There are, literally, thousands of My Chem interviews on YouTube. Go and have a search (and beware the Frerard videos)… Here are some of my favourites:
- The Grammy Museum
- Gerard and Mikey on Absolute Radio
- Frank in Australia
- Any of Taste iT TV interviews
- Spin Magazine
- My Chem vs. The Box
- Dawn of the Dead Mic
- Ray talking about everything
- Anything that was on Fuse TV
There are millions more and as soon as I hit the publish button I’ll remember them. So do what I did in summer 2009 and spend your sick days on the Interwebz having a laugh at the Revenge haircuts.
Interviews are how the fans get to know the people in their favourite bands… They’re the best way to decide whether or not the dudes onstage are jerks or not. MCR aren’t jerks, but they are quite mad occasionally. Before I realised the enormity of the task, I set about sticking some videos into playlists on my YouTube channel. If you have any additions, link them in the comments section. Apologies for the crappy design, I haven’t gotten around to making it pretty.
Alternatively, you can Google Search/News interviews and have a laugh at magazine-English, which is different to English-English in every way because you’re never entirely sure what the hell the interviewer’s going on about and it’s easy to misinterpret what the guys say as well… The best bit is picturing whoever’s talking’s face in your head.
Have fun Interwebzing (that is definitely a word, by the way) and don’t forget to watch the interviews as well as reading the stupidly entertaining comments!
