Coheed And Cambria Bassist Arrested Right Before Big Show

Bassist Arrested For Armed Robbery

And when we say right before a big show, we literally mean that.

Oh, and it was for armed robbery!

Michael Todd, who is the bassist for Coheed and Cambria, was arrested for allegedly holding up a Walgreens with the claim that he had a bomb:

According to police in Attleboro, MA, Todd showed a pharmacist a cell phone note that said he had a bomb and demanded Oxycontin. He made off with six bottles of pain pill and fled via taxi.

But police say he was spotted in the cab and police were able to track it via the dispatcher to the Comcast Center where Coheed and Cambria were set to open up for Soundgarden.

Beyond the obvious answer of "addiction," why would anyone do this when they're in a successful band? It's just throwing EVERYTHING you've worked for away, which doesn't make sense to us.

We wonder what Claudio and that awesome head of hair of his thinks about all of this personally, as the band has announced Todd has been kick off the tour and a replacement starts immediately!

No shows cancelled!

    His Mk Ultra created alter went haywire….welcome to a nation filled with programmed Pharma head zombies,

    That blows, but not really surprised. A few years ago him and the drummer quit pretty much out of nowhere. It seems to me that Michael Todd needs to get some help to appreciate how much Coheed has given him. On a side note, the silver lining is, it puts Coheed's name out there, and introduces them to a new world of people!

    This is my favourite band in the whole world. The dragonfly is tattooed on my foot. I'm so sad to hear this news. As Claudio has said once before. "He fell victim to the biggest cliché of rock and roll." I really hope he gets the help he needs.

    Sidenote: I completely agree with Sugarbabe2002. THE WORLD MUST HEAR THEIR MUSIC!!!

    He needs help. To go to that extreme tells you have bad it is for him. I wish him a life free of drugs. Good luck to him.
