Next, Radio host Daniel Carter got involved by asking if you could put a price on partying. When the drummer eplied with the price, W.K. offered to pay the fine. "I was responsible for the sonic party power that caused you to speed," he wrote.

Although Mitchell refused the offer, he ended up getting tickets to see Andrew W.K. live in London. Let's just hope he doesn't end up with another ticket getting there.
