Ex-My Chemical Romance Drummer Pathetically Attempts to Defend Himself

Michael Pedicone, My Chemical Romance's ex-drummer as of five days ago, told his side of the story to Kerrang! today. Pedicone was recently fired after he was caught stealing from the band.

"Almost as soon as I began touring with MCR I ran into problems with a member of the band's crew who I'll not name. The problems were many, big and small, but some of them were large enough that they began to greatly impact me and, by extension, my family. I'd reached my wits' end, and I made what was certainly the poorest decision of my life. Rather than address the issues that I had with the crew member in an open and honest manner, I tried to make them look irresponsible. My intention was to make this person look incompetent. I had no intention of profiting whatsoever. Again, I cannot overstate how poor my judgment was in this situation; it was a tremendous mistake, and it's one I'll regret for years to come.

"I would have liked an opportunity to share my side of the story with MCR, an opportunity to express my remorse. I was never given one.

"I'd like to thank MCR's members, crew, and supporters for giving me some of the best musical experiences of my life in the past several months. However brief our partnership, it was an honour and a dream come true to play with such a talented bunch of individuals. I wish MCR the best of luck in the future, and I'm looking forward to my next endeavour."

Well, why didn't he tell us this sooner?! His image is now officially squeaky clean in my book. Are there any bands out there that need a new drummer who will only steal if he is framing a crew member?
