JIMI HENDRIX: Stamp of Approval

Jimi Hendrix has made it. He now has his own stamp. The U.S. Postal Service unveiled it today (Thursday), not in his hometown of Seattle, which would make sense, but rather 2,100 miles south in Austin, Texas at the South By Southwest festival. It is now on sale at Post Offices nationwide, online at usps.com/stamps, at the Postal Store on eBay at ebay.com/stamps, and through 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724). And, it's a Forever Stamp, which means you can use it no matter how high the postal rates go.

The stamp dedication was held prior to a Jimi Hendrix Celebration concert at the SXSW Outdoor Stage at Butler Park, featuring performances by Slash, Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Robby Krieger of The Doors and many others.
