Andrew WK aims to set drumming world record
Starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, WK will drum at the Oakley flagship store in New York’s Times Square, as part of “Live Music Day,” and Viacom’s O Music Awards 24 hour live stream special.
THR reported that Questlove will sit in with WK at the start (and several other guest drummers will follow), and that WK has been preparing by using weights instead of sticks while air drumming.
“I want to feel like it’s harder than it is,” WK told THR. “I’d rather be over-prepared.”
WK is nominated in the Must Follow Artist on Twitter category of the O Awards.
