Taking a day off from flying fighter planes bare chested and shooting wild tigers, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin displayed his musical talents preforming a piano solo and singing “Blueberry Hill” for a cancer charity fundraiser at the ice stadium in St. Petersburg. Before his performance he noted: “Like the majority of people I cannot — but do like to sing and to play — so you’ll have to rough it.” He has always been known for his modesty.
According to Russia Today, when the concert was over Putin took Sharon Stone by arm and sang “Grass Near Home” an ode to Russian Cosmonauts.
