Nandi Bushell has earned another big-name fan.

The 10-year-old drumming sensation has gone viral with her enthusiastic covers of artists including Nirvana and Rage Against the Machine. Most recently, she shared a performance of the Metallica classic “Enter Sandman,” which caught the attention of the band’s guitarist, Kirk Hammett, who re-posted Bushell’s video on his own Instagram.

“How could I not repost this?” Hammett wrote in the caption, alongside several lightning bolt and “rock on” emojis.

In addition to Hammett, Tom Morello is also a Nandi Bushell fan. In fact, he sent her one of his signature Fender “Soul Power” Stratocaster guitars after seeing her version of Rage’s “Guerilla Radio.”

Earlier this month, Bushell shared a cover of the Foo Fighters song “Everlong” and challenged Dave Grohl to a drum off.
