"Stay beautiful, keep it ugly."
That was said by a man, and one of my personal heroes, Gerard Arthur Way. He was the front man of one of my favorite bands since 4th grade (I’m in 9th) and on March 22, 2013 the band retired. I’m going to make a big deal of this because the things that Gerard, Mikey, Frank, and Ray (the members of MCR) said, were inspirational in so many ways, which makes My Chemical Romance a very heroic band all around. From the speeches, to the songs (or the majority of them at least) they sang, they’ve inspired, saved, and entertained many people. They’re honestly wonderful people and I so wish I could have met them, and I still wish I’ll someday meet them, retired or not.
The Way brothers, Frankie, and Ray are 4 of my favorite people on this planet, while there are more, those 4 will always be up there.
Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing.We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being a part of the adventure.
