Via a friend who used to work at a modeling and acting agency in New York, some really rare and hilarious early photos of the rock musician / Party God / advice columnist Andrew W.K. have surfaced.
We asked Andrew for an explanation (and permission to publish) of the photos, and he tells us that back in the late ’90s, long before he became the the World’s Undisputed Party King, he tried his hand modeling and acting. These early headshots are a result. Andrew tells us the modeling and acting career never quite took off, but one assumes he did get ample working cutting different types of materials with that sharp jaw line. Hubba hubba.
