Max ain't mellow, pal! I personally think he would love himdelf some Nirvana!
No no no! On the surface he is hard but that is because he is lonely and looking for acceptance. On a much deeper level he's suffering from emotional problems. I'm guessing he has father issues, sexual confusion, problems associated with not having a motherly figure around. So beneath his "Grunge Rock" exterior, deep down there is a boy who wants to sit back and listen to the soothing sounds of Enya.
