They deserve ridicule, nothig else. Hand it to AIC or Weezer, bands that have a distinct original style and can write really good songs from time to time

There are much much worse bands they could be copying.

If they want to turn a new generation onto Zeppelin, that's only a benefit for music going forward.

The more Godsmacks there are on the radio, the more future rock is going to sound like Godsmack. :noclue:

Yeah, that is the ONE good thing about it, I guess.

Robert Plant was asked about them and said: He borrowed his style from someone I know very well and added that the singer in GVF has said that he got his style from Aerosmith :lol:

I am still really on the fence about GVF. I do think that the lead singer's voice was ascribed, not achieved. I'm not saying Zep isn't in the back of their minds, but hey. I do really appreciate a group so young working so hard and continuing to compose. There is so much time left for them....it will be really interesting to see what they continue to release.

As for the Grammy's....missed them this year. I did go back and watch RHCP with that Post Malone guy who I cannot stand.

I wouldn't mind if their next album sounded like Aerosmith either.

Modern radio is full of too much Rock, and too little Rock n Roll.

I really like GVF! I saw them last year and have tickets to see them again in May. I think people who dismiss them should them live....they are REALLY good! I love classic rock and think it's refreshing to see these young guys do it so well. :rockon:
