Gerard's Way brother and MCR bassist, Mikey Way's net worth is estimated to be commendable one. As for his brother, Gerard Way's net worth is estimated at $20 million. He has managed to rake in this massive wealth from his career in a rock band groups and acting. Growing up, Michael worked in Barnes & Noble and later in Eyeball records, which played a significant role in the formation and naming of My Chemical Romance. It was Eyeball records that signed the band and released their debut record. And what happened after that is apparent. The reign of one of the pioneer rock emo bands of our era started with albums after albums.
Income from MCR
After improving his bass skills in less than a week, the band consisting of himself, Frank Iero, Gerard Way, James Dewees, and Ray Toro, was unstoppable. In 2004 MCR released their second album titled Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, which reached platinum in UK and US and gold record sales in New Zeland, Argentina, Chile, Ireland, Australia, and Canada. The group's third album, The Black Parade, broke records with five platinum certifications in the UK and US alone.
The album gathered more golds and platinum across the globe and earned a massive load of money. Then, their fourth and final album before the band broke apart, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys gathered four gold certifications across the globe.
