Slash has an interesting story to tell regarding his mother Ola Hudson and David Bowie. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist revealed to Australian radio station Triple M that he caught his mother naked with Bowie when he was just 8 years old.
Hudson and Bowie’s relationship dates back to the mid-1970s when she would design his outfits during his ‘Thin White Duke’ era. She passed away in 2009.
Slash’s comments about the whole romance reveal that he was a pretty smart kid, even thought he probably shouldn’t have known what was going on.
“My mum started working with David professionally at first. I'm pretty sure that’s how it started. Then it turned into some sort of mysterious romance that went on for a while after that. She did his wardrobe for his whole Thin White Duke period and The Man Who Fell To Earth movie that he did. She did all that and he was around for a while."
"He was always over – they were always together. I caught them naked once. They had a lot of stuff going on, but my perspective was limited. Looking back on it, I know exactly what was going on. When I look back on that whole combination of people, I can only imagine how freaky it was."
