Behind the scenes photos of Gerard and Ray. Photographed by Justin Borucki.
“I was hired by Kerrang magazine to follow Gerard and Ray around and revisit the making of their latest album (I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love). We visited a hospital, the bar where they played their first gig, their childhood homes (Ray’s childhood bedroom is pictured), their practice space, and a diner that they ate at a lot when making the album. Most of these images were never run or seen by the public.
Check out the image of Gerard looking at some album art… He was showing it to me, because he wanted me to recreate the sketches for Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge. I suggested that he should do the album art instead, because the drawings were awesome. Later, Warner Brothers actually suggested the same, and they ended up using the sketch that he’s holding in his hand.”
