Stephen Colbert admits he used to impersonate Mick Jagger — then busts out some dance moves
New Late Show host Stephen Colbert confirmed on Tuesday that he used to be the lead singer of a Rolling Stones cover band, Vanity Fair reported.
“We were called A Shot In The Dark,” Colbert told radio host Howard Stern. “We called ourselves ‘A Sh*t In The Dark,, ’cause we sucked so badly.”
“What was your go-to song when you were ‘Mick Jagger’?” Stern asked.
“‘Brown Sugar,'” Colbert said, before breaking into the song — and his best Jagger shuffle — at Stern’s request.
“The dancing is great,” Stern gushed, before cutting the song off and adding, “I’ve had enough of that.”
