It’s safe to say, nobody has partied harder, longer, or more fervently than the undisputed King of Partying himself, Andrew W.K.. The party music mission he embarked upon in 1999, and solidified in 2001 with the release of his signature hard rock tune “Party Hard”, remains unswervingly consistent, while also adopting a dizzying array of roles that took him into unusual territory for a rock ’n’ roll musician. These include being an advice columnist for the Village Voice and Vice Magazine, the host of a Cartoon Network children's game show, and giving motivational lectures on positive partying at Yale, NYU, Carnegie Mellon, and the U.K.'s Oxford University. As the prodigious piano playing party prophet nears his second decade of dynamic performance, his hard partying spirit shows no signs of slowing... or softening.
