Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Tracii Guns discussed Greta Van Fleet in a new interview with Ultimate-Guitar‘s David Slavković. Guns said he is impressed by what Greta Van Fleet have accomplished.
“The current rock scene is really good for L.A. Guns. I mean, I can look at it that way. There’s not a lot of bands doing exactly what we do, and we’re not doing anything that anybody else is really doing.
“And that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of rock bands. There are rock bands and they’re doing stuff. But I think that in rock, everybody’s kind of doing their own thing. And that’s healthy.
“Like, the new band that everybody’s talking about, Greta Van Fleet. They’ve got that garage-rock thing going on. So they’re capturing that vibe and that audience. Other than them, I don’t really know.”
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash recently did a Metal Hammer fan Q&A and he discussed Greta Van Fleet, praising them as they’re getting backlash from some other older artists.
A fan named Jennifer asked, “With the rise of bands like The Struts and Greta Van Fleet, do you think the classic rock sound is making a comeback?”
Slash responded, “That’s a good indication. The popularity of those two bands and all these other young bands that I’m aware of, there’s a rumble of this young rock movement that’s more about traditional rock’n’roll than what we’ve been used to, which has been void of real attitude. I think that there’s something happening right now that’s going to be interesting to see in five to 10 years’ time.”
