Camp Freddy , the star-studded cover band whose lineup includes Jane’s Addiction ’s Dave Navarro and Chris Chaney , former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum , and former A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese , has called it quits.

Navarro revealed the sad news on his Facebook page , but also shared some good news, noting the band would continue under the new moniker Royal Machines . He writes, “After 10 years, we are retiring Camp Freddy and beginning our next incarnation -- ROYAL MACHINES -- follow @RoyalMachines14 on Twitter -- more to come.”

Royal Machines posted the lineup for their new group on their Facebook page on Friday, and it appears everyone from Camp Freddy is sticking around except for Sorum. In addition to Navarro, Chaney and Freese, the lineup includes ex-Camp Freddy members singer Donovan Leitch , former The Cult bassist Billy Morrison , and longtime collaborator Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray .
