Challenge Accepted! Dave Grohl Does a Drum Battle w/a 10-Year-Old Girl
Dave Grohl had a drum battle with a ten-year-old girl. He posted a video of him playing the song "Everlong" while tagging ten-year-old Nandi Bushell telling her it's her move. This came after Nandi tweeted earlier this month that it would be a dream to jam with Dave Grohl. Dave thanked Nandi for the inspiration to play the songs he hasn't played for a long time and also thanked his daughter Harper for letting him borrow her drum set.

Elvis Costello's new album Hey Clockface, which doesn't contain "Phonographic Memory," is out October 30th.
