During the recent interview with Billboard Radio China, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash spoke about the current statute of rock music and revealed the band that could save the rock music.
According to Alternative-Nation, he drew attention to Greta Van Fleet. Here’s the statement:
“I’m interested to see where it goes the next few years, because there’s a lot of really hungry young rock and roll bands getting together right now that I’m aware of.
Obviously Greta Van Fleet have done amazingly well and made everybody perk up and go, ‘Oh wow.’ Now there’s people looking for young teenage rock and roll bands to sign.
It’s interesting, if you watch everything and as it develops in real time, it’s really boring. Shit takes what seems like forever, but if you’re not paying attention, all of a sudden you’ll turn around and go something just changed. It’s a constant state of ebbs and flows with rock and roll in this business.”

Back in September 2018, Slash talked with USA Today and said:
“Rock isn’t mainstream anymore, and in some ways, I like that. It harks back to when rock ‘n’ roll was more of an underground concept – when people were speaking about things that they weren’t necessarily comfortable saying in the mainstream arena.
As far as hip-hop is concerned, it’s become so generic at this point. It’s definitely taken on a very Top-40 thing.”
