Nandi Bushell, an amazing musical prodigy, performed a truly badass drum cover of the classic Foo Fighters song “Everlong”. The 10-year-old performed the song with rapid-fire skill and the expert ease that’s usually found in someone who’s many times her age. Nonetheless, Nandi is a big fan of the band and hopes to play with them someday.
My dream is to one day jam with Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and all the Foo Fighters! Mr Grohl I would love to have a drum battle with you! I LOVE Everlong it’s really hard to play as it’s so fast but so much FUN!!!
Nandi also challenged frontman Dave Grohl to a drum battle, just because she loves the band so much.

At the end of his response, Grohl put the challenge back in Nandi’s court. Nandi readily accepted
This is UNREAL! I can’t believe Dave Grohl actually accepted my drum battle, Thank you! Now it’s my turn to learn ‘dead end friends’ by @crookedvultures! I am going to checkmate this one too! Thank you Harper for lending your Dad the kit! @foofighters #davegrohl #foofighters pic.twitter.com/gAyoVYSySM

Although she won this round of the battle, Nandi reminded everyone the challenge was all in good fun.

Dave Grohl responded with an original Nandi theme song that he performed with his family.
Nandi followed up with her own song “Rock and Grohl”, playing all of the instruments herself.
Nandi meets Dave Grohl, who wants to write a song with her and have her play with the Foo Fighters.
Nandi isn’t just a drummer, she plays guitar, bass, keyboards, and other instruments with amazing skill.
