has been showing a lot of face since the September release of his debut solo album, Hesitant Alien
. Way has a new look now that he's on his own. The hair is less red, as if you're looking at him through the distorted color of an old glass screened TV, and he's a got a snappy new blue suit that we haven't seen him without since the landing of Hesitant Alien
, and the premiere of his extraterrestrial public access music video
for "No Shows".
"No Shows" made it's cable TV debut last night when Way, his red hair, his blue suit, and his band performed on Conan. It was ... fine. Seriously, Gerard Way did just fine. His guitar player, however, cut it the fuck up. Way's music has grown up a lot since the emo heyday of My Chemical Romance, and he wrote the song that stole the show last night, he just wasn't the thief.
