Steven Wilson trashes Greta Van Fleet saying they impersonate Led Zeppelin

In an interview on My Rock Podcast, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree, Yes, Jethro Tull) trashed the rock and roll sensation Greta Van Fleet saying they are a “piss-poor third-rate impresonation of Led Zeppelin.”

He said:

“That terrible band Greta Van Fleet, you know that band? I think they’re absolutely abysmal. I think they’re terrible; I think it’s a joke.”

“They’re an example of a band – because they’re pretty young boys, they look like a boy band, they play this really piss-poor third-rate impersonation of Led Zeppelin.”

“But they’re pretty and they’ve had all the help of the media and the commercial machine behind them, and they’ve been able to reach a massive audience overnight by playing third-rate music.

“I don’t believe for one minute that anyone will remember who they are in 10 years. Maybe they’ll prove me wrong and develop into a good band and make a good record, but the point is, at the moment, they’re not.”

“They’re like a boy band version of Led Zeppelin. I understand why that happens, I’m not naive, I understand that a lot of the industry is based around being young, pretty, having the right image. I’ve never had any of that stuff.”
