U.S. Postal Service Launches Jimi Hendrix Forever Stamp
Posted on March 14, 2014
The U.S. Postal Service has launched a Jimi Hendrix Forever Stamp. The stamp dedication was held prior to a Jimi Hendrix Celebration concert at the SXSW Outdoor Stage at Butler Park. The stamp was designed by artist Rudy Gutierrez. The stamp kicks off the U.S. Postal Service's 2014 Music Icons series.
Janie Hendrix said in a statement, "I am deeply touched and so are other members of the Hendrix family by the issuance of this stamp, and I wish to thank the United States Postal Service for bestowing one of our nation's highest honors on my brother Jimi. While my brother has been cited many times as being among the most influential musicians of all time, the recognition implicit in his being portrayed on a U.S. postage stamp ranks as an unparalleled honor."
