Slash explains David Bowie comments

In a recent interview with Sydney, Australia’s Triple M, Slash spoke candidly about his mother’s affair with David Bowie back in the day.

Ola Hudson, who passed away in 2009, was a costume designer whose clients included Bowie, John Lennon and Diana Ross.

“My mum started working professionally with David Bowie at first,” said Slash. “I'm pretty sure that's how it started and then it turned into some sort of mysterious romance that went on for a while after that.”

"He was always over and they were always together... I caught them naked once,” continued the guitarist. “They had a lot of stuff going on, but my perspective at eight was limited. Looking back on it I knew eaxctly what was going on," he laughed.

On Monday, during an interview with Bay Area rock station 107.7 The Bone, Slash felt the need to clarify his earlier remarks.

“That was a very casual conversation with somebody on the phone in Australia that I had no idea was gonna get blown up. It became this big headline, and it was very awkward,” said Slash. “I'm embarrassed 'cause I'm sure David didn't appreciate it. And my mom — rest in peace — probably wouldn't have dug it either. All it was, was they dated for a while, which is common knowledge, and all I said was there was one occasion where I happened to walk into the bedroom when they weren't fully dressed. That was it. It wasn't anything more lewd to that.”

Slash is currently on a fall tour of North America in support of his second solo album, “Apocalyptic Love.”
