Gerard Way was born on 9th April 1977, which makes him 30. He is from New Jersey, as is the rest of the band apart from Bob Bryar who is from Chicago. He has always had an interest in drawing and comics.
Gerard witnessed the planes going into the Twin Towers on Spetember 11th and this made him feel that he had to make a difference in the world instead of making cartoons.
Gerard has changed very much from when he first started the band. When he first started he used to have long black hair and for live shows he used to paint cuts on his face and wear a white shirt with black trousers. When the second album came out, he changed again by wearing a black suit with a red tie and he used to paint his face white and thne paint a black stripe across his eyes. For the 'Ghost Of You' video he cut his hair off and not much later MCR took to wearing fake bullet-proof vests on stage. In 2006, the album 'The Black Parade' was released and then the band changed everything. They all wear military uniforms. Gerard dyed his hair a platinum blond to help him make him look more ill and to help him getting into the role of 'the patient'. He has now dyed it back black.
He is my God. He could be my batman anyday. =]
"I'm not psycho...I just like psychotic things.”
“Look at me, with my pretty bracelet and tiara... I'm a f****n' princess!”
“I'd rather be a creature of the night than an old dude.”
"One time, Bert and I were making out for so long it wasn't even funny..But then it was funny.”
-Gerard Way quotes.
And the collision of your kiss that made it so hard.
