Fall Out Boy Biography
The four members of Chicago's Fall Out Boy came together in suburban Wilmette around 2000. Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Peter Wentz, drummer Andrew Hurley, and guitarist Joseph Trohman have all been in and out of a variety of units connected to Chicago's underground hardcore scene. They debuted in 2001 with a self released album, following it up in May 2002 with a split LP on Uprising that also featured Project Rocket. The band had an upheaval when Wentz overdosed on a sedative in a suicide attempt. He told Rolling Stone that he felt like he was Peter Wentz for everyone else and not for himself. The song 7 Minutes of Heaven is based on his suicide attempt.
