In an interview with an Australian radio station, Slash revealed that his mother had an affair with a legendary rockstar.

"My mom started working professionally with David Bowie at first," said Slash, whose mom was a costume designer. "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."

The guitarist remembers seeing a lot of Bowie at the time – quite literally, on one occasion. "I caught them naked once," Slash said. "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."

Despite the potentially awkward encounter, Slash remembers Bowie fondly. "He was cool," the rocker said. "I liked David a lot."
