Okay so I've seen and heard a lot about Gerard and Bert, but what's the real story here. Are they still friends ?? If not.. what happened. I'm really confused, but that really is a part of being a MCR fan not ?? LOL I've read a few stories on the "subject" but they all say something different. So I need some hard core facts stories now....HELP

I don't have any inside scoop, but no, they are not friends.

The facts: They were inseparable for a while. They were close enough that Gerard's mother gave Bert a framed photo of him and Gerard for his birthday, and Gerard showed it off in an interview he and Bert did together. At some point after Gerard got sober, there was an Warped incident with Bert using a megaphone and trying to get people to not go to MCR's show. That was in 2004 (I think - possibly 2005?) but Bert is still bad-mouthing MCR's music in his shows. That's all the stuff that's totally public record. Anything else you read is speculation. Currently they are both refusing to talk about it.

My opinion: I think The Used's video for "The Worm and the Bird" tells the whole story, from Bert's POV anyway. And since Gerard got sober and Bert is still drinking like crazy, it makes total sense that Gerard would have to quit hanging around with him. Recovering addicts can't keep hanging around with other addicts. I don't think there's any big mystery about it.

Okay thanks for taking the time to clear this up for me. Of course it makes sense about staying away from addicts, when you're recovering yourself. I think you're right about that one.

I've never listen to "The Used", but seeing and hearing so much about those to guys and what they had together curiosity got the best of me :-)

I have The Used's latest album, and I LOVE it. I haven't heard their earlier stuff, though.

Hmmm yeah I must confess, that I went straight for the "proceed to checkout" button as soon as I heard that song. And yeah I'm easy...*sighs* I bought their latest along with the DVD.
