10 things about Dave Navarro
Probably my favorite guitarist. Even though I don't know anything about music. Love his style and his demeanor.
1. Best known as the lead guitarist for Jane's Addiction
Probably my favorite band. Closest thing to Led Zeppelin(the best band ever) we'll ever get. Dave was 18 when Jane's got started.
2. Was the guitarist for Red Hot Chili Peppers - One Hot Minute - album
VERY underrated. I think Dave's guitar playing and RHCP's funky style mesh amazingly well. They only made one album, but I wish they made more music. Which brings me to .....
3. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Circle Of The Noose
Previously unreleased, this song would have come on the album after One Hot Minute. This is not a finished song, especially the vocals, but I love it and think it could have been a great hit for RHCP. However, Dave was kicked out of the band shortly after and would later reunite with Jane's.
4. Jimi Hendrix was an early inspiration for him
How good was Jimi!
5. Guns N' Roses wanted Dave to join the band!
"After the departure of Guns N' Roses' original rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin in August 1991, Navarro was the first choice of lead singer Axl Rose to replace Stradlin; despite four attempts to have him come in and play with Slash, he never showed up."
How cool would this have been?
6. Played with Alanis Morissette
7. Has been married 3 times and is currently engaged
4th time the charm?
8. Has battled drug addiction
This may not be a popular take, but I seem to notice that many of the great artists have abused, or at least used, drugs. This must take them to a dark place. Creatively, it may allow them to experience a broad spectrum of emotions. Who knows. But, it appears Dave is not addicted anymore.
9. He's in great shape
Always has been. Plays often with his shirt off. He's 55 and still looks fantastic.
