MCR Sacks Drummer!
My Chemical Romance’s drummer Michael Pedicone has been fired after he was caught stealing from the group!
In a statement from the band’s guitarist Frank Iero, he says they found Pedicone doing the dirty on them while they were on their American tour.
"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.”
Iero then went on to say they would not be pressing charges,
"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."
No clues as to what he actually stole were revealed in the statement, but defending his actions Pedicone then took to Twitter.
"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."
Pedicone joined the alternative rock band at the end of 2010 replacing drummer Bob Bryar.
AltPress reports that the ‘Welcome To The Black Parade’ hitmakers found a temporary replacement in Dead Country drummer Jarrod Alexander, who performed with them for their latest show in Salt Lake City.
