My Chemical Romance and Bob Bryar have parted ways.

3 03 2010

From their official website:

Hello Friends,

Recently it seems as though every time we write to you guys we have bad news, and we apologize for that, but we’ve learned in life you can’t have the sweet without the sour. As a band we have been very fortunate over the years that our sweet times have greatly outweighed the sour ones, and a great deal of that is owed to you, the fans. Which is why we wanted this news to come from us and not some bullshit gossip site.

As of 4 weeks ago, My Chemical Romance and Bob Bryar parted ways. This was a painful decision for all of us to make and was not taken lightly. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and expect you all to do the same.

We also wanted to give you all a quick heads up on how the record is progressing. We have been writing some very powerful new songs so this week the four of us entered the studio once again, and what has been ending up on tape each night is some of the most exciting and honest work we have ever created.

We hope this letter finds you well, we miss you…
talk to you soon,
xo MCR

Way to be an asshole, Manticore. Bob was a huge part of the band, so watch what you say and how quickly you judge people.

Oh, do cop on. Not funny and not true in the slightest. Just because you’re envious of their looks gives you no right to be a right little shit over the internet, you stupid, hideous fool!

Sad the news is fresh and the man has already been conveniently edited out of this photo. Makes spending the $65 to get the AP poster from the MCR store sort of a bummer now…

I am still in shock. It’s like the Used and Brian. You guys are losing who you are, your becoming mainstream bs and I can’t believe you would let your foundations fall apart. I can’t even pretend to like MCR because you’ll never be the same. Bob was an amazing human as well as being ridiculously talented, it’s your loss not his.

28 03 2011

How can you say that without even knowing the full story? And how are they becoming bs? They took a big chance taking such a dramatic leap with this new album. Apparently, you didn’t think about the who-knows-how-many fans they lost just because they changed how they presented their work and appearence.

29 09 2011

I completely agree with you Xander. Supposed “fans” of MCR insist that they’ve become this huge sell out. MCR themselves have stated that if their fans like their old stuff, that they should go back to listening to their first albums, but that they weren’t going back to that whole theme. A good fan supports an artist in any or most decisions they make. There’s a reason behind every single one of them. There had to be a good reason for Bob leaving and you have to be understanding of that. They are human, after all; not machines. Sanpanda over there isn’t a true fan. MCR isn’t a sell out. They’re tired of the same shit, and I don’t blame them. As much as I love TCFSR, DD:TTLOTFJ is just as good too. Just imagine you having to play a whole album day, after day, after day and all day. They wanted something fun, new, fresh, badass and with colour. They’re going in the right direction and Sadpanda’s just being quite selfish and needs to mature a bit more before understanding the relationship of people and music.

2 07 2011

Im appaled by what some people are saying without knowing the real story MCR will find away with out Bob even if it takes a while I will always like MCR theyve saved my life and others lives I wish Gerard,Mikey,Frank, and Ray luck and also wish Bob luck with what ever he is doing now

31 07 2011

They go through drummers quite quickly….I wish Mr. Bob Bryar the best of luck, whichever path he chooses, and that fans will still follow him til the end of the world – if they don’t, they’re quite clearly gouls.
