@the_bushell_family A few months after falling in love with #Nirvana I discovered Queens of the Stone Age! This is when I started to become obsessed with Mr Grohl’s playing. I started to form my style from copying him. I began to practice hours every day. I was having so much fun. I was 9 years old in this video. My sticks were nearly as big as me! #queensofthestoneage #davegrohl #davegrohlismyhero #nooneknows #drum #drums #drumming #drummer #drummergirl #girldrummer #superdrummer #drumlife #cymbal #drumuniversity #percussion #femaledrummer #femaledrummers #drumfamily #batterie #percussão #baterista #zildjiancovers ♬ original sound – The_Bushell_Family
