According to a new biography by David Maraniss, Barack Obama was a big music fan in his college years. Barry -- as he was then known -- often played Jimi Hendrix, Earth, Wind & Fire and Billie Holiday, but Maraniss writes that he was best known for "his wicked impression of Mick Jagger."
"He could do the walk, the strut, the face," writes Maraniss in "Barack Obama: The Story" (Yahoo acquired a copy of the book, which is out June 19).
As fate would have it, Obama sang with Mick Jagger at a White House event in February. The president joined Jagger and B.B. King to croon "Sweet Home Chicago" at the "In Performance in the White House" celebration of blues.
A younger Obama allegedly also enjoyed acting out Jagger's reaction to the chaotic unfoldings of a Rolling Stones set at the Altamont Speedway Free Festival in 1969. Many were injured and four attendees died as unruly fans clashed with members of the Hell's Angels at the concert, which was made infamous by the 1970 documentary "Gimme Shelter."
Other revelations in the book include Obama's love for hats, his affected smoking style and his love of the camera. Head over to Yahoo for more on the story.
