Jason Bonham – the drummer son of late Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham – was asked by Q103 about Greta Van Fleet and the constant comparisons they get to the Zeppelin gang, to which he replied (via Blabbermouth):
“I got an alert, because it had all this Led Zeppelin thing about it. I’d have been annoyed if I’d been Robert [Plant]. I’d have been annoyed if they said that he sounded like Robert.
“Robert did not sound like that. Robert was amazing, and still is, but when he was in his young days, his voice was miles [better], just in a different league.
“Just because he sings high and he does his hand-on-the-hip thing, I just worry the hype that the band are getting, it will ruin them. I wish them all the very best.
“People should just love them for what they are, and not try and keep comparing them to Zeppelin, because it will kill them in the end. It will sometimes hurt them.
“Trust me – I know that, because for me, it takes a hell of a lot when you play drums and your dad’s John Bonham, the comparisons sometimes can be the hardest things to get past. I wish them all the very best, but I thought [they sounded] more [like] Black Crowes than Zeppelin myself.”
