Kyle Hauck is an American musician, a former member and original drummer of the Greta Van Fleet band, which is known for winning a Grammy Award for the ‘Best Rock Album’ in 2019. He is one of the founding members and former drummer of Greta Van Fleet, which was established in 2012 and adopted hard rock and blues-rock as their music style. Their first single, ‘Highway Tune’ from the debut EP ‘Black Smoke Rising,’ stood top on the Billboard US Mainstream Rock chart. Their following albums, ‘Anthem of the Peaceful Army’ and ‘The Battle at Garden’s Gate’ earned the group further popularity among music lovers.
Besides their success in the rock industry, drummer Kyle Hauck‘s departure from the band also drew the attention of their fans. In 2013, after one year of the band’s establishment, it was announced that Hauck was parting ways with the band. Kyle performed on GVF tracks, “Cloud Train’ and “Standing On”, and he was replaced by Danny Wagner who is still the band’s drummer. But the audience wondered why Hauck left so early when he had just started his music career.

Greta Van Fleet was formed in Frankenmuth, Michigan, by the Kiszka brothers and Kyle Hauck. It is famous for its albums like “From The Fires”, “Black Smoke Rising”, “Anthem Of The Peaceful Army”, and “The Battle at Garden’s Gate.” Despite his short time in the band, Kyle is still talked about as he was a founding and popular member of the rock band. After leaving the band, Kyle Hack completely stepped off from the media. So, not much of information of him is accessible at the moment but will be updated very soon.
When the former band manager Michael Barbee was asked about this, he said:
“He (Hauck) had some health problems and there was a sudden drop in his ethics as a member of the band. He was the kind of guy who wanted to be paid to rehearse. He let us down. I had not found out until we were ready to do this show at a club and he said he had injured his knee, then someone came and told me: ‘I saw him walking normally at the football game last night.’
It was then that the manager went to look for Danny Wagner, current GVF drummer:
“I called Danny and he was in Detroit. When I got to the show, Danny and his parents were already waiting for me. He was a guitarist, so he had never really been a drummer. But he would replace Kyle on drums. After Danny played with the Kiszka brothers (Josh, Jake and Sam) that night, they were like, ‘Let’s announce it to him.’ We all drove to Danny and it was kind of ‘welcome to the group’. That’s it.”
Kiszka brothers joined by saying “We think we parted our ways amicably, we wanted to leave things in the most peaceful state possible. But if you asked him, he might have a different answer, who knows. I know he must have some not-so-cool things to say about all of us. He never said anything directly to us.”
And the GVF’s current drummer David Wagner said “When he (Kyle) was in the band it was very engaging. Always just get together and the five of us would all play at the same time, but I haven’t seen him very often.”
