Michael Pedicone, a new drummer that the rock/pop band My Chemical Romance had recently hired (March 2010) was caught stealing on Thursday from the band and therefore fired.
My Chem’s guitarist Frank Iero made a statement about the disaster,
“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.”
Apparently My Chemical Romance have a bucket of drummers in waiting, to pluck at whenever their hearts desire because they’ve already replaced Pedicone (formerly of The Bled) with Jarrod Alexander from Death By Stereo.
Personally, I don’t think anyone gives two craps whether Animal from Sesame Street or a street performer OR Jarrod Alexander drums for the band. People just want to see Gerald Way’s little Billy-Corgan-with-hair face.
Here’s what Michael wrote on is Twitter after he was caught “red-handed,”
[I still really wish I knew what exactly he stole. Maybe an envelope full of money? He probably thought he deserved it for some reason]
