David Michael "Dave" Navarro (born June 7, 1967) is an American guitarist who plays in the alternative rock band Jane's Addiction and cover band Camp Freddy. He has also played with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, and The Panic Channel.
After his parents divorced when he was seven, Dave moved with his mother to Bel Air, and lived with her until she was murdered in March 1983 by her boyfriend. Her murderer was eventually caught thanks to the help of "America's Most Wanted" (1988). While at a skating park, Dave heard a Jimi Hendrix song, and decided to become a professional guitar player. After stints in both Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers (during his time with the latter group, Dave caused a sensation when he smooched band mate Flea on the cover of "Guitar" magazine) and turning down offers to join Guns N' Roses, he started his own band, "Spread", and released a solo album, "Trust No One".
