It’s been about six weeks since Wembley Stadium hosted London’s return to the Taylor Hawkins Tribute Concertbut we didn’t forget the star event — and neither did anyone else Nandi Bushell. The tween drummer took to Twitter on Wednesday to give a heartfelt shoutout to another young musical prodigy: Hawkins’ 16-year-old son Shane.
Bushell spread the love in a one-minute video made up of clips of the duo together before the tribute concert: “Jamming with Shane backstage at Wembley was one of my favorite moments, ” he wrote in the caption. “Shane is one of the nicest, friendliest, most talented people I’ve ever met. He’s a lot of fun to be around and has a lot of energy.”
The pair practiced several songs in the video, including Foo Fighters’ classic “Everlong” and Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” — only, both songs featured Dave Grohl drumming on their studio versions. Although drums seem to be the kids’ instrument of choice, Bushell also flaunts his bass licks while Hawkins shreds on guitar.
Not that we need any more confirmation, but Shane sure makes his dad proud. See Bushell’s post below.
Here’s the latest in Bushell’s seemingly endless jam sessions: Earlier this week, he posted a clip of him rocking out to Rage Against the Machine’s “Murder In The Name” with his younger brother, whom he says he taught about “all the greatest rock and metal bands.” And earlier this month, he also shared an impressive cover of Eminem’s famous fast track “Rap God.”
