My Chemical Romance - Drummer Regrets 'Poor Decision' That Cost Him My Chemical Romance Job

Sacked My Chemical Romance drummer Michael Pedicone has broken his silence about his dismissal, revealing "the poorest decision" of his life led to his firing.
The shamed rocker was told he no longer had a role in the band last week (ends02Sep11) after he was allegedly caught stealing, and now Pedicone has released a statement to Kerrang! magazine shedding light on the incident.
He writes, "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.
"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."
The band announced Pedicone's dismissal on their website, stating, "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."
Pedicone adds, "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'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."
Dead Country star Jarrod Alexander has joined My Chemical Romance for the remainder of the band's Honda Civic Tour, alongside Blink-182.
