Get A Haircut, Get A Real Job

Piet Botha was born on the 18th July 1955 and passed away on the 2nd June 2019 (today a year ago).

Piet Botha

I created a mix inspired by attending a variety of Piet’s gigs over the years, and discovering some of his many and varied influences.

I have only just scratched the surface here, as Piet’s repertoire was vast, including Southern Rock, Metal, Blues, Reggae, Folk and more.

I have chosen some of the songs that Piet covered in concert, but for a bit of variety I have chosen different artists versions, such as The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers” done by Poison and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” by Albert de Wet.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
