Why he might be annoying:

    He resembles Tom Araya from the thrash metal band Slayer. (Especially with that long frizzy hair).
    His trademark is his long, frizzy and curly hair, which he has said he doesn't mind people touching, though not pulling.
    Not only is he an guitarist, but he also serves as a backing vocalist for the band My Chemical Romance.
    Sometimes he wears coke bottle glasses. (Now that's very punk, hmmm?)
    He is known as the least favorite member of MCR.
    He released a solo album in 2016 titled 'Remember the Laughter', and claimed it was his first solo studio album since the disbandment of My Chemical Romance. (But you ended up still going back to the band later on anyways though, hmmm?)
    He owns both a terrier and a saltwater crocodile.
    He has a fear of spiders and tarantulas.
    He has a tattoo on his arm that says 'SL', an abbreviation of 'stage left', which was always his position at My Chemical Romance concerts.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He is of Puerto Rican, Spanish and Portuguese heritage.
    He is My Chemical Romance's first and only Hispanic member.
    He was credited of meeting Gerard Way first in the late 1990s, then Gerard's brother Mikey Way also joined forces with him too, later on forming My Chemical Romance.

    He has been compared to Queen's guitarist Brian May, and has long cited May as a key influence on his guitar style.
    He is the only member of My Chem who doesn't dress up gothic.
    By the time he entered high school, he had become interested in music. He enrolled in guitar lessons, as well as typing lessons to improve his manual dexterity.
    As a teenager, he has cited heavy metal guitarist Randy Rhoads and hard rock musician Brian May as his two biggest guitar influences.
    He is also a songwriter, and has written most of My Chemical Romance's material.
