Fender bass guitar player Duff McKagan has left Jane's Addiction.

The rest of the band told fans they wish the star the best of luck in the future, reports the official Fender blog FrontRow.

"We love the songs we worked on with him - and the gigs were a blast - but musically we were headed in a different direction," said a Jane's Addiction statement.

The bass guitar player is now working on finishing his latest record with his other group Loaded, who have already put out two albums in the past.

Earlier this year, McKagan told Rolling Stone that he was struggling to adapt as a songwriter since joining Jane's Addiction.

He explained that he initially followed the verse-chorus-verse structure he had used when coming up with tracks for Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver but soon found many of his new group's songs do not contain a chorus.
