An off-hand remark during a phone conversation to promote his new solo album with an Australian radio station has Slash feeling regrets about having brought it up. His original comment was construed as a young Slash having interrupted an intimate occasion between his mother and David Bowie. In expressing his regrets over the stir his remark triggered, Slash phrased it as having'...walked into the bedroom when they weren't fully dressed', and adds, '...I had no idea it was going to get blown up. It became this big headline and it was very awkward. I'm embarrassed because I'm sure David didn't appreciate it. An my mum, rest in peace, probably wouldn't have dug it either.'
