News Flash: My Chemical Romance Lose (Another) Drummer

My Chemical Romance drummer Mike Pedicone has been fired from the band for stealing.

Here is guitarist Frank Iero’s official statement from the band’s website:

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.


Unfortunately, it seems that My Chem’s drummer curse continues, and I hate to see someone take advantage of such a gracious and well-meaning group of musicians. Here’s hoping they can get back on their feet as soon as possible!
