Statement from FrankHello all,

Some shit happened last night and before the blogosphere gets all crazy with false statements and ridiculous opinions we want the true story to come from us... But please listen close because this is the only time we are ever going to talk about this. 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.

MCR want nothing to with a guy who seems all apologetic and is saying stuff like "they were quick to judge" etc etc etc...I'd at least let the guy explain to them. If they're "family" they should at least let him explain why he was doing what they think he was doing.

There is no acceptable explanation for stealing.

He still stole from them. You can't explain to the police why you stole something and expect no repercussions.

That may be the case, but If they're family, then they should at least ask him why he did it.

You don't know that they didn't ask him why. Frank posted just the facts of the situation because the band will not want to talk about it in future. I'm sure they did ask him why, but like a few people have said, there is no excuse for stealing from family.

He could have been asked, and he could have fully explained himself. Doesn't matter, he was stealing from them and deserves to be kicked out.

this idea of 'family' really is terribly stupid.
you really need to be 14 years old to read into that at all.
the debate and discussion would be a lot more interesting if that wasn't the operative point.
business is business. dont get caught with your hand in the cookie jar.
