Gerard Way (born April 9 1977) is the lead singer of the band My Chemical Romance, brother to bandmate Mikey Way(bass). He has recently recovered from an addiction to drugs and alcohol, being sober as of August 2004. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, with the dream of being a comic book artist, before forming My Chemical Romance in 2001. Way and his band released their first CD, "I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love" in 2002 and have released a CD titled "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" in June 2004. Way and his bandmates hope to start working on their third album late 2006.
They earned popularity with their hit single "I'm Not Okay (I promise)" and later with a tribute to his late grandmother Elena Lee Rush titled "Helena". Both songs from their CD "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge". Their next two singles, in which they hope to get videos for, are "You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison", with additional vocals of Bert McCracken from one of their "brother" bands The Used. Along with their tragic loss song "The Ghost of You".
Way is known to wear heavy eye shadow during his band's concerts, but can also be found with a thick black strip along his eyes.
