He said he really loved the sound of Eddie Vedder's voice, the lead singer of the band, and we talked about the fact that this young man was also a musician. Then he pulled out his iPhone and showed me a Youtube video of new young rock band who is exploding on the music scene currently called "Greta Van Fleet" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greta_Van_Fleetc and they hail from Michigan.
I was blown away by the video who showed me especially since I am a baby boomer and I love classic rock and Led Zeppelin like millions of other people do in the world. Greta Van Fleet formed in 2012 and they have that incredible sound of classic rock/Led Zeppelin to be exact and to be such a young musicians in my opinion. Their style of music appears to us old timers especially. Even the lead singer sounds exactly a young Robert Plant. They have apparently tapped into a unique music niche market in order appeal to the masses of all age groups with their sound, music and style.
The band members are Josh Kiszka, Jake Kiszka, Sam Kiszka, and Danny Wagner and in April of this year, the band released their debut studio digital EP on iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/black-smoke-rising-ep/id1226696489 called, "Black Smoke Rising." The debut single, "Highway Tune," has topped the Billboard US Mainstream and Active Rock stations this past September. Currently, Greta Van Fleet is touring the country to sold out clubs and venues everywhere. http://gretavanfleet.com/
It appears that if Greta Van Fleet keeps stoking the fires that's causing black smoke to rise everywhere, they will stay on a fast track to fast fame and fortune. They will go far in this brave, new digital world that we live in if they keep it up. Greta Van Fleet's already quick success on the internet and in the social media realm of the globe, kind of reminds me of Van Halen's fast rise to world-wide recognition and instant riches in the late 70's during the vinyl record and analog recording days of that time era. Great Van Fleet better fasten their seat belts because it looks like they are in for one hell of a ride!
