Ola Hudson, mother of Slash (Saul Hudson) has died at Saint John's Health Center in Los Angeles on Friday evening. She was 62. She is survived by another son, graphic artist Albion "Ash" Hudson, 38, as well as her ex-husband, English artist Anthony Hudson.
In a Twitter message late on Monday, Slash said he was back in the studio working on a solo project, "but I'm having a hard time concentrating."
His mother dated David Bowie after her marriage broke up in the mid-1970s. "I really didn't like him that much, because he was the new guy in the house," Slash said of Bowie in a 1990 interview with Rolling Stone magazine. "I was really resentful."
