In what seems to be the perfect challenge for a dude that just can’t stop partying, Andrew W.K. will be attempting to break the world record for Longest Drum Session in a Retail Store tomorrow, bashing the skins for a whopping 24 hours straight.
The Party Hard singer, who has built a reputation around his high-energy live show, will be taking on the challenge in a shop in Oakley as part of the O Music Awards. Special guests like The Roots drummer Questlove are scheduled to stop by to jam with W.K. and presumably keep him from passing out face first into his kit at the 4am mark.
The man behind I Get Wet seems pretty confident he can break the record, telling Loudwire:
“When the O Music Awards first told me about this event, I felt a combination of excitement and pure fear. I began to realize that actually playing drums for a few hours would be challenging, let alone 24 hours non-stop! This feat of rhythmic endurance is going to push me to my party limits. Pounding out a beat for an entire earthly rotation will be a life-changing and life-threatening adventure!”
The entire 24-hour challenge will be streamed live at OMusicAwards.com. We can only assume that Andrew W.K. will have a hefty supply of Fresh + Sexy Wipes on hand for the challenge. Dude’s got some mad chops. Check out his drum solo below.
