Even rock legends get starstruck.

After President Obama swung by to watch Mick Jagger practice for a White House blues concert, the Rolling Stones frontman could not resist relaying the encounter to his followers on Twitter.

"Met President Obama who listened to a few tunes during rehearsal he seemed really relaxed and happy!" declared Jagger, tweeting a link to a photo of himself and fashion designer-girlfriend L'Wren Scott. During his visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the singer toured the West Wing with Scott, his equally Twitter-happy companion, who posted an image of a White House doorway.

"Happy Presidents day it was amazing to meet the President ... we loved every moment," she wrote.

Jagger was scheduled to perform a concert tribute to blues music at the White House Tuesday night, alongside Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Jeff Beck, Derek Trucks and Keb Mo. The event -- hosted by the Obamas as part of Black History Month -- will air Feb. 27 on PBS at 9 p.m. EST.
