The star, who replaced co-founder Eric Avery following his departure in March, parted ways from the band because musically they were all headed in different directions.

Former star Duff McKagan has quit after just five months and three shows. McKagan stepped in to replace co-founder Eric Avery following his departure from the band in March and he hit the studio with new bandmates Perry Farrell, guitarist and drummer Stephen Perkins to record fresh material for the reunited rockers' first album in seven years.

But the musical union didn't work out and the band has confirmed that McKagan is no longer part of their line-up. A statement from Farrell, Navarro and Perkins reads, "We wanted to thank Duff for helping us write songs for our new record. 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."

And frontman Farrell has proved there's no hard feelings regarding the bassist's exit. Taking to his Twitter blog, he writes, "Jane's wishes Duff much luck with his band Loaded. What a fun time we all had working together. Look out for his record and tour this fall."
