Bob Bryar is best known as the former drummer of American alternative rock band My Chemical Romance, one of the core three bands constituting Bandom canon. He joined the band in 2004, having been introduced by their then manager Brian Schechter, who knew him in his capacity as a sound technician for peripheral bandom band The Used, which Schechter also managed.
He parted ways with the band in 2010, before touring for fourth album Danger Days began, under still-unknown circumstances. His relationship with the band subsequent to his departure has been fraught. He has since returned to relative anonymity.
