The Inertia

Oahu’s North Shore is better known for cultivating surf talent than music greats. Jack Johnson nearly didn’t break that mold, until he went head first into the reef one day splitting his forehead and his lip. During recovery, Jack honed his guitar skills, and the rest is history.

In a recent interview with 60 Minutes Australia, Jack talks to Peter Stefanovic about his upbringing, growing up surfing, and his thoughts on fame. In the fashion you’d expect from the uber relaxed singer/songwriter, Jack’s almost blasé about his multi-platinum album sales, and global recognition.
