GERARD WAY : MUY ORGULLOSO DE SUS ORIGENES
GERARD WAY LIDER DE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE HABLO CON NME, ANTES DE SU PRESENTACION EN ESCOCIA,
Frontman Gerard Way and his bass player brother Mikey are both half-Scottish, and before their show, Gerard told NME that he always feels a connection to Scotland whenever he is here. He said: "I think I always wear it on my sleeve when I'm there. I certainly feel Scottish and I’ve always felt really proud of that," before adding that he has always instinctively put salt on his porridge, a traditionally Scottish trait.
During MCR's set, they played 'Destroya' from their last album 'Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys' - pictured below - and dedicated it to Scottish comic book artist and friend of the band Grant Morrison and his wife Kristan.
Despite being booked as headliners forReading and Leeds next month, the band today played third from top on the bill behindFoo Fighters and Pulp. But the singer said he was nothing but "proud" to warm up for the returning British indie stars.
He explained the significance of his band covering their 'Common People' on Radio 1's Live Lounge. He said: "We did that cover with total respect for the original. It's a testament to Pulp's music the fact that song meant so much to me being a cartpusher in New Jersey with no future, all the way across the ocean. That meant hopefully as much to me as it did for everybody else. So I tried to go back to that place where I would push carts with no future when I was singing it.”
GERARD DIJO A NME,SOBRE LO ORGULLOSO QUE ESTA DE TENER RAICES ESCOCESAS, LAS MANIAS QUE TIENE COMO BUEN ESCOCES, Y LO SEGURO QUE SE SIENTE CUANDO ESTA AHI,
DURANTE SU CONCIERTO EN T in THE PARK JUSTO ANTES DE TOCAR "DESTROYA" GERARD DEDICO LA CANCION A UN BUEN AMIGO DE ELLOS , EL ARTISTA, GRANT MORRISON Y SU ESPOSA KRISTAN MORRISON.
GERARD TAMBIEN COMENTO SOBRE CALENTAR EL ESCENARIO PARA BANDAS COMO LOS FOO FIGHTERS Y LA BANDA BRITANICA PULP, , DIJO : NO HAY NADA QUE DE MAS ORGULLO QUE ABRIRLE A BANDAS COMO ESTAS EN LA ESECENA INDIE.
ASI MISMO EXPLICO SOBRE EL COVER QUE SU BANDA HIZO AL RESPECTO DE " COMMON PEOPLE" DE PULP..
" hicimos ese cover con un total respecto al original, es como un testamento a la musica de PULP, el hecho es que esa cancion significa mucho para mi, cuando me convertia en un caricaturista de new jersey, sin futuro al otro lado del oceano, significaba esperanzas, tanto para mi como para los demas, a si que trate de volver a ese lugar donde solia empujar carritos sin ningun futuro, y lo hacia cantando." FINALIZO.
