Coheed and Cambria Bassist

Axed from Band

Following Bizarre Arrest

Bassist Michael Todd is officially OUT of the rock band Coheed and Cambria ... just weeks after he was arrested for armed robbery -- but the band says the parting of ways was a "mutual decision."

The band released a statement saying, "After a lot of thought, introspection and discussion, Coheed and Cambria will be continuing our journey without bassist Michael Todd."

The statement continues, "We have spoken to him and this is a mutual decision between both parties. Michael was a great contributor; our hearts go out to his family and to all those who appreciate his talents. We wish him nothing but the very best."

As we previously reported, Todd was arrested last month in Massachusetts after police say he showed a note to a Walgreen's pharmacist saying he had a bomb ... and demanded OxyContin.

That guy will be remembered solely for that incident and not at all for his career.

Bassists are easily replaceable. Something aspiring bassists should consider before throwing it all away.

Doug, do we really need to hear about your fantasies? Keep them to yourself, as for Mic Todd, I can't say I am happy with the decision, to me it feels like my favorite band is slowly crumbling away. But it is for the best, Mic needs to get clean and being in a band would only make it that much harder.

addiction is a mofo. oxycontin is a drug that makes you feel like a million bucks until you dont have it, then you feel like a truck ran you over. beat adivce is to never mess with it even once. never heard of one person who didnt regret abusing those pills.it all starts off under control and then in no time your f*cked, spending all you funds and in some cases robbing walgreens with bombs for the high.

Oh, but he has a disease...How can they fire someone with a disease?

If he overdosed, everyone would pity him for his disease.
