My Chemical Romance fired their drummer, Michael Pedicone, in 2011. Why? He was “caught red-handed stealing from the band” after a show. The band was playing in Auburn, Washington when the theft occurred.
Though it’s not known what was stolen, or any other details, in statement back when the incident happened, MCR stated, “The people who play in this band are a family, and family should not take advantage of each other like he did.” The band also stated on their site that Pedicone confessed to local police.
Crazy as it is, it’s more than understandable why the guys from MCR said so long to their drummer.
2. Liking The Beatles (Too Much)
Apparently there is such a thing as liking The Beatles too much. Back in 1977, the Sex Pistols allegedly fired their bassist, Glen Matlock because of his persistent love for fellow Brits, The Beatles.
The pistols’ manager Malcolm McLaren once told a reporter, Derek Johnson, that Matlock was kicked out of the band because “he went on too long about Paul McCartney.” However, Matlock said in autobiography that there’s no truth to what McLaren told that reporter.
The explanation is far simpler, according to him, he was merely, “sick of the b@*)#&!t.” Who knows what really happened? The thing we do know is that we all love us some Paul and The Beatles.
