Last night, TMZ reported that Coheed and Cambria bassist Mic Todd was arrested for robbing a Walgreen's pharmacy in Attleboro, Massachussetts.

Apparently, Todd wrote out a note on his cell phone demanding oxycontin and threatening the store employee with an alleged bomb.

The best-slash-worst detail is that Todd was not only arrested because he jumped into a cab after committing the robbery, but the cab was delivering him to his gig opening for Soundgarden at the Comcast Center.

Crossfade has a lot of questions: Was the tour van unavailable as a getaway car? Do Coheed and Cambria fans stick around after the opening set for Soundgarden? Does Soundgarden like Coheed and Cambria? Or was this a management pairing? And, most importantly, couldn't Chris Cornell score this guy some oxy?

So sad. Mic Todd is a great bassist. It really hurts me that he is going through this. Get better Mic! Much Love.

You obviously did not do your homework or you would have stricken that closing comment.  Cornell has been clean for many years and actually works to help other addicts.  And, how pitiful to make light of a serious situation.  Your attempt at sarcasm failed miserably.

Chris Cornell is a legend and an award winning philanthropist. You are a joke who should be blogging for a high school newspaper somewhere in the sticks

That last line is totally uncalled for. Check your facts, Matt Priera. Asshat.

Matt, your last comment was totally unprofessional.  If it was meant to be humorous, it failed miserably!

Re: Chris Cornell comment, what a terrible thing to say. Did you come straight to this job from your high school paper? I'm sick of digs like this at Chris Cornell. Ignorant!!!

As a recipient of a MUSICCARES award for his work, Chris Cornell has the right to ask the writer, "what are you smoking?"

Almost amused until the last line. In bad taste for sure.

Your final line is in very bad taste, given that Chris Cornell's been clean and sober for nearly a decade and has worked with charities to help other recovering addicts in the years since then. Do your research, Matt Preira.

He can't just buy from someone else?  What a nut.
