Fantastic young musician Nandi Bushell posted her cover of Foo Fighters‘ “Everlong” on August 19. Bushell challenged Grohl to a drum battle in the video, saying in the description “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!!!
On August 29, Grohl responded because he’s just that type of guy.
“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.”
Haven’t played these songs in a loooooong time…..thanks for the inspiration!!!
Your friend in rock,

Nandee has seen the video and since posted a reaction:
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

Anyone else have a feeling we’re going to see Bushell on stage with Foo Fighters once the pandemic is over?
