As Theprp.com revealed yesterday, My Chemical Romance have fired their touring drummer Michael Pedicone (ex-The Bled) for theft. Speaking on that, band guitarist Frank Iero offered the following:

“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.

XOMCR”

Meanwhile, Pedicone himself has addressed the situation via Twitter, offering:

“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. It was an error in judgement based on a whole other situation that’s way deeper but this does not define me.”



Your on a big name band thats been doing huge tours and yet you have to steal! :D:D

I hope this means they drop off the blink tour and get someone else!

I doubt it. They will more than likely just use someone else they had with them.

When they did the Chicago date for the blink tour they were really good. alot better then when I saw them in April.

That sucks. I'm sure they will be alright and continue the tour. They outplayed Blink at my show, they have put on a great show all 3 times I've seen them.

Oh the possibilities. Let me think here... Sum 41, Simple Plan, All American Rejects, Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Sugarcult?

Would you like death by execution, electric chair or lethal injection? :cool:

Right b/c he had your back in the deathcore countdown didn't he? I wanted to add New Found Glory but I think I remember him saying he liked them so I didn't want to encourage him. LOL

I like Sum 41 for one album, Chuck. Everything else sucks.

My iPod is somewhat incriminating. I've got way worse on their than Sum 41. I can't hate.

This round goes to you. Although I'd still enjoy Cypress Hill.

I'm hoping they say what he was stealing.

But on Sum 41: I saw them play in June of this year and they were okay. Not terrible but not amazing.

I would like to know too, but I doubt they'll say. Probably personal and they don't sound like the want to talk/think about it any further based on the initial post.
