Bob Bryar was born December 31st, 1979, in Chicago, Illinois. He is the only member of My Chemical Romance who is not from New Jersey. He attended school at Eisenhower Junior High in Darien, Illinois. Bob once played drums and symphonic in a jazz band.
Bob replaced Matt Pelissier
He replaced Matt Pelissier in 2004. There is not toco much information on Matt, and My Chemical Romance doesn't talk much about him because they "don't like to talk shit", but it seems that Matt was kicked out of the band because he kept messing up onstage, plus no one was happy playing shows together anymore.
My Chemical Romance
Bob was once a front of house sound technician for The Used, and met My Chemical Romance while on tour with The Used. My Chemical Romance had trouble with their old drummer, so it was a given they needed a new one. That's when Bob here comes in. He's helped My Chemical Romance out a lot and is one of the best new drummers going today. With his own style, Bryar is now a permanent drummer of My Chemical Romance. He has earned the respect of his fellow band mates by being a dedicated and hard worker. Frank Iero (rhythm guitar) was once quoted,
"Bob and Toro are the two hardest working people I've ever met, and if there is a God, I thank him everyday for bringing us Bob." Every show that Bob has played with My Chemical Romance, Gerard has been sober.
There have always been disagreements between Bob and people who try to take his picture. He dislikes being photographed or filmed, and prefers to be the one behind the camera. Bob is known to either walk in the other direction if he sees a camera, hit the camera, or curse repeatedly at the person who is trying to take the picture/film him.
Favorite bands, injuries
Bob is a fan of Black Sabbath and thinks England is cold. He has his ears gauged at 24, and next time you see him, make sure to gaze into those baby blues of his. Bob is a cat person. Unfortunately, he has gotten hurt. Some are minor injuries and other... not so minor. He was once pushed out of a bus, as well as receiving a busted nose from a bar fight with security tough guy. He has had is heart broken (long story), and well, as for the brain damage. He refuses to comment.
"I get these urges to fuck off sometimes."
"People think that moose are really gentle and goofy but they aren't; they're fucking animals."
