More history about the legend that is Piet Botha:
He started this long and illustrious career back in 1972, when as a Tuks student, he played as a solo artist at some of his hometown venues in Pretoria.
A true Rock ‘n Roller at heart, Botha is probably one of the finest guitarists this country has ever produced. His early influences and inspiration was found from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix and many of the rock legends of the 1960’s and 1970’s. In 1984 Botha formed the phenomenal rock outfit Jack Hammer and has kept the name ever since. Jack Hammer has seen many, many members come and go in it’s 33 year history, but it’s founder, the legendary Piet Botha alias the ‘Hammer’, is still rocking steady to this day. They will be touring the Western Cape in April to release Piet’s new Afrikaans album ‘Die Middernagtrein’.
