"When 'Grease' came out I was like, 'Oh, c'mon, give me a break,'" Slash, who's currently touring with Ozzy Osbourne, said. "Actually, I look at 'Grease' now and think (that) between 'High School Musical' and 'Glee,' 'Grease' was a brilliant work of art."
Guns N' Roses are one of just a handful of high-profile musical acts to decline the invitation. Coldplay and Kings of Leon have passed on the show, but given that Glee becomes more of a cultural juggernaut every week, both have been rumored to be reconsidering the offer.
