 Fuente: Rolling Stone MX

Duff McKagan, ex bajista de Guns n Roses, quien fuera contratado por Jane’s Addiction este año para sustituir al bajista Eric Avery, abandonó al grupo a tan sólo cinco meses de estar en él.

La banda envió un comunicado de prensa declarando: “Queremos agradecerle a Duff por habernos ayudado a escribir las canciones para nuestro disco nuevo”, “Nos encantan las canciones que trabajamos con él -y los conciertos fueron increíbles- pero musicalmente hablando vamos hacia direcciones diferentes. De ahora en adelante Duff trabajará por su cuenta y le deseamos lo mejor”.

Actualmente Jane’s Addiction no tiene fechas programadas pero tienen un DVD nuevo con la actuación que dieron en el Voodoo Festival del año pasado
