“JUDAS PRIEST bassist Ian Hill was recently interviewed by Rob Rush Radio….”
“…..Hill also defended GRETA VAN FLEET over accusations that the Michigan rockers have ripped off LED ZEPPELIN. He said: “I’m familiar with them, yeah. I haven’t heard that much of them. Listen, things like that are inevitable. Everybody, especially when they start out, have got influences. When we started out, Ken‘s [guitarist K.K. Downing] big influence was Jimi Hendrix, for instance, and mine was Jack Bruce from CREAM. So you’ve got two people there together — you’ve got him playing Hendrix stuff, me playing Jack Bruce bass lines — and it was recognizable back then. But as you go forward, you find your own feet, you get your own sound, your own direction, you get your own image — the whole nine yards. If they’re going out to sound those [other bands], it might be a bit of a mistake. But I’m sure it’s influences, probably, coming through.”….
