Duff McKagan Leaves Jane's Addiction After 6 Months


After six months in Jane’s Addiction, Duff McKagan is calling it quits.

ABC News reports that musical differences have forced the former Guns ‘N Roses bassist to part ways with his latest group.

The band issued an e-mail statement to fans, saying, “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.”

McKagan replaced former bassist Eric Avery in March. He is yet to comment on his departure, but on Sunday frontman Perry Farrell tweeted, “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.”
