Get ready to learn the name Nandi Bushell. She is the 10-year-old wunderkind musician from England who is dominating in her battle with Foo Fighters legend Dave Grohl.
The friendly (we think) competition began in August when Bushell went viral after posting an Instagram video of her playing drums to the Foo Fighters’ 1997 banger, “Everlong.”
Bushell also said it was her dream to one day jam with Grohl and Foo drummer Taylor Hawkins, adding “Mr. Grohl I would love to have a drum battle with you!”
“Challenge accepted. Haven’t played these songs in a loooooong time…..thanks for the inspiration!!! Your move!!!” he tweeted, while conceding that she bettered him in the first round.
This brings us to Round 2. Grohl — continues to prove he is one of the coolest dudes in music — wrote a special song for her. Along with the “Grohlettes” singing “Nandi” in between verses, Grohl tweeted a video of his new song, singing Number one supergirl / Best drummer in the world/ Always right on time/ Hero wunderkind/ She got the power/ She got the sound/ Nandi on the drums make the world go round.
For her part, Bushell already replied on social media as well.
I cant believe Mr. Grohl wrote a song about me!?! This is so so so #EPIC!! I think its the best song EVER, in the WORLD, EVER!!! Thank you so much Dave. You have raised the stakes to all instruments! I accept your next challenge! Thank you to the whole Grohl family! @foofighters pic.twitter.com/rWgTBwEtyb— Nandi Bushell (@Nandi_Bushell) September 14, 2020
And if you think this is all a publicity stunt… you are way wrong. This girl delivers the goods.
