For the second installment of our brand new BACKTRACKS series supported by adidas Originals, where we take musicians back to one of their most memorable city spots, we took Andrew W.K. back to Cafe Wha? in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village. The now-widely known master of ceremonies recanted a story about a time when he was not so widely-known: his first New York City show ever. Well actually, it was an audition, and he played "Rocketman" by Elton John, and it was basically terrible. Watch the always formidable, always inspirational Andrew W.K. tell you himself!
