Jane's Bassist Eric Avery Quits Band

Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery has quit the band. Avery made the announcement over Twitter a couple days ago, saying, "thats it. with equal parts regret and relief, the janes addiction experiment is at an end."

Jane's Addiction originally broke up in 1991 and reunited in 2003 with Avery being the only member not to rejoin the band for several reunion tours or the 2003 album Strays. Avery did however come back to Jane's in 2008.

There is no confirmation on who will replace Avery, but several sources are reporting that former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan might fill the spot.
