One soul... Reincarnated  four times... Five men of destiny...  each reincarnation traveling through time to 2020 to form the greatest rock band of all time... "Dead Mama Trauma"

    It's a story best told in five parts, so let us begin....

    

Dr. Chandler Cuthbert

    Best to start at the beginning. Born in 1325, Chandler Cuthbert made his whole family proud by becoming a physician in York, at the early age of 24. His mother to whom he was very close, was especially proud of her young son. Unfortunately for young Dr. Cuthbert, the year of his loftiest achievement also happened to be the first year of the "Great Black Plague," in 1349. 

    Chandler was appointed the position of Plague Doctor as his colleges believed the the young strong minded man would have the resolve to combat the devils sickness... Dr. Cuthbert took his responsibilities as a Plague Doctor very seriously, and fought for every one of his patients.... Until the day that his beloved mother took ill with the plague.

    Dr. Cuthbert refused to see his other patients, giving every waking moment of his time to the treatment of the woman who had cared for him his entire life... but alas... despite all of his efforts, Dr. Cuthbert failed to save his mother, and one dark morning she passed away in his arms...

    Chandler would stand by her grave, donning his Plague Doctors uniform, never eating, never sleeping, never leaving... Longing for a purpose...     

    Until a strange traveler, who claimed to be from the future, found him there standing at his mothers grave, and offered him a new purpose... and brought him back to the future, to heal souls with Rock Music, and play lead guitar in the greatest band in history.

"Rabid" Rex McDougall

The First Reincarnation 

    Raised in a small cabin in the woods, just outside of Salem, Massachusetts, Rex McDougall was brought up in a home with many secrets... Rex's mother had always protected him from the world, which she said would unfairly judge him...

    On a cold September morning in 1693, Rex's mother left the safety of their cabin to travel into Salem to gather supplies that their family desperately needed. She told Rex to stay home, and to "Be a good boy," but curious as he was, Rex decided to follow his mother in secret. 

   Upon reaching Salem, Rex's eyes fell upon a horrible site, women being hanged while the crowd screamed, "Witch!" 

The crowd threw things, and grew angrier with each passing moment as they watched the women hanged for their supposed practice of witch craft... Rex imagined how the crowd would treat him if they knew about how he was "Different".  Rex saw his mother trying to pass the crowd as they continued to throw things... He saw a projectile headed toward his mother, but was to afraid to shout out to warn her...

    A cabbage thrown from the crowd struck his mother directly in the head, killing her instantly. Rex could only look on helplessly as he saw the crowd gather around his fallen mother. They argued over who was responsible for the heinous act, but when no one came forward, decided that the cabbage must also be a witch, and hanged the cabbage as well...

   Rex became consumed with vengeance, he stalked the woods of Salem attacking any who dared to enter... until one day he came across a strange man claiming to be a time traveler. The man told him that there was a better place for Rex to focus his anger over the death of his mother, and handed him a pair of drum sticks.....

    Also..... Rex McDougall... is a Werewolf!!!   

Maxwell Gein

The Second Reincarnation 

    Born in 1885... As a young boy Maxwell was prone to violence, due to his troubled life, and often condemned by the small community where he was raised by his single mother, in Madisonville, Louisiana.

    He grew up poor, his mother resorting to prostitution as the only means to keep food on the table, and provide shelter for the two of them, though it was no more than a run down shack. 

    Often Maxwell was referred to as the "The Psycho Bastard of Madisonville," by the locals, and treated very poorly. Never knowing who his father was, and being shunned by the locals, Maxwell had a profound love for his mother, as she had been the only person to have ever shown him love, kindness and affection...

    One cold night in December, 1895, Maxwell awoke suddenly to the sound of his mother screaming, Scared and confused, he crashed into her room only to see one of his mothers "customers," standing over her lifeless blood soaked body, the knife used to kill her still in his hand...

   Something in Maxwell's mind broke in that moment, never to be fixed again... His sanity shattered by the image of his deceased mother, Maxwell lunged forward jumping upon his mothers killer, and using his own juvenile teeth, tore out the throat of the monster who took his mother away from him... 

    Upon arriving at the scene, local police blamed the death of both deceased on Maxwell, given his well known history of violence... Maxwell was locked away for life in the "Darkwood Asylum for the Criminally Insane"....Until one night a man who claimed to be a time traveler appeared in his cell, and told him that he had a way for Maxwell to tell his story to the world... as the lead vocalist for the greatest rock band in history!

Bone Crusher O'Brien

The Third Reincarnation

    A local tough guy, from Derry, North Ireland, "Bone Crusher O'Brien" was a locally celebrated Irish Pro-Wrestler. Crusher would often challenge the best wrestlers Britain had to offer and destroy them in the ring, something the Irish people adored him for, given the political climate in Ireland at the time... But his biggest match was Scheduled for January 30th 1972, against British Heavy Weight Champion, "Albert Wall."  This was going to be the the battle of the century, fueled by the political  outrage on both sides, it was not just "O'brien vs Wall," but was looked upon as "Ireland Vs Britain." 

    Day's before the bout, Crusher's father was arrested by British soldiers who claimed they had reason to believe O'Brien's father had ties to the "Irish Republican Army," but offered no evidence, or proof of any sort... The locals of Derry were not strangers to this type of intimidation tactic and decided that they too would take a stand on January 30th in the form of a political protest... 

 

    Though O'Brien's own mother desperately wanted to be in her sons corner for the biggest match of his career, both Crusher and his mother decided that his father would need her more, and so she would stay in Derry, and make a stand.

    The night of the big match, while he sat in his locker room waiting to be called down to the ring to face "Albert Wall," listening to the roar of the crowd as they cheered in anticipation, there was a knock at O'Brien's door. It was a messenger, he told O'Brien that the protest in Derry turned violent, and that people were killed... his dear mother amongst them... Shot to death by a British Soldier... They called it "Bloody Sunday"... Bone Crusher summoned all of his strength and resolved and marched down to the ring, where he suffered his second greatest loss in the same day... He failed his people.. he failed his family, he failed his dear mother....

    Battered and beaten, Bone Crusher O'Brien returned to his locker room, only to find a strange man waiting for him, holding a Bass guitar... he said he was a time traveler...

Sylvester Stacks 

The Fourth Reincarnation, A.K.A. "The Time Traveling  Record Producer"

    Born in 1983, Sylvester Stacks seemingly had a fairly normal life... But nothing could be further from the truth... 

    Sylvester was haunted by visions of his previous lives, four lives to be precise, a Plague Doctor, a Werewolf, a Psychopath, and an Irish Pro Wrestler... Each of his previous lives were full of suffering, and mental illness caused by traumatic events, and in each of his lives, including the present he had lost his mother. Sylvester's mother died in a car accident when he was just a boy, she meant the world to him... He would be forced to lose his mother again and again, not just in this life, but in visions of lives he had once lived in the past... 

    Sylvester focused all of his pain into a struggling rock music career, but it was all for nothing, society no longer wanted to listen to rock music, all they wanted to listen to and watch were beautiful people using auto-tune... Sylvester was not strong enough to take on the music industry alone... so he decided to get some help...

Sylvester found that through the practice of lucid dreaming he could contact his previous selves, and eventually he discovered a way to bring them through the dream realm and into his existence. He began to teach each former version of himself, how to Rock... Helping them to release their pain through music just as he had... And what Sylvester now saw before him was........ THE GREATEST ROCK BAND OF ALL TIME!!!!
