Last year, Dave Navarro participated in a PSA to combat domestic violence. Following his appearance, the former Jane’s Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist opened up about the death of his mother, Connie. In 1983, when Navarro was 15 years old, his aunt and mother were murdered by her ex-boyfriend, John Riccardi, who wasn’t caught and convicted until 1991. Navarro attributes a good deal of his emotional distress and drug abuse to this traumatic life event, which he speaks about at length in the trailer for the documentary he co-produced about the murders. Mourning Son was directed by Todd Newman and is due out in December. Watch a trailer for the film below.
Mourning Son is out 12/1.
