During a recent interview with Triple M radio from Australia, Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has shared his thoughts about new generation rock stars, Greta Van Fleet.
Slash said that he finds the Greta Van Fleet phenomenon pretty interesting and cool. He continued:
“It’s really opening the doors for a lot of young, new bands — which there are a ton of — that just can’t get any kind of traction. So it’s really cool that those guys are making such headway.
“The thing is there’s a really cool energy right now for new rock and roll bands, and it’s the right kind of energy, ’cause it’s kids that are into doing this for the right reasons. It’s not about getting on MTV, it’s not about fame and stardom, it’s not about Learjets and chicks, ’cause none of that shit [exists in the music industry] anymore.
It’s all about the music and it’s about the passion of just doing whatever it takes to be able to get your music out in front of people. So I’m really inspired about what’s gonna be happening over the next two, three to five years, and coming out new music-wise.”

Back in December 2018, he talked about Greta Van Fleet in an interview with Billboard China and said:
“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.”
