Viral drumming sensation Nandi Bushell wants to meet Billie Eilish: "I like her style"


Nandi Bushell has earned many big name fans. Dave Grohl, Tom Morello and Flea are among the rockers who’ve sung the praises of the 10-year-old music prodigy, who famously challenged the Foo Fighters frontman to a drum battle last year. But there’s another famous musician Bushell’s keen to meet.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bushell says she hopes to one day meet Billie Eilish.

“I like her style,” Bushell says. “It’s a style that hasn’t been invented — it’s her own, like, anti-pop.”

Grohl, by the way, is also a big Eilish fan — he’s said that her connection with her audience reminded him of  playing shows with Nirvana in 1991.

As for Bushell’s other future plans, she hopes to “write more songs, eventually create an album, tour around the world, and make that album platinum.”

“And hopefully get a Grammy by 14 or 15,” she adds.
