"My Chemical Romance" is in the market for a new drummer -- the band just fired their percussionist for allegedly JACKING THEIR STUFF.

Moments after the band officially 86'd Michael Pedicone -- they offered an explanation on their website, saying, "He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show [Thursday] night in Auburn, Washington."

MCR added -- "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."

As for Michael -- he doesn't deny having some issues with his former band mates -- posting on his Twitter, "What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you."

This dude doesn't get it, "...more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake". I love how "mistake" has slipped into the celebrity lexicon for issuing "apologies." A "mistake" infers an unintended act-planned theft is not mistake but misdeed. I'm sure there's a long convoluted story where he raises as the victim of a "misunderstanding".

Stealing from bandmates is like stealing from your family. They should have given him the "soapbar in a sock" treatment.

I would have fired him for that mustache. This band seems to be going thru drummers like Spinal Tap.

It's so stupid when people comment "never heard of him or this band" or anything along those lines. If you have never heard, then why are you reading this? You are dumb.

Stealing is not complicated loser. Some people steal just because of their overinflated sense of entitlement. Obviously you thought you weren't getting enough of something, attention, money, I dunno..brains maybe? So you stole from them. Glad you got caught.
