While talking to Botica’s Bunch about headlining the Good Day Sunshine Festival in March, local blues and roots legend John Butler let something slip that proves he’s just like us.

He’s teaching his daughter to drive.

And while you’d be forgiven in thinking it might be a horse and cart… lol no.

WA’s own crunchy, alternative man-of-the-land isn’t just teaching her to drive, he’s teaching her to drive a good ol’ manual 4WD.

“We’ve been doing driving lessons,” Butler told Botica’s Bunch, when asked what he’s been up to.

“She has to learn to drive a manual vehicle, a four-wheel-drive, which is hilarious.”

“I tell her if she can learn how to drive the 4WD, she’ll be fine.”
