Is there a bigger compliment, if one of history’s greatest rock bands says you sound just like them? This young band from Detroit have a killer sound, and according to one Robert Plant may even be Led Zeppelin I!


In a recent interview, Plant’s asked if there are any up and comers that he’s got his eye on, and he answers with a cheeky quip “There’s a band in Detroit called Greta Van Fleet, they are Led Zeppelin I. Beautiful little singer, I hate him!” He carries on by saying, “He borrowed [his voice] from somebody I know very well, but what are you going to do? At least he’s got a bit of style, because he’s said he based his whole style off Aerosmith,” Plant said with an eye roll.


Here’s the full interview with Robert Plant:


So we ask, are these guys the next Led Zeppelin? Take a listen to Greta Van Fleet’s track “Black Smoke Rising” and decide for yourself!


Greta Van Fleet will be in Vancouver come September when they take part in the upcoming Skookum Festival.
