Slash Once Caught His Mom Naked With David Bowie

This explains a whole lot

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash may have revealed too much in a recent interview with Australian radio station Triple M. As NME reports, Slash told the interviewer that he once walked in on his mom, the late costume designer Ola Hudson, naked with David Bowie.

Apparently, the affair was the result of a professional relationship turned personal.

"My mum started working with David professionally at first,” Slash told Triple M. "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." 

And then it got much more serious.

"He was always over – they were always together," he added. "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."

The experience traumatized the young Slash, who then went on to live a very mild mannered life while working in a very conservative profession.

June 23: Jack White's Really Rooting for the Home Team

Were the Cubs down or something? Jack White was spotted at last night's baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres looking absolutely miserable. The Cubbies pulled out a 6-0 win over San Diego last night so the White Stripe ideally should have been enjoying himself in spite of the team's current 41-57 record.
