Trust No One is the debut solo album by Jane's Addiction and former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro, released on June 19, 2001 on Capitol.

In 2009, Navarro stated: "I did a solo record [Trust No One] where I did everything and toured, and as great as an experience as that was, it’s not what I want to do full time. It’s a mind fuck. I don’t dig it. It’s something I do once in a while and I certainly intend to do it again, but I’m much better suited to be part of an ensemble."[4]

Background and release[edit]

Originally, Navarro had recorded an album in 1998, under the moniker "Spread".[5] After finding out the name was copyrighted by another band, he decided to release it under his own name, playing the majority of instruments in the recording process.

The style and theme of the album are very dark, revolving around the events taking place within Navarro's life at the time. Many songs talk about the growing loneliness in the rock star's lifestyle and the messy divorce he had experienced.[citation needed]

Drummer Matt Chamberlain, plays on most songs except "Venus in Furs" played by Roy Mayorga of Stone Sour and some parts of "Sunny Day".[citation needed]

The opening track, "Rexall" was album's first single, which included a music video directed by Honey.[6] It was named after a drugstore in Los Angeles where his parents met.[5] This was followed by a second single and video, "Hungry", which starred Carmen Electra and was directed by Chris Robinson.[7] Both tracks found moderate success upon release; however, the video for "Rexall" was pulled from airplay after the September 11 attacks, due to depictions of towers falling in a city.[citation needed]
