The dream of many musicians is to share the stage with their great heroes of the guitar or drums, but almost always, this aspiration remains a mere fantasy. But there are fortunate and talented beings who do achieve this dream and fill us with hope with their incredible performances alongside the great rock stars.
Nandi Bushell is the 11-year-old girl who recently played with Foo Fighters at the Los Angeles Forum and definitely brought the show to a close, as the energy she gave off with the group, and especially with Dave Grohl, invaded the entire compound.
The little drummer prodigy and the Foo Fighters performed the band's classic Everlong, a single that in 1997 brought them world fame. Bushell's performance was simply flawless, she managed to bring freshness to the song, and together she and Grohl drove the audience crazy.
This invitation was not accidental, as Bushell has a cover channel on YouTube, and in August of last year, she challenged Dave Grohl after playing Everlong. Surprisingly, Dave was quick to respond to the challenge and shared another song with the little girl. In addition, he accepted an interview, and thus their friendship was born.
Dave Grohl commented before the performance what Bushell did to him:
“This person inspired me last year so much,” he said. “In a time when you would pick up your phone or turn on your computer and all you would have was bad news, for that one day you could pick up the phone and see this connection between two people that have never met, making music together and spreading joy and love all across the world.”
Now the video of Bushell with the Foo Fighters has gone viral, and magazines like Rolling Stone and Vulture have shared their pleasant surprise for this unique show.
