My Chemical Romance Fires Drummer for Stealing

My Chemical Romance has parted ways with drummer Michael Pedicone after an incident in which the band accused him of stealing from them.  The band posted the following announcement on its website:  "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."


The band didn't elaborate on the incident or say what was stolen, but Pedicone issued the following statement on 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 was replaced for My Chemical Romance's Saturday show by Dead Country drummer Jarrod Alexander.  No word yet on who will pound the skins for the band on upcoming shows.
