The Foo Fighters welcome the adorable Nandi Bushell to the stage in LA

If you’ve been following along, you’ll know all about Nandi Bushell, the now 11-year-old London-based musical prodigy that’s been posted her performances of rock songs for the last couple of years. Most famously, she challenged Dave Grohl to a drum battle. After a spirited effort, Dave had no choice but to concede.

Thursday night (August 26) at the LA Forum, the Foos presented Nandi as a special guest. She played “Everlong” with the band. I love this kid.

    My favourite story/person during the pandemic! Seeing this all evolve over the last couple of years and the joy in that family is amazing…seeing her play with Dave and the crowd chanting her name actually gave me goosebumps.
