Slash just isn't a fan.
Though many aritsts are lining up around the block to get their music covered on the hit FOX T.V. show, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has revealed he and frontman Axl Rose were approached by the show's producers personally to get a song of theirs on Glee. The boys turned them down. Slash explains:
"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. Glee is worse than Grease and Grease is bad enough… When Grease came out, I was like, 'Oh c’mon, give me a break.' Actually, I look at Grease now and think, 'Between High School Musical and Glee, Grease was a brilliant work of art.'"
First of all, Grease was a brilliant work of art!
Second, yeah, the show's not for everybody. We could see how Slash could take issue with the music makers behind the show reworking his artistic expression to fit their own musical mold.
But in the end, he's the one who is missing out. Just ask any of the other artists the show has covered and they'll tell you - it's pretty sweet to watch your music rise in the charts right along side theirs.
To each their own!
