57 He doesnt believe anyone is born a great guitarist singer or an accountant for that matter. If you stick to it you can only improve. A lot of people get into music and expect overnight results it just doesnt work like that. It takes years of consistent effort. When asked about the artists with whom hes had the privilege of performing he recites a laundry list of whos who in current music he played Coke Fest in 2008 alongside 30 Seconds to Mars Good Charlotte and Korn. Then there was Ellis Park last year with B.o.B Jessie J and Fallout Boy. Years ago Garth and his band opened for Avril Lavigne on her tour of South Africa. A few years back he toured with Katy Perry and Gym Class Heroes in fact he remembers studying for his board exam while on the tour bus For some rubbing elbows with globally- recognised personalities could leave you with a rather large head but Garth remains grounded and focused on keeping his two worlds separate and balanced so dont expect IFRS tips during song breaks. Ultimately Garth believes that the only way to be happy in both your personal and work life is to understand that you are responsible for achieving happiness. Dont wait for that lucky break or that promotion or the perfect job to pop up. It wont. You have to go and find it. And if you dont find it create it Music is in my blood picturing my life without music is almost impossible for me. I suppose there is a good chance that when Im 60 years old I will end up singing cover versions on my own in a pub somewhere in the West Rand on a Thursday night while patrons do their best to block out the noise as long as Im still playing Im ok with that. With his dynamism drive and creativity were certain that wont be his future. Left Garth on stage Photos Supplied
