The stamp is designed to resemble a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve and shows Hendrix wearing one of his trademark military jackets and playing one of his white Fender Stratocaster guitars. Last year, the Postal Service honored other musicians such as Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Lydia Mendoza as part of its new music icons series. Janis Joplin was added to the list in August this year. Wish to have all these stamps soon.
