Slash (musician) Family
Hudson was born in Hampstead, London. He was named after Saul Steinberg, an artist. His mother, Ola J. Hudson (née Oliver;1946–2009), was an African-American costume designer, whose clients included David Bowie; and his father, Anthony Hudson, is an English artist who created album covers for musicians such as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. Of his mixed background, Slash later remarked, “As a musician, I’ve always been amused that I’m both British and black; particularly because so many American musicians seem to aspire to be British while so many British musicians, in the ‘Sixties, in particular, went to such great pains to be black.
Slash (musician) Career
Slash joined his first band, Tidus Sloan, in 1981. In 1983, he formed the band Road Crew—named after the Motörhead song “(We Are) The Road Crew”—with his childhood friend Steven Adler, who by then had learned to play drums. He placed an advertisement in a newspaper looking for a bassist and received a response from Duff McKagan. They auditioned a number of singers, including one-time Black Flag vocalist Ron Reyes, and worked on material that included the main riff of what would become the Guns N’ Roses song “Rocket Queen.” Slash disbanded the group the following year due to them not being able to find a singer, as well as Adler’s lack of work ethic compared to himself and McKagan. He, along with Adler, then joined a local band known as Hollywood Rose, which featured singer Axl Rose and guitarist Izzy Stradlin. Following his time with Hollywood Rose, Slash played in a band called Black Sheep and unsuccessfully auditioned for Poison, a glam metal band that he would later openly deride.

Slash (musician) Guitarist
A fan ran into Slash on a plane down to South America. He posted the video of Slash with his girlfriend Meegan Hodges on social media. Check it out below!
The musician explained how he was invited to produce what became 2008’s “Chinese Democracy” back in February of 1997, saying (transcribed by UG):
“I went to LA and I spent a couple of days in the studio with Axl and whoever was in the band at that point.
“He played me some things and I couldn’t believe it. My life was odd at that point anyway – this was in ’97 – but I’m, like, in the studio, in Los Angeles, with Axl Rose, he’s asking me for my opinion on the things he’s playing.”
Focusing on the point that had severely damaged his relationship with the singer, Moby added:
“And I asked the question I’m never supposed to ask. I asked, ‘Oh, this is great, but where are the vocals?’. And everyone got very uncomfortable. They’ve been working on the record for six years and they hadn’t done any vocals.” Asked if the material he was presented with was the “industrial incarnation of the band,” Moby replied:
“Yeah, I think so. And then I just realized, like, ‘Look, I’m not a producer. I can make my own records, but I’ve never produced a rock band in my life.’
“And I just didn’t think that my first job as a rock producer should be producing Guns N’ Roses. So I had to excuse myself from being the producer of ‘Chinese Democracy.’”
“And then I made [the massively-successful 1999 album] ‘Play’ and Axl still hates me. He won’t talk to me. I don’t know why ’cause I actually found him to be kind of, like, an endearing, interesting character.
“Like, one of the things that made me sad about not producing ‘Chinese Democracy’ is that it meant the end of my weird friendship with Axl. Even now, I’ll see him out and he won’t talk to me.
“But everybody else in the band – not that they were involved [with ‘Chinese Democracy’], but Slash, Duff, Matt Sorum, and I saw Izzy the other night, and they’re all great. Humble, sober, wonderful human beings. I’m sure Axl is also wonderful, he just won’t talk to me.”
