    .. who else?

    What I like is that it’s melodic rock. Not that it sounds like Led Zepplin specifically.

    The Answer are another relatively recent band that sound vaguely like Led Zep. I struggle a bit with their vocalist though.

    For older bands, maybe something like UFO?

    LOL I thought Thunberg had launched a range of electric delivery vehicles and you wanted information on potential rivals…

    Basically, anything played on Planet Rock should satisfy!

    Apart from Nightwish, who are totally poo.

    Yeah, just listen to Planet rock for a few days 🙄

    Remember to turn it over when you get the obligatory daily dose of Rush though

    Older and more esoteric try Kingdom Come (more Zep wannabees) or King’s X (genuine melodic rock)

    The Black Crowes. Start with Southern Harmony or if you’re a fan of Led Zep then you could listen to the live album they did with Jimmy Page, for contractual reasons there’s no Crowes stuff on it. The drummer from the Crowes is in a band called Trigger Hippy and I like their last album and another more recent one is Marcus Kings latest release. Those two are quite soulful rock albums.

    Well, only two of the band are female, but they’re the sisters who’s band it is.
    This from 1977, possibly the best thing they wrote:

    I don’t want old stuff. I know that GvF *sound like* Zep but they aren’t, there’s a different vibe and I feel that.

    The problem I have with Planet Rock is that it’s the same bloody records all the time, at least it is when I listen.

    Tune in to the Radio Caroline (rip Ronan) chart on Thursday night. Plenty of new interesting rock on there.

    Also Suzy Wilde on a Monday afternoon. Hearing lots of brilliant old stuff that’s new to me.

    Montrose

    Jack White/White Stripes

    Billy Squier

    Them Crooked Vultures

    *edit. And Humble Pie, I think they are too-often forgotten when discussing 70s rock. Steve Marriott had a distinctive style and should be familiar if you like GVF

    The Jaded Hearts Club. A new band so limited songs but I’m hoping for some good stuff.

    How have I not listened to Clutch before?!

    I’d second Kris Barras as a recommendation. Saw him on a triple bill with Walter Trout and Jonny Lang and thought he was OK, but nothing special. Then I bought his recent album and I’ve revised my opinion upwards, he’s a very good songwriter.

    Some early Rush would probably appeal (I tend to think that Van Fleet’s Cold Wind has a particularly Rush like quality).
