Inspire U: The Podcast

Exactly what do you have to say for yourself, Michael?

On Sunday, we were VERY disappointed to hear that My Chemical Romance drummer Michael Pedicone was fired after he was caught stealing from the band following their Friday night show in Washington.

Now, the ex-drummer has opened up about stealing from the band, and he’s saying that it was the “poorest decision of [his] life.”

Here’s what Pedicone had to say about his EXTREMELY poor decision:

“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.”

More from Pedicone:

“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 honor and a dream come true to play with such a talented bunch of individuals.”

We appreciate your candidness, Michael, but what you did was still unbelievably irresponsible and inexcusable. Hopefully you’ll learn from your mistake and not make similar errors in judgment in the future.

What do U think about MCR’s ex-drummer’s words? Does he deserve forgiveness???
