In a recent interview on the Dannish podcast “myROCK”, Steven Wilson made some comments on Greta Van Fleet. “You know that terrible band Greta Van Fleet,” Wilson said (hear audio around 31:50 mark below). “Do you know that band? I think they’re absolutely abysmal. I think they’re terrible. I think it’s a joke. But they’re an example of a band, because they’re pretty young boys, they look like a boy band, they play this really piss-poor, third-rate impersonation of Led Zeppelin. But they’re pretty and they’ve had all the help of the media, the commercial machine behind them, and they’ve been able to reach a massive audience almost overnight by playing third-rate music. And I don’t believe for one minute that anyone will even remember who they are in 10 years. Now, I might be wrong — maybe they’ll prove me wrong. Maybe they’ll suddenly develop into a good band and make a good record. But the point is, at the moment, they’re not. They’re like a boy-band version of Led Zeppelin.”
