Dave Navarro recently revealed a tattoo for Taylor Hawkins and the former band that they were apart of titled, NHC. The letters in the band name stand for Navarro, Hawkins, and Chaney (Chris). The outfit made very few songs and many fans wish that more songs were able to be made.
Dave revealed the tattoo on his Instagram where he stated that he would be grieving the loss of Taylor Hawkins for a long time.
Not only has Dave been in bands with Taylor Hawkins, but he also took the spot of John Frusciante for the album ‘One Hot Minute’. During a 2002 interview with Rolling Stone, Kiedis stated that he could get used to Frusciante’s leaving if he wasn’t constantly reminded of his absence. Seeing Navarro or hearing someone call ‘One Hot Minute’ their favorite record would trigger the frontman as he’d remember Frusciante’s departure.
The vocalist noted that this album was recorded during a ‘troubled time‘ for him, as he was suffering from personal problems and trying to figure out how they could continue without John.
Anthony Kiedis said the following when asked about John Frusciante’s leaving the band: “I could forget that he had ever been gone. But, I mean, I get reminded of it all the time. I’ll run into Dave Navarro out in front of a restaurant, or some kooky kid will come up to me on the streets of San Francisco and say, ‘Oh, I love ‘One Hot Minute.’ That was my favorite.’ And I’m like, ‘Really?’”
Kiedis added when asked if the album was his favorite: “‘One Hot Minute?’ It was a troubled time for me.“
Following Dave Navarro’s departure, John Frusciante reunited with the band. He contributed to the band’s improving style by becoming a part of the 1999 album ‘Californication.’ The album was their most significant commercial success selling more than 16 million copies internationally.
