Michael Todd or Mic Todd (pronounced as "Mike") (born August 19, 1980) is the bassist for progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria. Todd left the band in August 2006 because of personal issues, but officially rejoined the group on April 25, 2007. Upon the time of his initial departure, he had been with the band for ten years. He was born in Woodstock, New York. When the band Shabűtie needed a new bass player to replace founding member Jon Carleo, drummer Nate Kelley suggested a former bandmate named Mic Todd. Originally a guitarist, he was asked to join the band to fill out their rhythm section. Picking up the bass solely for the new band, Todd became the band's steady bassist through their alt-rock days of Shabűtie into the band's transformation to progressive rock band Coheed and Cambria. At the beginning of the 2006 European Tour, Todd left the band due to a growing heroin addiction, and eventually checked into rehab.
