My Chemical Romance’s Mikey Way Talks About ‘Sad’ Band Breakup
By Scott T. Sterling
My Chemical Romance fans around the world were crushed when news of the band’s break-up hit the internet in March 2013. According to bassist Mikey Way, after MCR broke up he and his bandmates were not okay (they promise).
“I was going through it and it was sad, like the passing of a family member,” Way told Kerrang (via NME). “But over time I got great joy and pleasure from reflecting. I was able to truly put on some songs and be like, ‘Wow, we really did something. We cracked the heavens.’”
Way added, “With MCR we were so busy, I was never able to stop and smell the roses, or evaluate myself completely. That’s what the past year was all about. I was able to dig deep inside myself and become the man I always wanted to be.”
