My Chemical Romance sack drummer
US emo-rockers My Chemical Romance have dramatically sacked their drummer Michael Pedicone after they allegedly discovered he had been stealing from the band.
The band revealed that Pedicone had been relieved of duties on the drums after wild rumours began circulating on social networking sites, which they referred to as "false statements" and "ridiculous opinions".
Writing on their website they said in the plainest terms the relationship between them and their drummer was over.
They said he had been caught "red handed" and had then confessed his actions to the police authorities in Washington.
"We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation," the statement from the band read.
"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."
They have temporarily recruited Jarrod Alexander, who usually plays drums for Dead Country.
