Slash scuppers ‘Glee’ Guns N’ Roses song appearance

Guitarist says the show is 'worse than 'Grease''

Slash has revealed that he has snubbed a request from the makers of Glee to feature a Guns N’ Roses song in the show.

The band join the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings Of Leon, who have also turned down the chance to have their music used on the series.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Slash responded to a question about whether he’d like to hear one of Guns N’ Roses’ songs on Glee by saying: “Actually, we got asked about that once already, but it got turned down.”

He added that he tries “to be more optimistic than negative [about current entertainment] because it’s really easy to get negative about it, but I draw the line at Glee. Glee is worse than Grease and Grease is bad enough”.

Slash, who now plays in Velvet Revolver as well as having a solo career, said that his band are likely to resolve their issue of not currently having a frontman “one way or another in the coming weeks”.
