The thing that's most remarkable is how calm he is. An hour ago Andrew W.K was leading a sold out show in sing-a-long choruses and multiple stage dives. but as I enter the back room of this small club, I find him looking over the itinerary for the next month of his tour and quietly drinking bottled water. He's sober and calm. The performance has obviously taken a lot out of him. I'm still half drunk and covered in sweat from the show, so there's a part of me that's having trouble putting together how the man I'm meeting in this green room is the same man I just watched electrify an audience ...
