My Chemical Romance told a generation of kids that it was ok to “not” be ok. Front man Gerard Way, of MCR, is back in a new band all his own.
Last night, October 14th, was the 2nd coming out party for Way in Los Angeles as he headlined the world famous Troubadour on Monday the night before. Tuesday was no different as kids and fans alike filled the also-stellar Fonda Theater in Hollywood. Any famous musician often will find pushback from their fans when they don’t play the hits, but Gerard stood firm performing entirely new stuff. I am 100% on board with this as he’s carving out something entirely different on his debut, Hesitant Alien [Reprise Records] (Out Now!).
New chapter and maybe similar stories and “I’m ok” with that. If radio can give him a little push Gerard might be famous twice.
He’s on the road for awhile too. Tour Dates
Tune into TBS tonight (Wednesday October 15th) at 11:00/ 10:00c to catch his performance of “No Shows” on Conan!
