How many bands out there are not copying someone who came before them??  Either intentionally or not.  Not a lot.

I don't think they are trying to imitate anyone.  It's not the singer's fault if he sometimes sounds like Plante, or the guitar player like Page.  They have drawn from many bands of the late 60s and very early 70s... and who the hell hasn't?  These kids are SO young and look how good they are already.  I hate to say it, but when the guys in Rush were 19 - 21... they weren't very good at all.  I just watched a youtube of a Greta concert that was played just two weeks ago and in comparison to their early shows of one year ago, they have matured their stage craft and live sound beyond words.  This is the real deal.  I just hope they stay out of drugs, booze and stupidity because there will be a ton of pressure on them this year to be "cool rock stars."

I agree.  I saw them at Rebel in Toronto this year.  One of the best rock shows I have seen in years!

I think Rival Sons does a much better job at tapping that retro vein.

Like Ghostbusters and Jumanji and any other remake, the remake is never as good.

These Greta van Zep losers should be embarrassed. Knowing that Robert Plant rolled his eyes the first time he heard them should be enough to make them try to do their own thing.
