Bluesy Tuesday Episode 3: Greta Van Fleet, the next rock gods, or cheap Led Zeppelin wannabes?

Every once in a while a band comes along the stirs the pot, generating a large fanbase as well as detractors. Greta Van Fleet with their Led Zeppelin flavored debut has done both.

Their fans love them and show up to their shows in droves, evidenced by the sold out shows that they are playing around the US, but they do have their share of haters.

It boggles my mind that the same people who decry today’s bands a superficial, plastic, and unsoulful are the same ones who jump on the Greta Van Fleet hate wagon. Isn’t this the band that they have been waiting for? Why is Greta Van Fleet so polerizing?

It’s probably a combination of the band’s blatant Led Zeppelin infunce which they actually deny. This has understandably earned the ire of a lot of Led Zeppelin fans and has even irked Robert Plant a bit. They owe a lot of what they do to Led Zeppelin and they would do best just to own that and wear it as a badge of honor.

They are a young band and it will be interesting to see what they do next. In the meantime, what side of the fence are you on? Are you a Greta Van Fleet fan or foe?
