Gerard Way and His Wife Met during a Musical Tour
According to People, Gerard and his wife, Lindsey, met and bloomed their romance when they were touring with the singer’s rock band My Chemical Romance as part of Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution festival.
The singer also credited Linkin Park’s late musician Chester Bennington for bringing him close to his now-wife during the conversation with the mentioned tabloid.
“His band and bringing us on tour, that changed my life. I met my wife. We have an amazing life now and a daughter. My memories of that period and meeting Linds again are tied into Chester and his band,” he stated.
In a 2008 interview with Rolling Stone, the late Bennington also reflected on his role in bringing Gerard and Lindsey together.
He said that he felt proud that the couple “reignited their friendship” during the musical tour and eventually ended up getting married to each other.
“I was like, ‘This is freaking awesome,’” he added.
