Gerard was born April 19, 1977 in Summit, New Jersey.
He got into comic books at a young age and attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Coming from his art job in New York City, he witnessed the tragic event known as 9/11. He decided to make a change on the world.
So he formed My Chemical Romance!
They brought messages to their listeners and made everyone fit in. They saved lives.
"Stay beautiful, keep it ugly."
"One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching."
"No matter how bad it gets, always keep running..."
While touring with MSI, Gerard met a wonderful lady with the name of Lindsey Ballato. They married September 3, 2007.
Gerard went on winning many awards for his music and his comic books including an Eisner Award for his "Umbrella Academy" series.
Despite many awards given, My Chemical Romance broke up March 22, 2013.
From career dropouts, speaking against society, amd breaking up the band of millions, Gerard Way is without a doubt a true risk taker.
