My Chemical Romance Lose Drummer
2011-09-03 by arsonist88 | 64 Comments

My Chemical Romance have posted on their website that drummer Mike Pedicone, replacement of Bob Bryar and former drummer of The Bled has left the band. Guitarist Frank Iero writes:

Hello all,

Some shit happened last night and before the blogosphere gets all crazy with false statements and ridiculous opinions we want the true story to come from us... But please listen close because this is the only time we are ever going to talk about this. The relationship between My Chemical Romance and Michael Pedicone is over. He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington. We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation. The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives. The people who play in this band are a family, and family should not take advantage of each other like he did. We are currently moving forward, and hope to have a new drummer in place for our show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show must go on.

This makes me appreciate Coheed's situation and dealings anymore. Todd basically put the band's reputation at stake and they say nothing bad about him and "wish him the best". Sad that this happened, but no need to talk bad about the guy.

I haven't enjoyed any of their work since Three Cheers so I don't really care that they lost a member. That being said, what a prick.

Irrelevant comment #1: Their old (now old old) drummer looks like my cousin.
Irrelevant comment #2: The XOMCR thing is hilarious.

"What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you." No confirmation on this yet, but our suspicion is that this is all part of a bid to form an all-felon supergroup with recently-exiled Coheed and Cambria bassist Mike Todd.
