Who is Dave Navarro?

Born David Michael Navarro on the 7th June 1967, in Santa Monica, California USA, he is a prominent multi-talented artist, a guitarist, vocalist, actor and television host, but best known to the world as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Jane’s Addiction, one of the original members of the critically acclaimed rock band. In addition to Jane’s Addiction, Navarro has worked with several bands, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others.

What Is Dave Navarro Doing Now?

In recent years, Dave has been focused on his television career, and can be seen on Spike’s show “Ink Masters”, in which professional tattoo artists compete for a cash prize and a tattoo studio. Dave, a tattoo lover and expert himself, serves as the judge in the popular show. He also appeared in the comedy series “Odd Mom Out” as himself, in 2018.

Dave Navarro Wiki: Early Life, Relationship with Mother and Father

Dave, of part-Mexican ancestry, is the son of James Raul Navarro, and Constance Colleen Hopkins – his grandparents from father’s side were Mexican immigrants. Dave went to Notre Dame High School, located in Sherman Oaks, California, during which time he was a part of the marching band, alongside his future colleague in Jane’s Addiction, Stephen Perkins.

When Dave was only seven years old, his parents divorced, and he would spend time with both of them, eventually more so with his mother in Bel-Air. However, Dave was struck by a family tragedy on the 3rd March 1983, when his mother was shot dead by one of her ex-boyfriends, John Riccardi, who wasn’t identified as the murderer until the early ‘90s, when  thanks to a tip-off he was brought to justice. Unfortunately, the struggling teen Dave succumbed to drug abuse, as he couldn’t cope with the loss of his mother; on the tragic night Dave had planned to stay with his mother, but at the last minute decided to spend the night at his father’s place.

Career Beginnings

Dave was interested in music from an early age, as he started learning how to play guitar at the tender age of seven, after he heard Jimi Hendrix. Gradually he improved his skills, and right after high school started pursuing a career as a guitarist. Thanks to his friendship with Stephen Purkins, the drummer of Jane’s Addiction, he was invited to audition, and became a part of the alternative rock band in 1986.

Rise to Prominence

Before the end of the ‘80s, the band became extremely successful, releasing the platinum album “Nothing’s Shocking” (1988), and continued with the “Ritual de lo habitual” in 1990, which achieved double platinum status. The band broke up due to internal disagreements in 1991, but has reunited several times since then, with a few changes in line-up, though Dave has been a part of every re-incarnation. The band released two more albums – “Strays” in 2002, and “The Great Escape Artist” in 2011. The band has currently been active since 2008, with Perry Farrell as the singer, Perkins on drums, and Chris Chaney on bass. Some of the former band members were Eric Avery, Flea from RHCP, then Martyn LeNoble, and Duff McKagan.

Other Projects and Contribution

When Jane’s Addiction dissolved in the early ‘90s, Dave formed the band Deconstruction, with Avery on bass and vocals and Michael Murphy as drummer. The band released a self-titled studio album in 1994, then fell apart. Concurrently, Dave joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and made his first live appearance at Woodstock in 1994, but remained for only one album “One Hot Minute”, released in 1995, after several setbacks and delays; soon afterwards John Frusciante returned, and Dave was out of the band. Since then, Dave has collaborated with a number of musicians, including the bands Nine Inch Nails and Guns N’ Roses, Alanis Morissette, Marilyn Manson and Christina Aguilera.

Dave also formed the band The Panic Channel, which was active from 2004 until 2007, with Stephen Perkins, and Chris Chaney.

Solo Career

Dave has also worked on his own; his debut studio album came out in 1995, entitled “Rhimorse”, while his second studio album was released six years later – “Trust No One”, recorded completely on his own, playing all the instruments, and when on tour has performed songs from the album.

Television Career

In recent years, Dave has been more focused on a television career than on music; since 2012 he has been the judge in the show “Ink Masters” on Spike, but before that hosted several other shows, primarily “Rock Star: Inxs” (2005) “Rock Star: Supernova” in 2006,“Spread TV” (2007-2008), among many more.

Adult Film Director

Dave is also an accomplished adult film director; back in 2007 he collaborated with Teravision and served as director of the adult film “Broken”, which had Sasha Grey as its star, and won Best High-End All-Sex Release in 2008 at the 2008 AVN Awards. This was his only effort in the adult film industry.

1Tattoos all over his body.
2Psychedelic guitar solos.
3Frequently wears a fedora.
4Often plays shirtless.
5PRS guitars


1Yeah, I can read music and I know the names of chords.
2I've always recorded the same way. I put down as many ideas as I have, then strip them away at the mixdown. It's better to have too much music than not enough.
3I've done a lot of talk shows where you can tell that the host is just thinking about what he wants to say next while you're answering him and that's really uncomfortable.
4I'm not the type of player to sit home and practice scales and work on runs.
5I'm thrilled I have the opportunity to do the 'Spread' show and have the terrific sponsors that we work with like Nikon or Verizon.
6Jane's Addiction has only put out new music when our hearts were in and when we had something to say creatively.
7Men are much more aggressive with their advances.
8So as long as I can do the music or create, I'll feel fine.
9For me, it doesn't matter how difficult something is, it doesn't matter how impressive it is, it's what sounds best that really counts.
10Guitar playing is just something that came to me and is really second nature now.
11I wish I was a shredder that could play everything, but I don't have the patience.
12I'm as obsessive with health as I was with destruction.
13I'm either shooting nine grams of coke a day or spending two hours at the gym. There's no middle ground.
14There have been times when I felt suicidal and I would stop my head from going in that direction of negativity because I thought there'd be something I'd miss that was funny in the future. If there's a chance I'm going to laugh tomorrow then want to live to experience that.
15It's impossible to compare two bands. It would be like comparing two lovers.
16And I've also come to the conclusion that, as far as guitar solos and things like that are concerned, it's more important to complement the music rather than take away from it.
17I have never been sexually aroused by a man. But I have yet to kiss Johnny Depp, so you never know.
18As a viewer of television if there's something I don't like or find offensive, I just don't watch it.
