  • Beth from Woodstock, CanadaActually, Matt was a borderline alcoholic. He talks about it often on his blog and talks about how he had to stop drinking for years.
  • Dave from Calgary, CanadaI'm not sure about that "borderline alcoholic" fact. Good only went to college for 3 weeks and "Decided it was crap and I wasn't going back" (according to an old HMV.com profile).

    I remember him saying it was something related to first year college students who think that they own the world, or something along those lines.
