The one video to rule them all.
Led Zep sound, Galadriel, Shadowfax…the hints run deep. In fact, this could be a tribute to Stairway.
The song Meeting the Master is about the band’s meeting with their musical hero, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page. The band was invited to meet Page at his home in the English countryside, and they were reportedly blown away by his hospitality and generosity. Page even gave the band some of his guitars to use, which they still use today.
The song itself is a tribute to Page and Led Zeppelin, and it features some of the same bluesy riffs and soaring vocals that made Led Zeppelin famous. The song is a reminder of the impact that Led Zeppelin had on rock music, and it is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
One fun fact about Greta Van Fleet is that they have often been compared to Led Zeppelin due to their similar sound and style. In fact, some critics have even dubbed them as the “next Led Zeppelin.” Despite this comparison, the band members have cited a wide range of musical influences, including blues, folk, and classic rock, and have stated that they aim to create their own unique sound.
