RIP Jeff Conaway

Actor Jeff Conaway, best known for his role as Bobby in the long-running TV show Taxi and for his role as Kenickie in the musical film Grease, passed away on Friday May 27, 2011, at the age of 60 from complications due to drug and alcohol abuse. A sad and senseless end for a very talented person. RIP, Jeff. May you find peace in the afterlife that you could not find while on Earth.

Slash Refuses to Allow Guns N’ Roses Music to be used on Glee

From Rollingstone.com

Slash has told Entertainment Weekly that he rejected a request from the producers of Glee to use Guns N’ Roses music in an episode of the series. His reasoning was pretty simple: He thinks the hit show is horrible. “Glee is worse than Grease and Grease is bad enough,” he told EW. “I look at Grease now and think, ‘Between High School Musical and Glee, Grease was a work of art.'” So Slash is definitely not a fan of squeaky-clean singing teens. I’ve been a huge fan of Slash up until this moment and now…I just love him even more. Go Slash.
