Greta Van Fleet was the band for Saturday Night Live this past week performing their Grammy-nominated hit “Black Smoke Rising” and new single “You’re the One”. Unfortunately not everyone loved their performance calling it "lifeless" and "boring". You be the judge and decide for yourself.
I'll be honest here, not totally blown away. The kid needs to amp up his stage presence and I've always said that since I saw him at last year's Hangout Festival. I'm honestly kind of shocked nobody has been working with him on it and if they are, I can't tell. I love Greta Van Fleet and really want them to become superstars so they can bring rock back from life support and get it back to its roots. But with album reviews like this, it's going to be tough
Unfortunately that wasn't the only poor review but I still have hope. I really want Greta Van Fleet to succeed and it starts with the stage presence. They have the sound and the talent but if you're just standing there with a microphone and don't look comfortable, you're doomed.
2019 is going to be a telling year for them. The novelty act of them sounding like Zeppelin is over. Time to see what these kids have got. We're all rooting for you
