A drumming grandma has gone viral after performing covers of
songs by Slipknot,
Paramore, and
Disturbed.

Dorothea Taylor, whohas been drumming for 56 years, is a
private drum and drumline instructor, as well as her church’s
organist, according to the bio on her Instagram.

“Drummers come in all ages, sizes, shapes, ethnicities. And
regardless of how good you are, how old you are, we’re all still
part of the drumming family,†she stated in one of her videos
earlier this year.

Gaining popularity as of late for her cover of Paramore’s
‘Ain’t It Fun’, Taylor’s rendition of the 2013 song caught
the attention of the band’s frontwoman Hayley Williams.

“Love her, she’s a badass,†Williams tweeted, sharing a
video of Taylor’s cover shared by a fan.

Taylor’s social media channels also play host to her jamming
out with her grandson and she often shares some basic drum
techniques.

According to a profile in Drum
Magazine
, Taylor has her own classic rock/new country band
called Badlander. She also drums for the All City Choir and subs in
with a couple of other bands when she is needed.

In the profile, Taylor revealed that she started playing drums
at the age of 13 when she joined a drum and bugle corps in her
hometown in Michigan. She got her first set of drums in high school
and joined a band after she graduated.

Meanwhile,
Rage Against The Machine‘s Tom Morello has surprised a
10-year-old fan by gifting her one of his signature
guitars.

Nandi Bushell’s recent
cover of Rage classic ‘Guerrilla Radio’
, in which she
played drums, bass, and guitar, caught the attention of Morello and
prompted him to have one of his new
signature Fender Soul Power Stratocaster’s
delivered to young
musician.

Bushell dedicated her cover to Black Lives Matter and the fight
to end racism, and Morello shared the performance on Twitter,
writing: “Well now we are on the right track.â€
