After Robbing a Walgreens, Coheed and Cambria’s Bassist Is Out of the Band

Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd, who held up an Attleboro, Massachusetts, Walgreens last month for Oxycontin, has been kicked out of the group. A statement reads: "After a lot of thought, introspection and discussion, Coheed and Cambria will be continuing our journey without bassist Michael Todd. 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." Fairly predictable, although it would have been nice if the band had figured out a way to work it out despite the incident. Vulture, for one, believes there are mitigating circumstances here — have you ever had to kill an afternoon in sleepy Attleboro, Massachusetts? [Official site via Billboard]
