i agree it is too early for courtship, but if i am not mistaken Bandit is older than a year, she would have been fourteen months yesterday.

Yes but she's still a year old... fourteen months isn't that far from 12 months.

Who are these people?

WBR has even said to expect it in the fall, idg why people are like: "omg august". there hasn't even been a release date announced yet, normally they give a month or two in advance, if not more.

i could be wrong about the last part, lmao. but the trend i see is more than a month or two.


Ya I thought it was dumb too, everyone seems to have an unrealistic idea of how long it takes to make a record. August is much too soon. I was just wondering where these rumors come from. Anyway, at comic con gerard said he was just now doing sketches of album art ideas. You can watch that on SDCC Spotlight on Gerard & Gabriel Ba Part 2 on youtube.

Now, rumor: Some kid on DeviantArt said he met Bob at Bamboozle and Bob said that he quit the band because he "couldn't deal with divas anymore," referring to the band.

Hmm, well I can see how that's possible. They have had success and sometimes fame does that to people. I wouldn't argue with that if it were true. I mean, I don't know them, so I can't really say whether they're like that or not.

I said this on Mibba as well and I think that if Bob did say that then, knowing Bob, he could also easily have been joking and, knowing MCR fans, the people who heard it could easily have over-reacted/taken it too seriously.

Well, yeah, that's true... but I would believe it if it turned out to be true. I mean, I love MCR and junk, but if they turned out to be like that it wouldn't surprise me.

I agree with you. It's normal to become a "diva" when you are super rich and super famous,you have a lot of people that work for you,you have thousands of kids that love you and your songs.
I think it's normal to change a little.
But I don't see anyone in the band doing what they're doing for the money or for the fame.
We will see what the new record sounds like.
I think and I hope the boys are staying pure and honest as they were back in the days.
And if I'm not wrong,in an interview Gerard said the new record will be about working class heroes...

I know I don't see them becoming that either, and I don't want them to be.
I just know that there's probably more going on with them than they're letting on, I think.
But they've never really lied about anything, so there's not much of a reason to all of a sudden no longer trust them.

Ya I think it's totally possible, but I also think they're kind of aware of themselves. In one article, which I could link later if ya'll want, gerard admitted to "pandering" on the last record and "making safe choices" because the money started to affect him and put him in a coasting position

Oh yeah, I remember that now. Well, as long as they're honest about it, I'm alright with it. No one likes being lied to.

Maybe Bob said that, maybe he didn't. But I trust Bob.
I trust that Bob wouldn't become a douche overnight. Sure, maybe they are "divas" and over dramatic, but even if they were, I highly doubt Bob would really say something agressive like that. Bobs a cool guy, he's calm and doesn't let stuff really get to him. MCR is Bob's best friends. He wouldn't just "drop them", which is what basically you guys are saying. Bob left most likely for health reasons and/or creative differences, if you remember also, in the limited edition The Black Parade booklet, Bob mentions about how he finds the guys way more talented than him,a nd whenever someone else made a mistake, he'd blame himself for it. He cares about the boys, he's not gonna leave them and then just wander around saying shit for our delight.

People do leave for creative differences, I know its "hard to believe" becuase everytime a band sights that, people automatically think their lying. But, I find it hard to believe that you can "trust" a band about everything else they say and then let the important stuff become lies.

But seriously people, you trust Bob don't you? Then, Er go, wouldn't you trust that he wouldn't be spreading smack about his best friends?

ok so you believe that Bob wouldn't turn into a douche overnight - fair enough.

The fandom has no idea why Bob is no longer in the band - for all any of us know he was trying it on with Alicia, Mikey found out and they had a punch up.
For all any of us know the rumour about him saying at bamboozle that he was sick of divas is true and if it is true how does it make him a douche for telling the truth?

Now regardless of if Bob said that or not he is just human, like the rest of the band, all celebs etc for that matter and they do say and do things that upset people!

I don't think that if Bob did indeed say that he'd be a "douche". It honestly wouldn't surprise me if they became "divas", and isn't it true Brian was talking about how management had become a thank you-less job (not in those exact words, but it was something along those lines; at least how i took it...) or something like that on Twitter? It honestly wouldn't surprise me at all... it kinda fits if you really think about it, like it or not.

'Is over being a pillar and really over people leaning on said pillar'

'well I worked really hard for a really long time. It's a thankless job. If you really want it, find agreat band and chase it'

Saying that doesn't necessarily make Bob a douche. He expressed an opinion, and if that's the reason why he quit - fair enough. We don't know that happened - Bob could be the "good guy" while the rest of them are douche bags.
People change. I'm convinced that the fame has changed all of them somehow - I think fame changes everyone more or less, and sometimes for the worse. Maybe they changed in different directions, musically and/or personally. It doesn't mean that they have suddenly all turned into divas or douches, they have just changed.

I'm not calling Bob a douche. I'm just saying that what he said, when you break it down to words and letters, is a very agressive statement.

That is all. Besides, I was ~enraged this morning. XD Didn't mean to come off as so offensive.

But, I meant that his words were really agressive. Not saying that he is a douche and should ~go die.

it's not very aggressive, imo. I fail to see how "i couldn't deal with divas" translates to aggressive...
