Greta Van Fleet bassist Sam Kiszka claimed in a new interview that the band’s new album can’t be called a Led Zeppelin or Robert Plant ripoff. Liam Gallagher ‘Disrespected’ Greta Van Fleet.
He told NME, “Not even a little bit, no. I think that’s just because we felt like we were evolving, and we felt we were getting kind of too far in our own direction to have other people steering our ship for us.
So I think it was really liberating, and it felt like a free album – we can really do whatever we want, we are free, we possess the ability to create whatever we want in this space. And I think we knew exactly what we were going to do. We were going to make an album that’s big.
You can’t really say anything about ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ that, you know, would draw negative comparisons to Led Zeppelin. I think it’s 110% Greta Van Fleet, and I think this is kind of in a lot of ways our coming-of-age record.”
Greta Van Fleet’s first EP and debut full length album were called Led Zeppelin ripoffs by many haters.
