Dave Navarro Has Health Scare, Photographed In Wheelchair


Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro posted on his Instagram account, “An actual real moment, that may have to end up being an album cover someday! (And I’m FINE PS).”

Navarro also hinted that he is working on a new musical project sharing a new studio photo. He wrote on Instagram, “Spent the week working on a new project.” Navarro has not released new original music since Jane’s Addiction’s 2011 album The Great Escape Artist.

His lone solo album is 2001’s Trust No One. In the 2010’s Navarro has focused on hosting Inkmaster on Spike TV/Paramount Network, and on touring with Jane’s Addiction and playing the band’s greatest hits. He also performs with the covers band Royal Machines and hosts the podcast Dark Matter.

On a recent episode of Dark Matter, Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro announced that his bandmate Perry Farrell will be releasing a new solo album featuring The Cars guitarist Elliot Easton.

David Bowie producer Tony Visonti recently revealed that he is producing Farrell’s album.

“I’ve produced an album for Perry Farrell, which will come out in 2018,” Visconti said speaking from his New York home in a recent Irish Times interview. “He is a very talented and smart man. I love his music.”

Farrell has teased that he has been collaborating with his former Porno for Pyros bandmate Peter DiStefano in recent months on Twitter, so DiStefano is likely another musician participating in the project.

Jane’s Addiction and its two most high profile members, Perry Farrell and Dave Navarro, have not been very prolific musically in the 2010’s. The band last released The Great Escape Artist in 2011, with Farrell and Navarro not releasing any albums or EP’s in the last 7 and a half years. Jane’s Addiction have toured playing their greatest hits off and on during this time period. Perry Farrell has teased an immersive theater project called Kind Heaven for the last 5 years, but it has yet to materialize.

Farrell released his first solo album Song Yet To Be Sung in 2001, and released another album called Ultra Payloaded in 2007 under the name Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party in 2007.
