Former My Chemical Romance drummer Bob Bryar has revealed he was suicidal after parting ways with the band in 2010.
Following the split, neither party offered a reason. A statement from the other members read: “This was a painful decision for all of us to make and was not taken lightly.” This week, Bryar tweeted: “It’s been about five years since I was kicked out of My Chem. I became the most depressed, angry, suicidal person ever.” A following tweet addressed three others, including former MCR touring guitarist Matt Cortez: “I have been wanting to try and play again. Let’s do this before I jump off a bridge. Last try for me.” Last month, frontman Gerard Way revealed the band had become a prison for him. He and his brother, bassist Mikey, reunited on stage in Japan last week. Meanwhile, guitarist Frank Iero will tour the UK in April.
