My Chemical Freak: My Chemical Romance All The Time

Gerard Way Explains The End Of My Chemical Romance

For several months now I have tried not to think about all the things that could have possibly led up to the ultimate break down of the “band” My Chemical Romance. I tried to take Gerard’s very confusing explanation and chock it up to not understanding them as individuals, but only as a band (or at least I thought I did). Then I read what Frank said about not knowing the band was truly broken up until the announcement on their official site; and honestly that left me reeling with anger. What could possibly cause someone to do something like that and not even explain it to his own band mates? I never pretended to know them as individuals, but I always tried to understand where they were coming from. I now have a new found respect for Gerard Way and this video below answers questions that, I am sure, all of us have had at some point or another. As for me, my heart genuinely aches right now.

Gerard Way… in his own words.

Well said, Brandi. This is probably the most light we can expect to be shed for anytime in the near future. And it’s the most in-depth explanation thus far.

Thanks for posting this, Brandi. I’d heard he talked about this but hadn’t seen the video.

Ha! Really? This dude is ridiculous…

Someone needs to make a meme:

“Breaks up band because he’s making too much money”

“Thousands of musicians continue to starve.’

What is interesting about seeing this all now is when he says old habits we know know he meant drinking. I know he feels that conventional weapons was a radio record but I loved it. I seemed really documentary of the band the transition from TBP to DD. I really think MCR5 would have been a badass record because it would have been super dark and angery which I think a lot of the fans had been craving to hear. It’s still super shitty that he broke up the band because of his own personal issues but whatever.
