presidential musicians

Meet Yoweri Museveni, he's the president of Uganda. This 67 year old african leader has recently gotten in to rap, he recorded a couple songs which are now very popular in Uganda. His songs are favorites of local radio stations and night clubs in the country. He actually soon wants to record a whole album. Makes me wonder, what other national leaders could become musicians? Here is the US, Barack Obama and some of the people in his cabinet could form a band? Obama on base, maybe Hillary Clinton on keyboard? In the United Kingdom, maybe Queen Elizabeth II and David Cameron could form a Simon and Garfunkel like duo group? What else does everyone think?
