Duff McKagan Leaves Jane's Addiction


Jane's Addiction
Five months after joining the band, bassist Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, Loaded) has left Jane's Addiction. A statement from the band reads:

"Hey we wanted to thank Duff for helping us write songs for our new record. We love the songs we worked on with him – and the gigs were a blast – but musically we were all headed in different directions. From here Duff is off to work on his own stuff so we wish him all the best.”

On his twitter account, frontman Perry Farrell said: "Jane’s wishes Duff much luck with his band Loaded. What a fun time we all had working together. Look out for his record and tour this fall."

McKagan had originally joined the band after the departure of original bassist Eric Avery in March. Avery had rejoined the band after a seventeen year absence. The band have not yet announced a replacement bassist.
