Former Guns N' Roses star Duff McKagan has officially joined Jane's Addiction - new photos of the bassist in the studio with his new bandmates have been posted online. Guitarist Dave Navarro has posted a snapshot of McKagan alongside Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell and drummer Stephen Perkins on his Twitter.com blog.
Duff McKagan was linked to the band following original bassist Eric Avery's decision to quit the group earlier this year.
Eric Avery announced his exit from Jane's Addiction on Twitter, writing "That's it. With equal parts regret and relief, the Jane's Addiction experiment is at an end." Later on, Dave Navarro confirmed it on his own page, "Yes, Eric Avery has left the band. More to come but we wish him all the best!"
