    I found some early videos showing some of Jake’s gear. I know he had a Gibson SG with p90s, and a Marshall mg100. Other early videos show an egnater amp. I am not sure whether it is due to mic quality, or something with the rig.

    The singer reminds me of somebody...I can't think of who. Robert Cray? No. Robert Palmer? Hmmm. It will come to me. Robert....Zimmerman?

    They did not capture very well but could play at that time.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I drove my parents nuts by lifting up the needle on their stereo to learn Steppenwolf's Monster years ago.

    I still have the album with those scratches.

    I think you're thinking of the Robertson family, of Duck Dynasty fame.

    I have to say and I hope I am not out of line but the singer back then looks as if he were locked in a basement for years and was only afforded the listening of late sixties and early seventies rock and roll. :D :agreed: :fingersx: :applause: :fever:

    Sounds more like RP than RP himself. If their own stuff turns out to be a non-starter, they could hone the Zepp tribute act and make serious coin. I can't help thinking that to sound so much like a rock icon could be more hinderence than help. An unashamed attempt to cop the late '60's vibe even down to the random people stood around watching.

    That's hilarious!

    Yes, the singer does look like he's stuck on the 70's but he can really belt it out. Heck, Led Zeppelin's been gone for almost 40 years now so I'm ok with another similar sounding act coming along - although they claim that being Led Zeppelin Part II is not their intent. I read somewhere that the singer (btw the singer, guitarist and bassist are brothers) started singing loud like that to be heard over the rest of the band because they were too loud (never heard that before :)) and that developed into his style.

    Their first album is almost released .
    They had a couple of EP's before.
    Jakes gear is much better now he is playing a "Les Paul" the one that would eventually became a 1961 SG once Les Paul told Gibson not to use his name on the SG.
    One of his amps is Bletchly.

    Those amps are meticulously hand wired 59 slp I think.

    I am happy to see youngsters influenced by great musicians. Led Zeppelin took their music from the exact same place these young men did. Blues like Howling Wolf. Music

    LZ made their own unique style of music based on their influences. They didn't just clone Howlin' Wolf outright.

    Greta Van Fleet in a nutshell.

    Exactly, he had to be taught.

    You know Serena had to sleep while playing tennis off the ceiling with one hand and using the other for drinking muscle milk. Why do you think she is so good?

    If you guys really care...
    My step daughter was in dance class with Jake and his brother...
    My 2 step kids went to school and graduated with them...I can get any info you wish.
    My step son, jammed with them briefly while they were in highschool.


    Their dad is connected in the music scene and was the drive to getting them going.
    I am no fan...never was, but at least they aren't a typical "boy band"....they at least have guitars.


    The singer, did musicals and plays all through highschool and at the local theaters.
    I tell ya what...when the Fleet fails...you'll see him again.
    He is a talented young man.
