If you have not heard it yet, there is a new band called Greta Van Fleet that is very reminiscent of Rock and Roll of the 60s and 70s.
More specifically, the American group has great similarities with Led Zeppelin’s British, and vocalist Josh Kiszka has been consistently compared to Robert Plant, so much so that he has joked about it.
In an interview with Q103, drummer Jason Bonham (John Bonham’s son) said he fears for the future of the band because of comparisons that he says don’t reflect reality.
“I got an alert, because there was all the Led Zeppelin toss involved. I would be annoyed if I were Robert [Plant]. I would be annoyed if they said he sounds like Robert.
Robert don’t sound like that. Robert was wonderful, and still is, but when he was young, his voice was much better, from a truly differentiated level.
Just because he does treble and puts his hand on his belt, I worry about the hype that the band is winning and that this will ruin them. I wish them all the best.”
