Linkin Park‘s loving the latest rock cover from young music prodigy Nandi Bushell.
The talented tween, who says she just discovered Linkin Park’s music this week, was inspired to post a high-energy cover on her drums of “Numb” this weekend. She also paid tribute to the late Chester Bennington, and paid compliments to the rest of the band.
“I discovered @linkinpark week!” she tweeted Saturday (June 12). “So many great songs! So this is #numetal! I like the keyboards and the DJ scratching. #chesterbennington had such an incredible voice. He sang with real #power. Loving your work robbourdon @BradDelson @joehahnLP davefarrell @mikeshinoda #linkinpark.”
“Wow, this is awesome @Nandi_Bushell,” read a tweet on Linkin Park’s Twitter account just a few hours later.
Their stamp of approval caught Bushell’s eye, and she excitedly wrote back, “Yes! Wow! This is amazing!!! @linkinpark thank you so much! Your music is so so so good!”
Previously, Bushell has drawn high praise from the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, and she’s offered impressive takes on songs by Led Zeppelin, My Chemical Romance, Blur, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pixies, Slipknot and more.
