    The first time that I heard of Greta Van Fleet was in the Spring of 2017 when one of my son’s friends excitedly showed me a video on You tube of a new band he just discovered. The song was “Highway Tune” and I was impressed. When I got home I Googled the Greta Van Fleet and found out that they were from a city in my Native Michigan that my relatives lived in that I visited many times called Frankenmuth. That was why when they came to Portland, Oregon in 2017 and 2018 I got tickets and a press pass to photograph the show and interview the Drummer Danny Wagner for Blues Rock Review.

    I never cease to wonder about all the great music artists that have come out of Michigan since the rock & roll era peaked in the 1960’s. I took it for granted when artists like Marvin Gay and Stevie Wonder would perform at my high school dance or the roller rink with artists like “Question Mark & the Mysterians” and Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels. I thought that it was coincidental when Wayne Kramer did an MC5 50th Anniversary tour shortly after the Greta Van Fleet. I saw the MC5 multiple times in the 1960’s and was present at the great footage on You Tube of them performing at Tartar Field by Wayne State University.
