Guns n Roses Slam Glee
20 Jan 2011
The former band members of Guns n’ Roses have turned down a request for one of their songs being used in a future episode of American hit musical TV sitcom, Glee.
Ex-Guns n’ Roses axe-slinger, Slash, who’s iconic likeness is the being used on Guitar Hero 3, told Entertainment Weekly he would draw the line at Glee for his songs being associated with the TV phenomenon.
Slash doesn’t appear to be much of a musical fan. Comparing Glee to early 80’s musical hit, Grease, "Glee is worse than Grease and Grease is bad enough.” He says, “I look at Grease now and think, Between High School Musical and Glee, Grease was a work of art."
Protecting his work from being exploited and associated by certain brands, Slash gave his thumbs-up for former band mate, Axl Rose. "Axl has always in my mind been one of the best frontmen / lyricists in rock and roll, period." The original Guitar Hero goes on “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.”
The original Glee cast is set to pack their luggage and hit the road for 2 nights at the MEN Arena in Manchester (22nd & 23rd June) and an extended 7-nights residency at The O2 Arena London.
So, now that there won’t be a Guns n‘ Roses tune on Glee, how about AC/DC “Highway To Hell,” Led Zeppelin “Whole Lotta Love,” Kiss “I Was Made For Loving You” or Europe’s “The Final Countdown”?
Which heavy rock tune would you like to see being performed by the Glee High School cast?
