DAVE NAVARRO: Why I Didn't Join GUNS N' ROSES

Episode 325 of the "Talking Metal" podcast (web site) features an interview with JANE'S ADDICTION/ex-RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS guitarist Dave Navarro. During the chat Dave talked about his love for IRON MAIDEN and how their influence "helped shape the sound of JANE'S ADDICTION." He also revealed that he is currently in the studio with producer Rich Costey (MUSE, FRANZ FERDINAND) working on the new JANE'S ADDICTION album which will include songs co-written by ex-bassist Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES).

Regarding the rumor that he almost joined GUNS N' ROSES, Navarro stated, "When Izzy [Stradlin] left the band, Axl [Rose] called me to be a member of GUNS. There are a number of reasons that it didn't work out. If I could pick one, it would be my own heroin addiction. We have always had a great respect for one another."
