LZ was a little before my time, but having an older brother in law that was a little more around that era, I've came to like some of their music. To me they have a very distinct sound.

Introducing Greta Van Fleet


To me....that's as close as you can get to their sound. I've not listened to much of their stuff yet, but so far, I like what I've heard.

I know they have been around a while, but with 3 younger girls in my house, I don't get to hear much of anything past Bieber, Swift, and Elmo songs.

I think I'll stick to the originals.

Rock ON! Proof the genre will never die. Even if it remotely sounds like the rock Gods.

I was around during Led Zeps hey-day, saw them perform live.

Remind them to develop their own sound, will carry them further in the long run.

Well, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

But Im afraid these kids dont Really get what its all about.

LZ and all of the British 60s rock scene was ALL blues based. The members of all British bands were blues enthusiasts and followers...........It is reflected in their "Sounds".....What was "Hard Rock" (later called Heavy Metal) was just a continuation of the original blues chords.

These guys should really listen to some of the Originals more, From the Beatles thru to Kinks, the Who, Cream, the Original Peter Green Fleetwood Mack, and all in between.

They are trying hard, but just dont get "It"....they are imitating without understanding.

Maybe they should listen to Silverchair, who were 15 year olds when they made it in 1995....and were in the Grunge blues sound of the period.

I heard these guys on the radio about a month ago and honestly thought I was listening to an unreleased LZ song.

I really like that Highway tune

I think your being a little harsh, there are not many that can get anywhere close to the original thing, but good on them for trying I say.

hundreds of thousands of bands across the globe.... Some are bound to sound like others. This band has their idols, and they also bring a new edge to the old style, more melodic, shorter songs as opposed to bluesy, such as in the yester-years.

They aren't "imitating without understanding", they have their own style and flair. I mean Rishloo and Chevelle were coined as "imitators" of Tool when they first came out, however they have their own different styles, and evolved in different ways as they played more and got more songs out.

These guys aren't blues, they don't have 10 minute long tracks, they don't go off into psychedelic solos, etc, they stick to more modern time signatures and styling.

Give em some time, I think we'll all be surprised.

I for one, loved these guys! Thank you for bringing the band to my attention!

I have to admit, these guys are pretty good.
Some of the best new stuff I have heard in a while.
Is it a coincidence that they sound like Zep?...not a chance.
I guarantee once the 2 brothers heard what the other brother sounded like when he sang, they ran with it.
It's doesn't take a rocket scientist to hear that he sounds like Robert Plant but is he better than Plant?...I would say no but he is close.
I have a buddy that thinks Led Zep are still to this day, God's gift to music.
I am going to throw this video to him and see what he says, I can pretty much guarantee he will like them.

These boys would do well with their own stuff don't you think.... ! Contrary, not everybody was enamored with
Led Zeppelin. Sorry to burst bubbles, but the 60's were flooded with good stuff, in which Led Zeppelin was one of many. Beatles, Cream, Santana, CSN&Y, Mountain, Quicksilver, CCR, The Doors, EOL, Procol Harum, Pink Floyd, Traffic, Yes, Moody Blues, The Who, Hendrix....... and so many more. So you see, the Led Zeppelin was good yea... Best ? Doubtful.

That is their own stuff.
I agree with you....Zep might not be the best but they were top 5 for sure.
I grew up in the 70s but I am a more modern rock, progressive rock/metal type of guy and there are very few older songs that I won't change the station on, if I am listening to regular radio.
I have heard every Led Zep song 10X over, but these kids have a good sound.

I hear they are going to be at O'Conners Irish Pub in Clarksville, TN on Oct. 10th. If anyone is in the area and trying to hit that up.

Not too bad, they just need to have slightly longer hair, take more drugs for the next 5 years, mature their lyrics and produce something like Tangerine.

For hardcore never-die Led Zep fans, I got a treat for ya..

With the re-issues that Page put out over the last few years, we got many special surprises from the archives. Many alternate takes and totally unreleased gems.

Here's what didn't make the cut

Saw Zeppelin a couple of times in the late 60s before they were really famous when they played the Belfry and the Mayfair in Birmingham. It was a sight to behold with no mixing deck foolery, just Paige playing "by hand" so to speak.

When I heard this on the radio I thought, "Hmm Page and Plant have new material out." Yup, it's damn close.

^^This pretty much sums it up.^^

Zepplin's "In Through the Out Door" album is a prime example of this.
