toro is pretty good, i think hes trying a little too hard to totally rip off queen but thats just me. skill wise he is definately better than most in that whole scene tho, at least he can solo to save his life.

Being in that kind of band means they don't get much room to show what they can do. Therefore, undecided.

Ray Toro is the only member of that band who i respect as a musician. He's very talented which is more than i can say of anyone else in MCR. just my opinion of course...

You know, I hate those two, although the lead guitarist has more talent than he shows, I'll admit that. I don't 'tink' they're great (you Irish?)

toro rocks, the only good one in the band. he just needs more room to show what he can do. the band is simply ruined by the singer though

They're pretty good for what they are. Their bassist is bad though, and Gerard isn't a very good singer...

I don't think about them, they're just guitarists in a band as far as i'm concerned.

Ray Toro is just blatant rip off of Brian May and more often than not can't play his own solos live/avoids playing them live.

Frank Iero is pretty horrible.

The bassist and drummer are average at best. They get the job done but never do anything revolutionary/different/pleasant.

Gerard is the most horrible singer ever found on thie dirt ball. He ****in sucks and should be used as a cadaver coz he is so bony. I thought the singers from Panic At The Disco and Fallout Boy were horrible then i heard that awful racket and i almost puked.

All in all, they have very little if anything going for them. TS is a blind idiot for following them.

ray is so much better than frank, but frank has more ability to "show off" (i dont know if you would call THAT an ability) that he can at least hold a guitar.

and its also cause all the girls want to marry iero. no one wants to marry ray. his hair is awesome tho haha.

Frank is a pretty average guitarist, but he's clearly mastered the art of looking cool while playing.

Ray is just... it's a shame he has to be in a band so widely hated as MCR. I, for one am going to be keeping an eye on whatever band he ends up in if MCR ever dissolves. (also, I appreciate the whole Brian May thing he's has going on lately, seeing as how I love Brian May)

they're probably a lot better than they show, because they are playing pretty simple music.

I can never hear Frank. When I listen to MCR, I only hear 1 guitar. I usally can never hear the bass either.

Gerard isn't a great singer but a great frontman.

Toro rocks but Iero isn't near his level. I watched them play DEAD! live for something and I guess Toro was going to let Iero play the solo at the beginning of the song. The solo doesn't happen and you can tell Iero was getting some strange looks form the band.

But if you can't sing whats the point of being in a band? He didn't seem like that much of a great frontman on live videos i've seen on Tv. He seems extremely morbid and can't perform his own material nor motivate a crowd. That's just my two cents
