Birth Place?[edit]

Okay, Obviously at the top of the page, it says that Gerard Way was born in Newark, New Jersey.

But at his bio part, it says that he was in fact, born in Summit, New Jersey.

Does anybody else find this confusing?

I'm pretty sure Mikey was born in Summit, NJ.

Sorry if this confuses anybody else. I just thought i'd like to point that out.

FIX IT! Thanks.

nononononononono I believe they were born in Belleville, and grew up in Newark. Sorry for all the confusion, I also may not have it right. But i've never heard anything about it being summit *looks perplexed* —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.26.137.193 (talk) 23:32, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Why? ×××BrightBlackHeaven(talk)××× 22:02, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Gerard was briefly in a band called Ray Gun Jones with Ray Toro prior to MCR. They only played a few shows and never released anything so maybe this doesn't qualify as an associated act. Ray Gun Jones is however mentioned in the Career, Music section. Copaface182 (talk) 14:48, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

I think that there should be a more recent image of Gerard Way as he now has red hair.

I have clear pictures from the recent (last week) World Contamination tour (the Manchester date) that I'd be willing to lend to the article. I took the pictures myself so they are copyright free. Lemme know. EDIT: I put the current picture of Gerard up (kneeling down and singing in the Manchester Apollo gig October 2010. It's been there a while so I assume it's staying.

You mentioned a request in Kerrang!, but what exactly did that request say? Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:40, 10 February 2011 (UTC)
Gerard himself mentioned that the picture of him on Wikipedia is so old, and he wants a new one. "If someone could put a new picture of me on there, that would be great". I came on here to do that actually ;) --darksoulknight talkmail 16:31, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
Did he really? Where? What'd he say? And I totally agree, but you can't upload any random pictures up here. Your best bet is to search sites likes flickr or deviantart for photos that were uploaded by the same person who took the photo (and owns the rights for the photo), they're usually concert photos or from meet-and-greets or such, and ask them if they can give the picture a Creative Commons license so it'd be legal to upload here. --194.150.65.7 (talk) 16:43, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Relationship with Eliza Cuts[edit]

People need to stop adding Eliza Cuts into the Personal Life section. Despite popular belief that she and Gerard were in a relationship, there is no real evidence of this from either side that this is true. We know that Gerard was engaged but this was broken off before Projekt Revolution 2007 and before he began his relationship with LynZ of Mindless Self Indulgence (this Gerard explained in Projekt Rev interview at the time).

Existing interviews with Eliza Cuts have only ever been written interviews online which is extremely unreliable and various typings on websites and blogs which cannot be confirmed if they are even really her. Neither Gerard nor Eliza have ever physically mentioned eachother's name in visual interviews. In fact the only MCR band member to have mentioned Eliza was Mikey Way and he stated that she was simply a friend.

So until either side gives any kind of indication that they were once in a relationship, any mention of Eliza Cuts won't be put on Gerard's Wikipedia. It's not really an important piece of information anyway... Copaface182 (talk) 14:47, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Guest[edit]

Where in the world Gerard sings Head Automatica's 'Graduation Day' ??

I can't hear his voice and he isn't on the video-clip of the song.. ? 201.51.60.36 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:24, 26 July 2011 (UTC).

He's credited as a guest vocalist. He probably contributed to the backing vocals rather than having his own verse or something. And he wasn't in the video for the song eventhough there are pictures of him being present when the video was actually filmed. The only video he's actually been in when serving as backing or guest vocalist for a song was on Kyosuke Himuro's Safe & Sound video. But he definitely is involved in some way in the vocals of Graduation Day. This has been confirmed. Copaface182 (talk) 21:44, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Yes I saw Safe and Sound and also pictures of Gerard in the making of Head Automatica's clip. I just didn't understand. Thanks for making it clear. 201.51.85.62 (talk) 02:51, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Edit request from 24.61.196.25, 23 August 2011[edit]

{{edit semi-protected}} Please change the picture of Gerard Way to a different one because I read in Kerrang! magazine about My Chemical Romance. Gerard said it himself, asking someone to change the picture of him. I thought this one would suit: http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhgmviDAwA1qcbeduo1_500.jpg Thank you very much.

New picture?[edit]

So, it's 2012, and since the Big Day Out in Australia & New Zealand, Gerard dyed his hair (yes, again!!) to golden-blonde ish, so I thought maybe the picture could be updated? How about this- http://static.stuff.co.nz/1327040655/083/6291083.jpg

Also to prove this is updated and stuff on the official MCR website www.mychemicalromance.com there are a post from a few weeks ago featuring Gerard + Mikey and as you will see Gerard's hair is indeed blonde Thankyou ^_^ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.25.27.104 (talk) 18:11, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 28 May 2012[edit]

The picture of him needs to be changed because that is not his hair colour anymore as he has dyed it- it is now brown. :) Here are some images: http://mcrupdates.tumblr.com/

Edit request on 10 September 2012[edit]

Please change the listed origin on Gerard Way's Wikipedia page from "Belleville, New Jersey, emo mc emoville" to "Belleville, New Jersey" because "emo mc emoville" is not a real place (at least not that I am aware of, and even if it is, he is not from there), and it is also offensive. Also it is listed that he is also known as "emo", which I would like to see change also because it too is offensive, and he has never listed that as a name he goes by. Gerard even speaks against them being labeled a "emo" in one of his interviews (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1YnGl7GnYY). Thank you. BloodofSakura (talk) 03:03, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Can we add guitar under his instruments? Even though he doesn't plays it for My Chemical Romance it is known that if does (or did) play. Accroding to his "Career" section he did play but apparently wasn't very skilled at it. --144.131.70.162 (talk) 05:31, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Genre list[edit]

A new user just added shoegaze to the list of genres. I thought I'd bring this up here for anyone with more expertise to look into, as it seems the removal of this addition happened as a side-effect of cleaning up vandalism. Cheers, Samsara (FA  FP) 01:16, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Do you have any mention of the genre in an interview/review? His style does not fit within what most people would call Shoegaze (i.e. My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ride, Deafheaven, etc.). 108.252.208.178 (talk) 01:26, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

"The sound of it is rooted in a lot in shoegaze, also Britpop — the whole thing largely feels like a British album," he said. "I was going for a lot of things that were completely new to me. Even the way we attacked the vocals and tried to make them sound was very different from ways that I had ever been recorded."

Poem by Gerard Way Fandom[edit]

We slay We got no shame We have game If you don't like then you're lame Which is such a shame Your friends feel the same

Non-binary[edit]

he's stated that he doesnt identify fully as male/identifies partially with female/femininity? surely at least a mention of this should be added to the personal life section. [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.11.141.47 (talk) 18:09, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps a new picture?[edit]

Hiya, considering the photo is all the way from 2012, and Gerard has changed his appearance multiple times since then (especially his hair), I think that it's time for a new photo. How about a 'Hesitant Alien' photo? The blue suit and red tie? I'll attach a link to a photo I think is worthy enough to grace this article.

Writing[edit]

The section on his writing under "Other ventures" should include DC's Young Animal, the television section should include the Netflix Umbrella Academy series, and I feel that since he's pursuing writing as a career now instead of music the page should better reflect that.
