Way brothers reunite on stage

My Chemical Romance brothers Gerard and Mikey Way reunited on stage in Japan this week.

Bassist Mikey joined frontman Gerard’s solo band in Tokyo for a performance of Don’t Try, an unreleased track that was intended for Gerard’s solo debut Hesitant Alien.

The singer recently said MCR had become a “prison” before splitting in 2013, adding: “I’ve realised not everything needs to be complex. All I need is my family and the ability to make art.”

Mikey – who last year told how his friends had tricked him into rehab – is working with his new band Electric Century.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
