Guns N’ Roses Icon Reacts To Vicious Greta Van Fleet Diss

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan liked a new tweet by Michael Grey where he mocked Greta Van Fleet for trying to sound like Led Zeppelin.

Girl Child: “Dad, who is this band trying to sound like Greta Van Fleet?”

Me: “That’s Led Zeppelin and if you turn it down and listen closely you can hear your grand dad rolling over in his grave.”

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash discussed Greta Van Fleet and the state of rock in a 2018 Rolling Stone interview.

No up-and-coming musician could live the way that Guns were living before the band was signed, because it would all end up being narced on via social media.

“Oh yeah, yeah. I mean, it would seem like you were doing it intentionally, or whatever.”

The Greta Van Fleet phenomenon is interesting – they’re opening for you guys.

“It makes me really happy to see it. I wish they didn’t sound so much like Led Zeppelin, but still, the idea of’ four kids getting onstage and just playing their ’ buts off with just a couple amps and a drum kit, and just playing their instruments, as opposed to having all this other ’ stuff going on, you know, that’s really healthy, and I think that’s inspiring.

“It definitely makes a lot of kids who are doing the same thing, that no one’s ever heard of… it gives them hope to be able to get somewhere.”

Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash said Greta Van Fleet are at the forefront of the resurgence of rock and roll in a new Billboard Radio China interview. Alternative Nation transcribed his comments.

“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.”
