Greta Van Fleet Reacts to Robert Plant's Comments About the Band

Greta Van Fleet has been making waves in the world of rock over the past year or so, with their classic rock sound that is eerily similar to Led Zeppelin.

Earlier this year, even Robert Plant spoke out about his feelings on Great Van Fleet, saying, "They are Led Zeppelin I. Beautiful little singer, I hate him! He borrowed it from somebody I know very well!" in a sarcastic manner.

Speaking to NME, Greta Van Fleet's singer Josh Kiszka shared his thoughts on what Plant said.

It was kind of strange to watch, but it was quite flattering. I think he likes the stuff! That's good, to kinda get that seal of approval. He's one of the most fantastic singers ever. I think what he was taking from was those black singers like Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. It was just his interpretation, and I think I've got this separate interpretation. There are similarities, and I see it, so it was pretty amazing that he mentioned it.

Josh's twin brother and guitarist in the band Jake adds, "I think you got the best compliment. Considering he's an old, grump English guy."

Greta Van Fleet released a double EP From The Fires in 2017 to widespread acclaim and the single "Highway Song" hit #1 on the Billboard US Mainstream Rock chart. The band plans to release its first full-length studio album at some point this year.
