Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has revealed that he once discovered his mother naked with David Bowie.

The legendary axeman, who released his second solo album 'Apocalyptic Love' in May, revealed to Australian radio station Triple M that he walked in on his costume-designer mother Ola Hudson and the glam rock icon in the nude together when he was just eight years old.

Ola, who passed away in 2009, worked with Bowie in the mid-1970s and designed his outfits during his period with his 'Thin White Duke' persona, which included the album 'Station To Station' and the film The Man Who Fell To Earth.

Speaking about this, Slash said: "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 continued: "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."

I'll have to watch the Criterion DVD, they filmed a lot of the movie in New Mexico.

Bowie must've been as busy with the women as he was with his music career. I think there were 3 or 4 that wrote books when he was in the Thin White Duke phase. Plus that incident with Axl going off on Bowie because he thought he was flirting with Erin, even though David and Ola were hanging out at a GNR show? Slash should've brought that up in the interview.
