My heart was beating so fast, I thought it was going to explode! The only thing that was separating Gerard Way, Mikey Way, Frank Iero and Ray Toro from me, was an ugly, plastic curtain.
I remember the security guard motioning us to come in because it was our turn. I walked through the curtain and the thought running through my mind was that there was no way this was real!! As I walked a few steps farther, I saw the beautiful, fiery, red hair -- it was Gerard Way. Then I knew it was real, and my inspiring idol was only a few feet away.
