Former JANE'S ADDICTION Guitarist Reflects On His Life In New Book

Former JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist Dave Navarro's memoir, "Don't Try This At Home", comes out tomorrow. The book — which was written between 1998 and 1999 — chronicles the guitarist's battle with heroin addiction. ABC ePrep reports that Navarro prevented the book from publication for years because, as he told the New York Post, "It was just too close for me to deal with." He told the paper that there were a lot of things in the book that were difficult for him to look at. Says Navarro, "A lot of the stories aren't there to paint a glamorous sense of drugs or that lifestyle — they're there to illustrate how not fun it is."
