The night continues at 7 pm ET, with iconic Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro in the acclaimed 2015 documentary Mourning Son, capturing his emotional quest for healing and closure as he recalls the night his mother was murdered and the impact that it had on his early life, throwing him into a deep web of depression and drugs. The block comes to a close at 9 pm ET with Green Day in the 2015 documentary Heart Like A Hand Grenade, taking viewers behind the scenes and into the studio during the making of the band’s landmark seventh album American Idiot, as they enter the studio to record and discuss the music that would ultimately cement their status as true punk royalty.
