    Awesome! Was wondering if anyone else had come across this band.

    Great timing, Lizard!  My husband just introduced them to me.

    Young guys indeed and so talented.

    (we compared the kiddo's voice to Plant and Geddy Lee)

    Played on Howard stern last week.   A whole lot of people now know about them

    What a voice on this kid...sounds so much like Robert Plant.  Can't believe how young these guys are...2 of them are 21 and the other 2 are 18 and just graduated high school.

    WMMR has been playing them a lot.  If i didn't know who it was beforehand i would have thought it was a Zeppelin/Plant song

    I saw them in Louisville on the 1st at the Louder than Life festival....they were impressive

    Definite Led Zeppelin vibe.  The singer, guitar and bass/keyboard player are brothers

    I know. Thinking about grabbing a couple off StubHub though since it's just a GA show anyway.

    They're there this evening - just ran into the non-brother member in our parking lot!  I found out a dude/buddy who works at the venue could get me in, but they're playing two more shows there at the end of the month.  Think we're gonna go for one of those.

    That's what we're planning on. Probably going to grab drinks/dinner at the Rainbow. We'll be there Oct 27-30

    I saw this comment on youtube and thought it was pretty good:
    Hey kid- take care of that voice. don't blow it out after 4 years. keep your guitarist away from the coke and keep your drummer away from the booze. hire a pro wrestler to be your manager. don't trust anyone to watch your money when you play madison square garden. do these things and you should be alright. best of luck!

    I'd really like to go to a live show.  They're playing a festival in Vancouver on the same weekend as Foo Fighters but the date hasn't been narrowed down yet.  Also doesn't sound like their headlining it, so if it was the same day as Foo, I could hyptothetically go to both. 

    I bought Black Smoke Rising on vinyl the other day.  Record store doesn't have a slot for Greta Van Fleet and someone jammed it in with the next artist so I found it there (instead of the misc section).    Employee said I was lucky because they thought it'd be sold out for a while.

    It was great being introduced to this band via The Trains Lounge Car (I had missed this thread).  My first reaction to hearing these kids rock out was- wow, great!.  My second reaction was to pray to the gods of music to send these lads the gift on a great manager- someone with enough savvy to make the right suggestions but the wisdom and patience to let them develop as naturally as possible.  The buzz about this band, of course, is their Zep vibe and that is cool, but I really belief their ultimate fate lies in their ability to create their own sound and their own vibe.  I think they have the smarts and the chops to do it.  Lets hope those music gods come through for these boys.

    Just been listening to these guys! Really digging it! From the Fires is a real rocking set. The Led Zep comparisons are obvious but that can’t be a bad thing when it sounds so good!

    I've been seeing this name on the internet a lot lately but had dismissed it due to the name being "Greta Van Fleet." Couldn't help but think of that Fox News host. But...after seeing a post declaring them the new Led Zeppelin, I was like "Oh...it's a rock band. I'll give them a listen." And they're pretty good. I guess every rock band rips off Zeppelin to a degree. But this singer really walks the walk. Good stuff.

    First heard them last year on Sirius Spectrum and literally did a double take as I was wondering if it was new unreleased Zeppelin.
    Then I got to see them headline in a small hall this past December and damn glad I did.

    This band is from Frankenmuth, MI.  I grew up just over an hour away from there.  It’s a really funny town known for its gigantic Christmas store and German culture that my family would visit annually. Small world...

    Very talented young fellas but I just can't get into the Zeppelin schtick.
