My brother sent me this link. If you like Zeppelin, check these guys out. I believe three of them are brothers. Right now they have 2 EP's out.

Giving Kingdom Come a run for their money! I bought this EP, but they are total Led Clones. Good stuff regardless if Zep is your thing.

Yeah, after my brother sent the link I listened to it then bought the digital EP. Only like 4 bucks, not a bad price.

I picked up their latest From the Fires on a whim and really digging the Zep vibe. It'll be interesting to see where they go from here though. Continue to mimic Zeppelin or develop their own sound?

Yeah it's a really good album. They've got the Zeppelin sound down for sure.

I just re-found this band on Sleazeroxx.† I recognized the name because I vaguely remembered stumbling across this thread but for some reason the posted song didn't impress me at the time.†

It did tonight though.† I'm still debating buying the digital copy of From The Fires though because I'm not sure I want 8 tracks of such a retro sound.† This band definitely has the talent and the singer is a dead ringer for a very young Robert Plant but the music is just a little too retro for me I think.†

I'd like to see them develop more along the lines of The Answer - who also had a very retro sound at first but added more modernized touches until they dropped that last turd of an album.

Are The Answer still around or did they kill themselves with that album.

No idea but I sure hope they're still around and return to their previous sound.† They were rapidly rising on my favorite bands list until that last one.† Hell even their bonus tracks and discs were worth owning because they didn't sound like half-finished or crappy songs.††

But boy, that "Solas" album turned off a lot of fans.† I never even bought it.† I read all the horrible reviews and listened to a few tracks and stayed far away.

It sounded like if you did classic rock Muzzak style for the most part. A couple decent songs but man, they really lost their sound.

Which I sure hope doesn't happen to this band.

I'd love to see them "modernize" their sound a bit but I'll be interested to see where Greta Van Fleet goes from here.† They definitely have the talent to go far and that singer needs to protect his voice; what an instrument that is.

I read that Greta Van Fleet is heading into the studio soon to record their full length debut. I'm definitely curious to see where this band goes.

As for The Answer, I wouldn't be surprised if they call it a day. I read an interview with the lead singer a few years ago and he sounded so disillusioned about the music business and their lack of support or notoriety. They were 3 or 4 albums in at that point and just came off the tour with AC/DC and had nothing to show for it. No money, no radio airplay, barely a blip on the charts. It's gotta be tough in this day and age to soldier-on with so little in return. Releasing that last clunker of an album could be the final nail in that coffin.

I wish the Answer would go back to the more retro sound like on their first few albums.
The more modern they sounded the less I liked it.

I'd be happy if they just went back one album.† Or more.† Just forget that last one.

Is it wrong that everytime I hear this band's name, I think of this?

Origin of the name:

Well, Gretna Van Fleet with an ďnĒ between the ďtĒ and the ďaĒ. I never really got to meet her prior naming the band after her. We had to come up with the band name a day before one of the shows we were doing, the first big show we would do in the street at the Auto Fest there. Our previous drummer, the original drummer that we had for about a year, had gone to lunch with his grandfather and his grandfather was going to drop him off over here so we could practice here in the garage. Itís the epicenter of our meanderings. We said ďMy grandfather said he had to go cut wood for Gretna Van Fleet. I think that could be a cool title.Ē So we took the ďnĒ out because it would be easier. Thatís what we stuck with. We went into town and did the first show and from then on, that was title. A lot of interesting things happened since with the title. Because sheís right in town, we would play festivals at the Fischer Hall downtown and there would people calling Gretna asking at her house asking if she was playing a show there. She used to be a drummer in a polka band. Her and her husband came out to listen to us and they gave us their blessing. Weíve had a good relationship with them.

Just like Lynyrd Skynyrd.† A band named after some everyday person.
