Showing that even a rock god can be impressed, Mick Jagger tweeted to his followers about a private tour of the White House and playing for President Barack Obama in a rehearsal for a tribute concert to the blues, The Washington Post’s 44 Politics and Policy blog reported.

The Stones frontman posted photographs and tweeted, “had first rehearsal at #whitehouse today and had a lovely tour of the West Wing.” He also noted that he met Obama, whom he described as “really relaxed and happy.” Obama dropped by the rehearsal and stayed to listen to a few songs, according to the Post.

The two photos Jagger attached were of him and girlfriend and fashion designer L’Wren Scott. Jagger, along with Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Derek Trucks, and Keb Mo, performed Tuesday night at the White House as part of the Black History Month official concert.

The show, which didn’t end until the stars cajoled the president to join them on the stage, will be broadcast at 9 p.m. Monday on PBS.
