Michael Todd, the bass player for Coheed and Cambria probably isn’t cut out for a life of crime.
Yesterday afternoon in Attleboro, Mass., Todd walked into a Walgreen’s and showed the pharmacist a message on his cell phone in which he claimed to have a bomb.
Hard to say what part of this caper is more unbelievable: that it worked (Todd took off with six bottles of the addictive painkiller Oxycontin) or that the musician then jumped into a waiting cab and sped to the Comcast Center in nearby Mansfield where his band was opening last night for Soundgarden.
Todd was arrested backstage before the show. Coheed and Cambria, a high concept hard rock band played the gig without him. (See the group in a live performance earlier this year, below)
