It’s Official: Duff McKagan Is The New Jane’s Addiction Bassist

Tonight on his Dark Matter show Dave Navarro confirmed what’s been the worst kept secret. Duff McKagan is now a member of Jane’s Addiction. Duff is taking over on bass for the recently departed Eric Avery.

I know it’s not news but I’d like to welcome Duff to the fold. I wish him every success as he and the band continue to work on new music. I’d also like to take a moment to wish Eric the best. I know there are fans out there that are bummed about Eric leaving but as I told Dave on his show I’m an optimist. The way things worked out we not only have new Jane’s music to look forward to but I imagine Eric will be putting out some new music as well.

I have no idea when it will happen but Dave usually puts a podcast of his Dark Matter show up on his site. So if you missed tonight’s show keep an eye out over at Dave’s site for the podcast.
