Dear Golden Voice,
If you are looking for an additional act for Saturday afternoon or evening, may I suggest: Andrew W.K.? I'm pretty sure he would be 100% awesome, maybe in the Gobi Tent just after Turbonegro finish their set with All My friends Are Dead...

correct me if im wrong but i honestly dont think he wants to perform that music anymore, like he's ashamed of his old ways

I've seen AWK several times and I would whole heartedly support him being there. The reason he hasn't been around much the last couple years has nothing to do with him giving up or being embarrassed of his past work. He apparently signed a bad contract that has severely restricted how he can release music and perform. He recently wrote an article that touches on it a little bit. He cut his hair off a few years back then discovered that it was in his contract that he couldn't perform unless he looked like Andrew WK, which he no longer did. He also can't put music out under Andrew WK in America right now because of some label dispute. I think it's similar to what happened to Poe.

I'd only andrew wk if it was him, crashing the Killers set and taking over their instruments.

chances are if he were there he would be in the Sahara tent, the way his performances have been recently.

Andrew W.K is INSANE! I met him a few years ago and he's just as crazy* in person as he is onstage.

*in a good way

Very true, I met him and after talking to him for a few minutes he asked me "have you ever considered joining our band? I'm looking for a keyboard player". No one in their right mind would ask a complete stranger that, but it was still awesome and my claim to fame for a while.

Both of those vidoes were horrible. I would not watch him live.

When I picture his shows in my mind, people are jumping around and throwing beers and shit, so I guess it would have to be in the beer garden. I'm in.

I think Andrew W.K. would be better suited for Brochella, no?

Andrew WK is amazing live... as for his musical ability coming into question... he's a concert pianist, and although not as impressive considering his music, plays all the instruments on his albums from what I understand.

I would love this, straight from his website:

"2007 also saw the first Andrew W.K. solo party tour, in which Andrew drove a Cadillac through the west coast of Canada and the US, all along the way stopping in each town to have a nightly party. The "High-Way Party Cruiser Tour" went to Los Angeles, Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, and Calgary. Each event began with Andrew improvising on the piano alone on a stage before they frequently evolved into giant parties, with most of the audience dancing on stage with Andrew, themselves playing the piano and singing the lyrics."

AWK is the single best performer I have ever seen live. There is no contest. Although, I do prefer him with a full band backing him which he has not done in a while. However, after a show here in NYC a while back I asked him if he would tour with the band again and his answer was "absolutely". So who knows. Also, he is one friendly dude.

in terms of raw energy and feel fucking great atmosphere andrew wk live is hard to beat.

though I've heard ozzfest was the worst possible place to see him. or was that warped tour? I don't remember.

isn't he a motivational speaker now or something?

Sounds like some Rollins shit.




Once bat-shit crazy frontman now turned into a public speaker

I have nothing but love for Andrew W.K.! Saw him live in 03 in a small club in Santa Barbara, and he killed it. His first album is a classic party record to those who understand the meaning of sarcasm. Hilarious! Does he even still play?
