    OK i think i am misremembering that but from what a quick internet search tells me, basically he was let go for attitude issues and 'creative differences' around the danger days era. its the internet though so who really knows.

    Michael Pedicone, their touring drummer for the Danger Days era (and drummer of The Bled) is the one who was accused of stealing. There was a lot of drummer drama in the last few years before the band's hiatus.

    In the age of direct deposit, how the fuck can someone legitimately steal from a band as big as this? Was he taking petty cash? Was he snaking tips from the merch table? I’m sincerely baffled

    Michael Pedicone is a beast and I hope The Bled expand their shows after this fall. I'm curious to see how he's handling the Heat Fetish material.

    Wow, I had no idea The Bled were active again.

    When Riot Fest in Chicago was announced for September I saw their name on the listing and was caught off guard. I still follow some of the fellas on Instagram and they started being active again on there. I hope it goes well and something comes from it. Can't believe it's been 18 years since Pass The Flask...eff...

    IIRC, supposedly there was some sort of disagreement between Pedicone and a member of the MCR road crew. He tried to do something dumb to make the crew member look bad, but he was immediately called out for it and promptly booted from the band. I think I recall there being some form of a really vague statement made along the lines of “you don’t mess with our family.”

    Going to back Bob’s exit, man that felt so random at the time. You never know what’s going on behind closed doors, but it felt like overnight he was gone and talking a bunch of shit to Mikey on Twitter. Seemed pretty ugly.

    I thought Bob left because he had the tendon rip up his arm when he was playing or something?

    Yeah I remember something about Mike moving merch to make it seem like the merch guy lost it to make him look incompetent but they turned it into "Mike stole merch" and promptly gave the boot.
