Story and Interviews by Scotty J
It is amazing to think that it was only about a year and a half ago when Greta Van Fleet burst onto the music scene! This young foursome from Frankenmuth, Michigan was introduced to Rock Titan Music Television almost immediately after their debut EP ‘Black Smoke Rising’ was released. From the moment I heard “Highway Tune”, there was no question these guys were the next great rock band to gain world wide acclaim.

June 28, 2017 was the day Greta Van Fleet first came to my attention. Had I only heard and not seen these guys, I’d have immediately thought ‘Black Smoke Rising’ was a lost Led Zeppelin set of recordings that never made it public. There was no question Josh, Sam, Jake, and Danny possessed a sound that would garner quick attention. The comparisons to Led Zeppelin were going to be unavoidable. But, would this be a good thing or a bad thing? Only time would tell.
