Ever notice how personal traits and careers tend to run in families? This is especially true of music. I grew up in Berkeley a few houses away from the Garthwaites, the most musical family I’ve ever known. Their mother, Merle, taught dance in the family home. In fact, the livingroom was simply one giant dance studio. The oldest brother, Tim, has played guitar and sang his whole life. Terry started a very successful rock group in the ’70s, The Joy of Cooking, featuring David on bass.
“Stay with the arts. They will sustain you.”
