What's the point of having someone open for you who has at least four solo albums out, if they're not going to play a single song off any of them and instead are just going to pick previously recorded music by other bands to play out loud? What's the difference between Andrew W.K.'s act and the music played over the P.A. while the crew sets up the Black Sabbath stage? I just don't understand what does he do, just sit on stage while the songs he selects are being played?
