Is Andrew W.K. the "Worst Opener...

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (08/14/13)
Is Andrew W.K. really the "worst opener imaginable" for the Black Sabbath tour? I say no way! Read my article refuting the notion.
Is Andrew W.K. the worst opener imaginable? No way! He's not even the worst opener Black Sabbath has ever had. (Let's not forget that Crazy Town shared the stage with with metal legends on Ozzfest 2001.) Although the DJ gig certainly wasn't the ideal display, and I'm sure he'd have preferred a regular performance as well, Andrew W.K. made the most of an awkward situation and, true to his form, partied hard.

Andrew WK never disappoints with whatever he does. However, I do think his actual songs would have been better for a tour with the grand masters of doom

I just don't get the appeal. He was amusing like a decade ago, but thats about it. They could do much much better than him.

I feel like it's rough being the opener for a "classic rock" band no matter who you are. If AWK came out with the full band, it would probably get the same reaction by most of the audience. Although just being a glorified DJ probably exacerbated people's opinions.

AWK with a full band is amazing and one of a kind.
The DJ thing he does sometimes is pretty bad.
