The Bush singer is married to one of the world's most beautiful women, has a young family and has enough money in the bank to never work again.
Yet he is now bringing a revived Bush to the ABC, Glasgow, next week, and the singer believes he will never ditch touring as long as he has a balance in his life.
"I love being on the road, I'm a warrior," he says. "It's important to have the balance between family and my kids, and all of them are great, and life on the road.
People ask how I figure it out with Gwen (Stefani, his wife since 2002) being on the road like me with No Doubt.
"But we are like any working parents, just finding the balance between work and family, and one area is always suffering.
"It's a constantly evolving process, and I still don't know much. School starts soon, and there is going to be an added responsibility there."
He has had some time to focus on family matters over the past several years, however.
After Bush disbanded in 2002, it was six years before he released his first solo album, and now he has decided to return to Bush, along with original drummer Robin Goodridge.
The grunge foursome enjoyed huge success in America with their bruising rock, while Swallow cracked the charts over here.
But after letting the group fall away in 2002, why return to the band now?
"It's unfinished business," explains Gavin. "I really thought the first solo record was going to be a Bush record, but then the guys were not able to do it, and I really should just have done this line-up of Bush back then instead of waiting.
"Who doesn't hate it when someone does a solo record, you roll your eyes at them, but in my case there was no choice, and it went down really well.
"But it took so long that I didn't want to do another solo record, I just wanted to do Bush again and if you want to take part, then hands up, and if not -"
The band's original guitarist and bassist both opted out at that point, but that did not stop Gavin pushing ahead with a new record, The Sea Of Memories, released last year on the group's own label. It seems it was crucial for the singer to have new material to play, rather than just past glories.
"There's some bands that nostalgia works for, but for me the only way to do Bush was to come back with a strong record," he says.
"Otherwise it just wouldn't work, so I was delighted with the response to Sea Of Memories, and the next thing is to go into the studio in September or October and start the next one."
There has been one major change with Gavin, though – he has been influenced by hip hop when writing songs.
That might sound bizarre for a man at the helm of an out and out rock band, but all is not as it seems.
"I used to take the opposite route to writing songs that I do now, as I would write folk songs that would turn into rock songs," he says.
"Now I write the songs like a hip hop producer puts tracks together, writing atmospheres for me to sing on. So I have completely turned around how I write and that makes it more exciting.
"Now I can show exactly what I'm thinking, and then let the rest of the band play."
And some of those newer tracks will be played at the ABC.
