September 7, 2010 10:46 AM ET

Jane's Addiction and Duff McKagan have parted ways, just five months after the band recruited the former Guns N' Roses bassist to record their new album. "We wanted to thank Duff for helping us write songs for our new record," Jane's Addiction said in a statement. "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." Perry Farrell also posted this on Twitter: "Jane's wishes Duff much luck with his band Loaded. What a fun time we all had working together." Jane's Addiction, who are scheduled to perform October 17th at a Tony Hawk benefit concert in Los Angeles, have not announced a replacement.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
