The Great Kat

From W.K.pedia

Andrew W.K. auditioned to play drums for The Great Kat shortly after moving to New York.

He provided brief details about this experience in an interview with The Wire, which was published as "Andrew WK Unedited Transcript". Retrieved March 20, 2024.

I auditioned to play in a band called the Great Kat. She was - she still is - a virtuoso speed metal guitarist. She was looking for a drummer, and I saw an ad in The Village Voice. So I auditioned - took the train to Deer Park, and I actually got the gig. But soon afterwards I actually quit, because it was a very intense situation unfortunately. She's incredibly talented and very intense. But I think that's when I realized I didn't want to play drums in another band. I wanted to do music of my own.
