No GUNS N' ROSES SONGS On 'Glee,' Says SLASHJanuary 19, 2011
According to The Pulse Of Radio, VELVET REVOLVER and ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash told Entertainment Weekly he would not like to see the hit TV series "Glee" do a GUNS-themed episode or even have the cast perform one GUNS song. Slash explained, "We got asked about that once already but it got turned down. In the current climate of what's going on in entertainment these days, I try to be more optimistic than negative because it's really easy to get negative about it, but I draw the line at 'Glee'."
Slash added, "'Glee' is worse than 'Grease' and 'Grease' is bad enough . . . Actually, I look at 'Grease' now and think: Between 'High School Musical' and 'Glee', 'Grease' was a brilliant work of art."
Slash also said in the interview that he thought Axl Rose being voted greatest lead singer of all time was "pretty fucking cool," adding, "We may have had our differences and this and that and the other, but I will never undermine the fact that I thought GUNS N' ROSES, when it was originally together, was one of the best rock bands, and Axl has always in my mind been one of the best frontmen/lyricists in rock and roll, period."
Slash is currently touring behind his self-titled solo album as the opening act for Ozzy Osbourne. The tour pulls into Dallas on Thursday night (January 20).
The guitarist also said that a decision on VELVET REVOLVER's new vocalist will be coming in the next few weeks. The band has reportedly been working with one fairly well-known singer, but has yet to announce whether he will join the band.
