Is Greta Van Fleet the “Boy Band Version of Led Zeppelin”?
In case you've been living under a rock, there's a band called Greta Van Fleet. This band sounds a whole lot like Led Zeppelin. Here's a great video about whether or not Greta Van Fleet sounds too much like Led Zeppelin.
Well, someone out there thinks Greta Van Fleet is just a boy band version of Led Zeppelin. That someone is Steven Wilson from Porcupine Tree. Not familiar with Porcupine Tree. I played this song when I was in college radio.
"I think they're absolutely abysmal. I think they're terrible; I think it's a joke . . . they're pretty young boys, they look like a boy band, they play this really piss-poor third-rate impersonation of Led Zeppelin . . ."
Oh, and just in case that wasn't enough, he doubled down by also saying:
"I don't believe for one minute that anyone will remember who they are in 10 years."
And just in case you were hoping to check out Porcupine Tree the next time they come through town, Don't hold your breath. They disbanded back in 2010.
