6. James Dewees, touring keyboardist for My Chemical Romance

James Dewees is better known as the keyboardist for The Get Up Kids and the braintrust of Reggie & The Full Effect. Over the last few years, he has been My Chemical Romance's go-to keyboard player. It's a huge step down on the emo food chain, but it pays the bills and at least he gets to play "Helena" every night.
