Dave Grohl Accepts 10-Year-Old Drummer’s Virtual Drum-Off Challenge

On August 17th, in a viral clip viewed over 500,000 times on YouTube and 2 million times on Twitter, 10-year-old Nandi Bushell — who posts videos of her drumming along to rock hits — delivered a note-perfect performance of Foo Fighters’ “Everlong.”

Bushell previously went viral with a cover of Queens of the Stone Age’s “No One Knows” and also played Nirvana’s “In Bloom” on an episode of Ellenearlier this year; both songs feature Grohl’s stick work.

“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,” Bushell wrote in the video’s caption.

On Saturday, Grohl responded to the challenge, telling Bushell in a video uploaded onto the Foo Fighters’ Twitter that he was bombarded by hundreds of texts about the young drummer’s challenge.
