Ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers and current Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro has shared new photos of Courtney Love attending his pool party on Instagram. View the photos below.
Dave Navarro discussed mental health issues in a recent Yahoo interview.
It’s a cause that’s extremely important to Navarro, who tells Yahoo Entertainment, “As someone who suffers from mental health issues, suicide has been a viable option in my past,” and notes, “We have lost a lot of friends this year, due to mental health issues.”
Navarro is referring to, among far too many others, Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, who both died by suicide last year. “I don’t have any insight as to what their mental health issues were or weren’t, so I don’t want to lump them in that category. … I’m not a doctor. I can’t sit here and say what they did and didn’t have, and what caused them to do what they did,” he muses. “But I would say that going to Chris Cornell’s funeral and seeing Chester Bennington sing a beautiful song for his friend, and then [Chester] taking his life a month later, really had a massive impact on me. … I couldn’t help but be brought back to the times when I had felt that lonely, that desperate, that suicidal, and I just want to change the playing field [with Above Ground] and let people know that there are options out there. [Suicide] isn’t the final answer. It’s OK to reach out for help.”
