Today, bassist Sam Kiszka broke his silence about the claims when asked if Led Zeppelin comparisons were scary. Sam said that it was a great comparison because he thought it wasn’t scary.
Here’s what Sam Kiszka stated:
“Not really. I mean, it’s not like they aren’t the greatest rock & roll band ever [laughs]. It’s a huge compliment. I think the new record will pick up where we left off and show the many sides that Greta Van Fleet has in terms of soundscapes.
And I think it’ll take our concept up a few notches. We’re also trying to keep live takes. We really value the natural feel of how we play live.”
He also revealed one of the favorite Led Zeppelin songs, saying:
“I’m a thousand times better than I was last year because we have been playing live so much. With the new record,
I’ve really been focused on melodies – songs like Ramble On [Led Zeppelin II]. People sing that bass line. That’s how you know it’s a fantastic bass line.”
