Greta Van Fleet Reveal If Ozzy Osbourne Sucks


Greta Van Fleet guitarist Jake Kiszka revealed what he really thinks about Ozzy Osbourne in an AXS interview.

AXS: Do you have a favorite story from your tour with the Struts?

JK: It would have to be the reception we garnered from the audiences, and this happened at all six of the shows we did with The Struts. When we would finish our set and walk off stage, the crowd continued to cheer. We’d wait about five minutes for them to stop, but they didn’t, they continued to applaud and cheer. We don’t have roadies and we had to get back out on the stage to pack up our gear, so we eventually had to go back out on stage, and the crowds continued to cheer while we packed up. That really was the best part of the tour and certainly not anything we had anticipated.

AXS: Your tour schedule for the rest of the year has GVF playing some big festivals including the Louder than Life festival in Louisville where the line-up includes big stars like Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie. Who among the scheduled performers would you most like to meet or even get to jam with?

JK: I’m a Black Sabbath fan so Ozzy Osbourne is the ONE. He’s historically significant and has been a big part of music for a very long time. I’m sure he would be a very interesting person to have a conversation with.

AXS: The band is garnering notoriety very quickly right now. Do you have any thoughts or band guidelines in place to make sure you stay grounded?

JK: Family is a big part of our remaining grounded. Because of the way we were raised, it would be hard for us to grow inflated heads by any means. We couldn’t not be humble if we tried. And I think we’ll go home as often as we can; that will be good for keeping us grounded.
