Witnessing first-hand the horrors of the World Trade Center attacks, Gerard Way decided to form a band as a song writing outlet for his upset and anxiety. With a new sense of urgency, Way and his fellow band mates wished to seize life while they had the chance. Their resulting debut album was recorded only three months after the 9-11 attacks. Three albums later and with several major tours behind them, My Chemical Romance finds itself weighing its next move and preparing to enter the recording studio again. This book captures the band in all its nervous energy and creative ferment.
