Greta Van Fleet lead vocalist Josh Kiszka opened up about the similarity between their music and the legendary band Led Zeppelin’s music and stated that Led Zeppelin has a big influence on them, however, their music is quite different than Led Zeppelin’s.
As many of you know, Greta Van Fleet has a huge similarity to Led Zeppelin thanks to a few things, first, lead vocalist Josh Kiszka sounds extremely similar to Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, and two, they were heavily influenced by Led Zeppelin since the band members grew up listening to musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and the Beatles.
Ever since Greta Van Fleet released their debut single ‘Highway Tune’ fans immediately noticed the near-identic vocals in addition to the similar riffs to Led Zeppelin’s song, ‘The Rover.’ While some believe that Greta Van Fleet is not an original band due to their resemblance, some still enjoy their music and appreciate the similarity.
During a recent interview with The Zane Lowe Show, Josh Kiszka opened up about the similarity between them and Led Zeppelin by stating that Led Zeppelin is clearly a big influence for Greta Van Fleet, however, their upcoming album ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ is going to reveal the sound of Greta Van Fleet.
Here is what Josh said:
“You don’t want to be stagnant, oh never. And I think we’re at that point actually where we can finally say, yeah, Led Zeppelin’s obviously a big influence for us because we are not making music that sounds really anything remotely like that.
What ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ is the coming of age of the sound of Greta Van Fleet and how Greta Van Fleet relates to the 21st century.”
