Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro was only 15 years old when his mother was brutally murdered in her apartment by her ex-boyfriend. The killer escaped, and for eight long years eluded capture. During those years, Dave Navarro couldn’t shake the pain of his mother’s death or the fear of knowing that the man responsible was at large. He became addicted to heroin. He nearly died when he OD’d in a London flat. And his addiction helped drive a rift in his band just as they were reaching a critical and commercial height. This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners, including descriptions of stalking and domestic violence.
