Greta Van Fleet Bassist on What They've Learned From Metallica: 'It's Fascinating to Watch What They Do'

Greta Van Fleet bassist Sam Kiszka shared some of the biggest impressions from touring with Metallica, noting how the thrash giants have shown a lot of consistency and passion for their craft over the years.

Lars Ulrich & Co. may have been just a bunch of kids with big dreams when they started out, but their early success — which still surprises even the band’s own guitarist Kirk Hammett — was eventually molded into a rock-solid work ethic and undying love for the genre they represent. Given Metallica’s career trajectory, it’s no wonder that the guys from Greta Van Fleet look up the older band, as the Michigan rock collective similarly managed to score big with their 2018 debut LP “Anthem of the Peaceful Army” and turn that early momentum into a successful career.

Speaking to Jonathan Clarke of New York’s Q104.3 radio in a recent interview, Sam Kiszka noted how it’s “fascinating” to watch Metallica, whom GVF is supporting on their M72 World Tour, do their thing on a daily basis(transcription via Blabbermouth):

“I think that a really big one that’s kind of developed over the past few years, kind of post-pandemic, has been our relationship with Metallica and what those lads do, filling up stadiums…

They're very serious as far as their regimens go”: Sam Kiszka shares key takeaways from Metallica tour

“They’ve had a lot of consistency and they have a lot of passion for what they do and they take it very seriously. And it’s very fascinating to watch this group of people who have dedicated their entire life to doing what they do and doing it really well.”

He added:

“It’s a lot of work, but they make it look easy. Lars [Ulrich] was telling us that he really enjoys listening to Daniel’s [Wagner, GVF drummer] drum solo when he’s getting his massage to loosen up before the show, and then he goes into his practice room and kind of jams out a little bit.

“They’re very serious as far as their regimens go, and they eat the same things every day and they’re right down to it. And, you know, if that’s something we wanna be doing when we’re that age, I think that that’s a pretty great standard to set to.”
