10 Year Old Music Prodigy Nandi Bushell Releases Her First Original Song, And It's Pure Rock and Grohl

When 10 year old drumming sensation Nandi Bushell started posting videos of herself playing drums along to some of her favorite rock songs - we're pretty sure she never imagined it would lead to her having a virtual battle of the bands with one of the biggest rock stars in the world - Dave Grohl.


If you are unfamiliar- Bushell's talents caught our eye last year with her YouTube drumming videos.  She caught the eye of several rock stars - but her target was set on one - Mr Foo Fighter himself - Dave Grohl.  


Earlier this year - she challenged Dave to a drum off ... and after some persuasion from friends - Dave engaged in a digital battle that saw him write a theme song for the mighty percussionist.  


Nandi was floored - but wasn't ready to let him win the war - so she donned he best cape, picked up her guitar, bass and drum sticks - and penned her own song to Dave, exclaiming - 


“Mr Grohl. The song you wrote for me was truly, truly EPIC! You really are LEGENDARY! 


I wrote a song for you to say THANK YOU! I made up and played all the instrument parts myself, just like you! It’s called ‘ROCK and GROHL, The EPIC Battle’!


I hope you love my song, as much as I love your song for me! Whoever wins this round, it’s been an HONOUR to battle you. The Rock Gods of old are happy! Thank you Dave Grohl and [Foo Fighters].”




All we can say is that there better be a time post COVID when these two can share a stage together!
