Is Slash Jewish ?

To be more exact,  Slash's mother, Ola Hudson, 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

Contrary to several reports, Slash's mother was not Nigerian, nor is his father Jewish. Of his mixed background, Slash later was quoted as saying: "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."

According to some reports, Slash's father is listed as Jewish. Even if that is true, Slash is not considered Jewish because you can be Jewish by being born Jewish and practicing Judaism or by converting to Judaism. Also, anyone born to a Jewish woman is presumed to be Jewish, but only in the sense that a person with a Jewish mother does not have to convert to Judaism; he or she can just decide to be Jewish by practicing Judaism.

The truth is that many websites list Slash as half-Jewish

It has to be mentioned that when his wife Perla was asked if Slash is Jewish, she answered: "No"

Conclusion: Slash is not Jewish.
