Piet began writing songs and forming bands while still at school and his first professional gig was as an acoustic duo in 1974. In 1984 he founded the Blues Rock group Jack Hammer.
During the 1990s Jack Hammer opened for Deep Purple and Uriah Heep on their “Masters of Rock” tour and were also privileged to be the supporting act for ZZ Top on their South African tour.
Botha was one of the first musicians inducted into the SA Rock Hall Of Fame in January 2002. On the 6th May 2006 Piet Botha was awarded a South African Music Awards Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to South African music. He was also awarded a Prestige Award by the FAK in September 2006 for his contribution to the Afrikaans language.
Jack Hammer is the country’s longest-standing rock band, its existence spanning three decades with Piet Botha at their helm.
He plays not only because his fans love to see him, but as John Lee Hooker sang “it’s in him and it got to come out”.

Piet Botha, was born in 1955 and shares his birth date of 18th July with Nelson Mandela. He began writing songs and forming bands while still at school and his first professional gig was as an acoustic duo in 1974 at a local drinking hole in Pretoria.

In 2011 Botha appeared in the television series “Wie Lê Waar” (Who Lies Where) on the Afrikaans TV channel kykNET. In the programme he visits the graves of famous Afrikaner icons and tells about their lives. The series led indirectly to the recording and release of the very popular “Spookpsalms”, Botha’s first solo album in 8 years.

In 2012 Piet cemented his over two decades of friendship and brotherhood with the Akkedis band, by releasing a collaborative album under the name “The Lyzyrd Kyngs”. The name comes from a Jim Morrison poem, “The celebration of the Lizard King”. The weird spelling is a combination of ancient English and a serious reference to Lynyrd Skynyrd, a band that has been a source of inspiration for more than thirty years.

Piet Botha still tours and plays often. Sometimes solo or as duo, sometimes with Jack Hammer or The Lyzyrd Kyngs. He plays not only because his fans love to see him, but as John Lee Hooker sang ”it’s in him and it got to come out”.

Piet Botha is the son of the former South African Minister of Foreign Affairs Pik Botha (not to be confused with P.W. Botha). Pik Botha who served during the last years of the apartheid era was considered to be a liberal, at least in comparison to others in the ruling National Party and among the Afrikaner community at the time.

In 2011 Botha appeared in the television series “Wie Lê Waar” (Who Lies Where) on the Afrikaans TV channel kykNET. In the programme he visits the graves of famous Afrikaner icons and tells about their lives.
