Well, I Bought My Jimi Hendrix Forever Stamps Today

21 posts in this topic

The whole sheet, front and back, looks like a picture-sleeve 45.

Imagine sending your mail with Jimi Hendrix stamps. Now you can.And now I will, thank you, America, I guess, right?

So, what else will I live to see?

I bought them a week or so ago when I ran out of my Ray Charles stamps.

You mean it made the mail move 100x faster? Maybe Amazon UK should have used them on them Filmore sets not headed to America just yet!

I thought the artwork was cheesy, but I guess I should get a sheet anyway.

The fact that Jimi is on a USPS stamp is reason enough!

I wasn't too excited by the design. Any photo of Jimi looks hipper than that stamp.

How about the Art Tatum stamp? When will that happen?

It is rather amazing that Jimi Hendrix is on a stamp though. In 1970 it did not seem likely at all. He was a symbol of all that many adults found so wrong about that crazy younger generation.

Yeah, the lady at the PO counter from whom I purchased the stamps was no older than 25 or so. I told her that gee, this is proof that in some parallel universe somewhere, everything went right. She didn't really get it, but the old guy at the station next to her's LOL'ed.

I know several people age 15-40 who certainly do not know who Jimi Hendrix is. Since he was not a hip hop or post-2000 pop country artist, they would not understand why anyone would know who he is. So the young postal employee's reaction does not surprise me.

What else will you live to see--how about a Janis Joplin stamp, which is coming out later this year.

Do not care for Janis Joplin, don't want my mail to be painfully screaming all day long, sorry.

Hendrix, Joplin - Just says to me that the Post Office will do anything to sell some stamps - especially if people save them and don't use them.
