RIP Ola Hudson

In sad news, Ola Hudson, mother of famed Guns N Roses guitarist, Slash aka Anthony Hudson, has died recently. Ola was a famed costume designer who worked with David Bowie, John Lennon and Ringo Star way back when. And from the images I found of her online, she was an original Parlourista. From Reuters:

“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 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.”

Look at that Dewars Ad – can we say WOW? RIP Ola!

    HA! I was at the Brooklyn Museum in January on one of the 1st Friday night events and there was an exhibit dedicated to influential black people and there was a photo of Slash. Before then I had no idea he was mixed though! I kept asking everyone around me if they knew, and I wasn’t the only one in the dark.
