    Jane's Addiction and bassist Duff McKagan of Gun N' Roses/Velvet Revolver fame have split. McKagan was playing with the alt rock dynamos for about five months. McKagan, 46, performed a few shows with Jane's Addiction and even worked on new material for the alt rock band's first album in seven years, but musical differences were the reason that the band and the bassist severed ties already.

    "Hey we wanted to thank Duff for helping us write songs for our new record," the band said through an email statement. "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." That doesn't say too much, but I guess we'll have to take it.

    Jane's Addiction have endured five different bassists since their inception. No replacement has been announced yet.

    Who should be Jane's Addiction's next bassist?
