David Michael 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 Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Panic Channel, and many others. Navarro was born in Santa Monica, California, to James Raul Navarro and Constance Colleen Hopkins. Dave spent a lot of time with his brother Joe Navarro, who currently resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Navarro's paternal grandparents were Mexican immigrants. His mother Constance worked as a model, appearing on the television show Let's Make a Deal. Navarro was the only person in his paternal family who did not speak Spanish. This was a result of James and Constance's divorce when Navarro was 7, and he spent the majority of his time with his mother. He attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA. He later transferred to University High School in Los Angeles, CA.
