(CBS/AP) Mick Jagger gave President Barack Obama's singing attempt a big thumbs up. The rocker called Mr. Obama's singing of the blues this week "courageous."
Jagger said the president did pretty well when he joined a White House blues concert. During the performance, Mr. Obama sang a few lines of the blues anthem "Sweet Home Chicago" at the urging of B.B. King and Buddy Guy.

The Rolling Stones frontman also told the Associated Press he was pleased to see that Michelle Obama was wearing a dress for the event that was designed by L'Wren Scott, his longtime girlfriend.
Jagger also answered the question that's been on the minds of many Rolling Stones fans: Will the Stones get together this year for a 50th anniversary tour? Jagger says he looks forward to doing something, but "nothing is yet booked."
Jagger and other blues greats played the East Room as part of an "In Performance at the White House" concert that will air on PBS on Monday.
