In August 2020, a talented young drummer named Nandi Bushell challenged Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters to a drum-off.
A couple of weeks later, Grohl responded.
Since then, the two musicians formed an unlikely friendship.
In September 2020, Grohl even wrote a song about Nandi and her musical gifts. They’ve chatted virtually. And now, Nandi’s dream of playing on stage with Grohl has been fulfilled.
On Thursday at a live show in California, the 11-year-old played drums while the Foo Fighters performed “Everlong” — the same song she played drums to when she challenged Grohl.
“It happened!!! It was #EPIC!!! Thank you so much @foofighters!!! I had the best night ever jamming with you at @TheForum! Thank you so much Mr. Grohl and Taylor!” Nandi wrote on Twitter.
