    Former Guns N' Roses and current Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan revealed the real reason he split with alterna-lords Jane's Addiction after a brief stint as their bass player. In his Seattle Weekly column, the bass player said that his former Jane's Addiction bandmates are "great and gentle men" and that there were a myriad of reasons that he quit, among them the desire to work on his band Loaded; to write his book; to develop a new business; and to find a replacement for Scott Weiland in his "other" band, Velvet Revolver.

    So all the press reports that suspected some sort of drama as the reason for McKagan's split from Jane's were wrong!

    Who should sing for Velvet Revolver? Do you wish that McKagan stayed with Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and the rest of Jane's Addiction?
