Coheed And Cambria Bassist Arrested For Armed Robbery

http://consequenceofsound.net/2011/0...armed-robbery/

Band's Official Statement:

Quote:
Michael Todd was arrested today on what we consider very serious charges and therefore he will not be finishing up the current tour. Wes Styles, long time member of the Coheed family will take on bass duties starting tomorrow for the remaining dates. No shows will be canceled.

We are surprised to say the least and will address the situation with Michael after the tour. For now, we just want to have a great time out here and finish with some killer shows in Boston, Poughkeepsie, Quebec City and Halifax.
Woah...

Wow, that sucks. Not real familiar with their material, but hell of a position the other members are in now.

Why would someone who's in a pretty successful rock band need to rob somebody? You'd think they do pretty well for themselves.

The link pretty much describes it.

He went to a pharmacy saying he had a bomb and he would detonate it if he couldn't get Oxycontin.

C&C has had a history of drug problems.

I would imagine that the band will tell him he cant continue with them, but also try and support him if they can outside of the band.

Half of the band's original lineup did heroin for years, he quit and rejoined within a year where the drummer was replaced. Clearly he relapsed.




funny thing is this resulted in arguing with an ex about whether most of the band's original lineup was intact

I just saw this on the news. It's pretty sad though, that he chose to do this.

well soon to be 2 former band members may not be all for the band. But still, One is more then enough members to have drug problems, let alone 2.

Also everything Steev said.
