On June 20th, Andrew W.K. broke the world record for longest consecutive drum session by playing for 24 straight hours. The following day, W.K. spoke at a press conference about his recent feat.
“I actually never got tired because there was so much adrenaline and so many people that were especially giving so much energy,” W.K. said. “It really felt like a team effort.”
He also added that it was actually way harder than he thought it would have been and that the one piece of advice he would have offered himself would have been to “practice drumming more.”
He added, however, that maybe it’s a good thing that he didn’t practice. “Actually, if I had known how hard it would be, I probably would have freaked out a lot more.”
