Gerard Arthur Way (born April 9, 1977) of Newark, New Jersey (later of Belleville, New Jersey) is front man and co-founder of the band My Chemical Romance, in which his brother Mikey Way plays bass.

Way played in a band until his early teens, at which time he decided to turn toward the graphic arts. After graduating from high school in 1995, he attended School of Visual Arts in New York City graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1999. In 2001, Way says he tried to sell an animated television series to the Cartoon Network called The Breakfast Monkey. He maintains that Cartoon Network turned down the pitch because it was too similar to Aqua Teen Hunger Force, then already in production.

Way was discouraged by the failure of his cartoon concept. As a resident of New York City, the 9/11 attacks affected Way deeply. Wanting to move his life in a new direction, he found himself motivated to form My Chemical Romance. The name came from a book written by Irvine Welsh called "Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance". The band's name was suggested by Mikey Way. Gerard brought together Ray Toro, Matt Pelissier, Frank Iero, and his brother Mikey to play gigs along the East Coast. The band soon released its first album, I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. Music turned out to be an effective means for Way (the band's lead singer and primary songwriter) to deal with his long time battle against depression, alcoholism, and prescription drug abuse, leading to deeply personal songs such as "Helena" (written after the death of his grandmother, Elena Lee Rush).

Despite his success as a musician, Way has not left his drawing behind: He drew all of the art on the band's second album, Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge.

Career and music

Way was working for the Cartoon Network in New York City during the September 11, 2001 attacks. Seeing the effects of the attacks first hand prompted Way to change his views on life in the following weeks. He told Spin magazine, "I literally said to myself, 'F--k art. I’ve gotta get out of the basement. I’ve gotta see the world. I’ve gotta make a difference.'"[6] To help deal with the emotional effects the attacks had on him, Way wrote the lyrics to the song 'Skylines and Turnstiles' which since, has been regarded as "the first song by My Chemical Romance".[7]Soon after, the formation of My Chemical Romance began.

In many interviews Way has stated that music turned out to be an effective outlet to deal with his long-time battles against depression, alcoholism and prescription drug use. The use of music as a way to resolve personal battles has caused Way to create deeply personal songs such as "Helena",[8] which was written in memory of his late grandmother mentioned above.

Way has recently established himself as comic-book writer, writing for the comic miniseries, The Umbrella Academy. The Umbrella Academy was first released in the Dark Horse '2007-Free-Comic-Book-Day' issue on May 5th.[9] Since then, an eight-page story has been published on MySpace, entitled "Safe & Sound"[10].The first official issue was released on September 19, 2007.[11] Mass sales caused the first issue to sell out and consequently there was a second printing released on October 17, 2007.[12]

gerard way looks gd no matter what hair he has, but his beauty does not matter its wats on the inside that matters the most and it wasn't his fault that he was born completely gorgeous. that's the thing people who say they love him don't they love his looks and the fact he is famous not actually him.

Gerard Way, never mind his hairi think hes suited mst pref shot nd dark, but gy's e has 2 have 1 of the nices set  eyes iv evercn would u not agree. ad Mr Way if uver read this u are beautifull vry pleasing 2 the eye and i love ur music u need a major pat on the back and b poud!!!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

gerard way is the fittest person in the world and has a fantastic voice, he is a devil that was made by angels

Gerard way is completely hottttt and can't wait to see him perform in manchester tommorow (24/3/07)

Gerard Way is cute even wit blond hair he's a g8 inspiration. I feel very strong about it coz they are the best. Hopefully my band will be as successful as them. and if people were true fans they would think that Gerard is cute wit any hair colour.

 

If you have your music hosted somewhere

give us a link to show here :-)

I think that gerad way is an inspiration and he is the reason i am starting a band (i'm a singer) yea he is cute but he also has a great talent which hopefully other people can see as well as his looks i know i do.

gErArd AtHuR wAy is the best!i love him till' death tear us apart!

gerard way inspires each and evry single of his fans. he is a roll model to lead!!!!!!!he is smoken hottttttt and he sings like hell!!!!!!he should go back to his dark-hair days, but he is still hottttttt u can see that his hair s on fire!!! i luv u gerard way

Oh, I love Gerard Way. He is such an inspiration! I have a band (to which I am the rhythm guitar) and one of my major influences is Gerard Way and My Chemical Romance. I don't go one day with out thinking about them, and how strong Gerard is. Gerard is one of the great geniuses of the world in modern time...and this all is coming from an intense rock/alternative music lover. I just can't imaging how dull and bleak the world would be if they weren't born. I love them to pieces! I would love to meet them, since they are my favourite band in the world. This guy says I'm a depressing emo, but he doesn't even know me that well. They have shown to me that no one person can make you the person you are! You by yourself do that! They are the best, and I hope that every one that hates and kills in the world would realize what Gerard and My Chemical Romance have made! I hope someone gets my point!

OMG!!!!! I LUV GERARD WAY !!!!!!!!!(even if blonde isn't him) HE IS STILL SO SO SO HOT !!!!!I LUV GERARD WAY!!!

gerard way is sooo awesome he has the coolest voice ever

i agree with the people that say gerard  way looked better with long black hair because he did buy he is still super fit with short blonde hair

I think gerard way looked hotter with his long black hair, but he is still hot

Gerard Way is soo damn cute!!! I love the way he's hair is now

i love his hair

if you were a true Gerard fan you would love his new hair style as i do!!!! He looks good in just about anything!!!

Gerard Way is fit, but his hair doesn't look as good as it does now.
