Talking with NJ Arts, Joe Satriani was asked to point his favorite new band in the moment.
“I’ve been listening to this young band, Greta Van Fleet, and I’m really enjoying that exuberance that I’m hearing.
“When I first heard them, I sent their album to all my friends that were in my high-school band. We’re still good friends and we stay in touch and, I swear, that’s what we were trying to do when we were 15 years old. We were just trying to be like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and The Stones, but these guys are really good at it! [Laughs].
“They have that same kind of… it just sounds like they love music and they love what they’re doing and yeah, I’ve been listening to that quite a bit.”
Greta Van Fleet were formed in 2012 in Michigan. They’ve released their first two EPs last year, you can check out their debut single “Highway Tune”.
