Five years since the official separation of one of rock and roll’s most famous couples, Julien’s Auctions has announced Property from the Collection of Slash and Perla Hudson as part of their two day MUSIC ICONS auction taking place on Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th, with historical items by other music legends live the Hard Rock Cafe New York and online at www.JuliensLive.com. The world record breaking auction house that has specialized in some of the most headline making rock and roll artist auctions in the past fifteen years will present for the first time in Julien’s history, this exclusive celebrity “uncoupling auction” featuring some of the most personal and unique items from the magnificent Beverly Hills estate that Perla Hudson and legendary Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash shared during their fourteen year marriage as well as memorabilia and ephemera related to Slash’s career, style and showmanship as one of the most revered and powerful musicians ever to be inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Youth Emerging Stronger (YES) whose programs provide safety, stability and housing to runaway, homeless and foster youth. Slash’s guitar riffs and solos in the band’s most classic hit songs including “Sweet Child o’Mine,” “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Paradise City” shaped the sound and fury of GNR and his later work with bands such as Velvet Revolver garnered Slash critical acclaim, ranking on Time and Rolling Stone’s top lists as one of the greatest electric guitarists of all time among many other honors.

In 1992 Perla Hudson met Slash backstage at a Guns N’ Roses concert in Las Vegas. During their 17-year marriage, the couple amassed a collection of personal and unique items, which are now going on sale to cement the end of their relationship, having officially separated five years ago. Amongst many lots, the auction will include Perla Hudson’s wedding veil (complete with sequin top hat, of course), various awards trophies, a plaque from the Hollywood Walk of Fame and memorabilia and ephemera related to Slash’s career.
