Sometimes when Rocks Off interviews this musician or that one, we'll ask them what they do to kill time on the road. Some of them read, others take in the local sights if they have time, obviously a lot of them listen to music. The answers are usually pretty mundane, so we don't ask the question much anymore.
|Coheed's Claudio Sanchez: Now auditioning bassists.|
Then again, we've never interviewed Coheed and Cambria bassist Michael Todd. Perhaps former bassist might be more appropriate. Either way, Rocks Off is pretty sure no one has ever answered "rob a pharmacy with a 'cell-phone bomb' and take a cab back to the arena, where the cops were waiting for me."
Evidently that's what happened Sunday, when Todd decided he really, really needed some OxyContin - six bottles' worth - before C&C opened for Soundgarden at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., about halfway between Boston and Providence, R.I. What happened next is something so smack-your-head stupid even Family Guy wouldn't touch it. (Maybe.)
