a truck when he was young and broke his leg and so that means he can play better than most animals and all humans. He such a nice guy he even spat on me at his concert.

    Matt Till was the father of every kid in town. He was just shy of 9 feet tall and weighed in at 450 lbs. I once walked in on my wife and Matt Till making love and it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen.

    I actually killed a man who insulted Matt Till. Hit him with my Matt Till signature bass. It made so beautiful sound when the bass hit the perps head that I wrote a song about it. It's called "No rest Till morning"

    Matt Till only needed no strings.

    I once saw him put a metal ring on his finger, and vibrate it over the pickups to make the sound, he could hit ANY note with it, he can also eat 51 marshmallows and sixteen packets of bacon. In one bite.
