"We have decided to go our own separate ways!" Announced Gerard Way, the lead singer of the huge rock band My Chemical Romance. Talking to English based rock magazine Kerrang! He explained that My Chemical Romance were over just like that.
That was the worst day of my life. Sitting in the conference room listening to Gee saying that MCR were over, obviously I knew but hearing it just broke me apart. How did we end up like this? We were rock solid, the perfect team but we lost our spark. The music was gone. This was the best we had given and we had nothing left.
We left the room, all going our separate ways. That's it, we were officially over. I left in my black Mini Cooper, tears dripping down onto the steering wheel like a river. We never spoke to each other or saw each other again. I moved on with my life. I got married and had twins with my beautiful wife but everyday I still think of him. He is always in my thoughts.
Im a jobless loser, who has a wonderful home life but now un-employed. All I have ever known is music and playing in a band. I tried a solo career about a year ago but it flopped. Me without him just does not work. We fit together like a jigsaw.
10 years have now passed since we broke up. I haven't seen him or spoke to him in those 10 years. But that was until I saw him on the front of a magazine and I realised I needed to see him again. I brought the magazine, went to the local Starbucks ordered myself a coffee and chose myself a seat.
I started to read the magazine. It was an interview with him about the breakdown of My Chemical Romance also his upcoming solo career. According to this he was also married now with a little girl. She looks just like him in the photographs. Sounds like his life is going great. Doesn't seem like he is missing me at all.
Maybe this is the closure I need. I left the magazine on the table in Starbucks and departed, heading home to my beautiful wife and children. Tomorrow I am going to look for a proper job so I can support my wonderful Iero family.
