Max was raised in a Jewish family alongside his three sisters, by parents Bertram and Ruth Weinberg. His family moved frequently so he spent his childhood days in suburban cities Maplewood and South Orange. Since the early days, Max and music became one, as he often visited Broadway shows from the age of two, and little by little grew fond of pit orchestras, and later of country and western music. He started playing from the age of six, and had his first appearance when he turned seven, as he played drums for the bar mitzvah band. Soon he became a child star, performing at local events with Herbie Zane.
He went to the Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, and after matriculation enrolled at the Adelphi University, but then transferred to Seton Hall University, majoring in film studies.
