Slash's mum once dated rocker David Bowie.
Costume designer Ola Hudson, who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2009, was frequently hired to create looks for famous musicians, including John Lennon, Ringo Starr and the Ziggy Stardust hitmaker.
And now Slash has revealed his mother's professional relationship with Bowie turned romantic - and when he was a young boy, he walked in on the couple naked.
He tells Australian radio station Triple M, "My mum started working professionally with David Bowie at first. 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. I was seven or eight years old. (Bowie) was always over and they were always together.
"I caught them naked once. They had a lot of stuff going on, but my perspective at eight was limited. Looking back on it, I knew exactly what was going on."
