Yes, as others have state JN left the band because he wasn't really happy with the bands more pop sound. He was also very displeased with their manager at the time.

JN and KM are two different players with different styles, which I think most already agree with. Both made their mark sound-wise on the band, PIP being my favorite Europe album. The one component that has nothing to do with their sound is that Joey Tempest and JN were really good friends since their teen age years where the dynamic between Joey and Kee was totally different. Supposedly, Joey wanted Kee to sound more like Norum at times, and stuff like that. Ultimately, a combination of grunge and tensions in the band lead to their breakup after PIP.

Ultimately when they wanted to reunite, I am sure even if there was a chance with both guitarists, Joey sided with JN on the 1 guitarist concept, and they moved on with JN because of chemistry. Since, Kee's also written a book in Sweden where he goes after the guys in Europe quite a bit and throws out various accusations, so I am sure there is some bad blood between the two camps. If nothing else, because of the bands resurgence, it makes Kee seem a bit like a sore loser for not being involved.
