American musician and rock band Foo Fighters’ founder Dave Grohl appreciates a good talent. A couple of years ago, the former Nirvana drummer invited a young boy on stage to rock and boy he rocked that Enter Sandman cover impressing everyone in attendance.

Despite the ensuing pandemic that has stalled live concerts, Grohl is now entertaining his audiences from the confines of his home. Thanks to the exceptionally talented 10-year-old drummer Nandi Bushell, whose online drumming covers are a rage on YouTube, recently challenged Grohl for a drum battle.

“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 wrote along with a video of her nailing Foo Fighters’ classic hit ‘Everlong’.

Nandi’s cover was an instant hit and it caught the attention of Foo Fighters along with Grohl. Being a sport that he is, Grohl borrowed his daughter’s drumkit and accepted the challenge. Although Nandi’s cover received over 2 million views on Twitter, Grohl said he had watched the talented young musician’s videos before.

“I haven’t played that song since the day I recorded it in 1997,” he said in the response video. “Today, I’m going to give you something you may not have heard before. This is a song called ‘Dead End Friends’ from a band called Dead Crooked Vultures, which is me playing drums, Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age playing guitar and singing, and John Paul Jones from Led Zeppelin playing bass.”

“This is my response to your challenge. So now the ball is in your court,” he concluded.

Who can see a video from Nandi coming soon? We can!

  1. The very heart of your writing while appearing reasonable at first, did not really sit well with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I could surely be amazed.
