Well the sad thing is that they are around my age. Quite a few of my friends say they still know Gerard. Never really painted him as the underground enthusiast. More like one of those people that went to shows, hung around a bit, and would nod to the music a little, but never quite got the picture.
Yeah, unfortunatly I'm from the state that popped a majority of those bands out. All those bands are pretty much the same story as Gerard. Most of them are kids of rich yuppies that didn't fit in with the subculture. They basicaly blazed thier way into the music through thier parents money and connections. I'm sure you see plenty of that in Socal too.
