"Greta Van Fleet are gaining plenty of attention among rock fans. They’re reminding everyone of legendary rock band Led Zeppelin. Support the channel on Patreon: Let’s talk music: Twitter: Instagram: Listen to the Middle 8 Spotify playlist: Written, Voiced and Edited by Frank Furtado #gretavanfleet #ledzeppelin #middle8 ------------------------------- On one side we have those saying they’re too similar to Led Zeppelin’s sound, that they’re boring, blatant rip-offs and have yet to bring anything new to the table. On the other side we have those who are happy to have a band reviving the hard rock sound of the 70s, bringing it to a new generation of listeners and into a market that’s oversaturated with R&B and hip hop. Regardless of which side you sit on, Greta Van Fleet’s singles are quickly gaining them fans, see them climbing rock charts and have them selling out shows -- all of this and the band have yet to release a full debut record. This video essay explores Greta Van Fleet’s recent rise in popularity, the band members, their EP Black Smoke Rising and their double EP From the Fires. I also reflect on bands of the past that have been tapped for sounding too much like Led Zeppelin, including: Rush, Billy Squier, Kingdom Come, Wolfmother and Rival Sons. But even Led Zeppelin have been known to steal lyrics and riffs from artists without crediting them. ------------------------------- Disclaimer: I do not own any of the videos or music used in this video.
