Matty Cannz is one of the new characters to debut in World Tour. Unlike the returning characters, he primarily plays the drums. As you can tell, he is the instructor of the drums tutorials. He is Australian.


Matty's a man of action and motion who has never wasted time saying in words what he can pound out on any one thing with any other thing. Drumming comes naturally, and beating and breaking things are a way of life. If you can beat it, he can beat it in time... Better than you. -- Guitar Hero World Tour in-game bio


Matty is a young man with a well-built physique, his physical complexion somewhat reminiscent to that of a gorilla (or perhaps even a caveman, given his mannerisms). He sports a 5 o'clock beard, better visible in the cartoon cutscenes. He is either British or Australian, judging by his accent in the drum tutorial.

His outfit is composed of:

Torso: Ashby Dagur
Pants: Nashville Jeans
Shoes: Strapped Up
Accessories: Buckle Band (both arms)


  • Matty's grunting and beast-like noises with erratic drum playing is reminiscent of Animal from The Muppets and that of The Who's original Drummer Keith Moon.
  • He also appears in Guitar Hero Metallica and can be unlocked by getting 55 stars on drums career mode.
