Slash's mother dies

Slash's mother, Ola Hudson

Slash's mother, Ola Hudson has passed away Friday, June 5 after a battle with lung cancer. Ola Hudson is an African American women and worked as a costume designer for many other actors and musicians like David Bowie "Man Who Fell to Earth" getup, John Lennon and Diana Ross.

Slash the former guitarist for Guns N Roses and the current Velvet Revolvers was raised in the city of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, until the age of 11, when his parents relocated the family to Los Angeles, California. His parents separated and he lived primarily with his mother, Ola Hudson. "My mom tried to keep me in school, but I quit in eleventh grade and soon after was living with the Guns N' Roses guys," he says. Still his mom supported his musical ambitions.

Ola Hudson once said "When Guns N' Roses started playing, we'd have to sneak Slash into clubs because he was underage". "One time they were playing the Troubadour in L.A., and we dressed him up as a woman to get him in." When asked to be photographed with his parents, Slash choose a now- vacant lot in West Hollywood, where the family shared a one bedroom apartment in 1975."It was the happiest place we ever lived," says Tony, Slash's father. "There was lots of love around." "We made the closet my bed-room," says Slash.

Big sincere condolences for Slash, his mother probably not that old, cancer sucks. It must be a very hard moment for Slash who is in a middle of completing his new album and yet has to loss his precious person at the same time.
