10-year-old musician Nandi Bushell recently expressed a desire to take on Dave Grohl in a drum-off. Now, the Foo Fighters frontman has officially accepted her challenge.
Bushell said the following while sharing a cover of Foo Fighters’ “Everlong”:
“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!!! #davegrohl #taylorhawkins #foofighters Thank you for supporting me @ludwigdrumshq @zildjiancompany @vicfirth #zildjian #vicfirth #zildjiancovers #ludwigdrums #ludwig”
Grohl has since responded with the following:
“I haven’t played that song since the day I recorded it in 1997. Our drummer Taylor Hawkins plays ‘Everlong’ for us every single night. But Nandi, in the last week, I’ve gotten at least 100 texts from people all over the world saying, ‘This girl is challenging you to a drum-off, what are you gonna do?’ Now look I’ve seen all your videos, I’ve seen you on TV. You’re an incredible drummer. I’m really flattered that you’ve picked some of my songs to do for your videos and you’ve done them all perfectly.”
“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.”
