"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 tells EW.com. "'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.'"

Kings of Leon and Coldplay previously turned down musical tributes on the show. Coldplay have since reconsidered their stance.
